Car Tunes is a perfect addition to your vehicle’s music selection. Music makes car rides with children so much more fun (and often bearable!) and this 3-CD pack has the titles Travelling Songs for in the Car, Play School in the Car and Bananas in Pyjamas – Bumping and a Jumping. Play School in the Car in particular has old school presenters  Noni Hazelhurst  and John Hamblin (parents will remember them well) singing fun songs like “Buckle Up”, “They’re Digging a Hole in the Road”, “Driving through the Night”  and a fantastically fun “I Spy”.
