Celebrate the universal language of music with the happiest playlist in the world!
Many studies underline the importance of introducing children to music at an early age, and even while they are still in the womb. Among the extensive positive developmental effects outlined in these studies, many of them also mention the positive social effects; such as helping children to experience empathy and interact more sociably with others.
Above being the universal language and having scientifically proven positive effects on children, music is the key to expressing the most universal feelings - love and togetherness. And so, in 1981 the French Minister of Culture declared Fête de la Musique a national holiday. Now, over 30 years later, World Music Day has spread and is held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.
So on June 21st, take the time to listen to music with your loved ones. To help out, we've compiled what we believe to be the happiest playlist in the world so that you make the most out of this meaningful day with your family, friends, and little one!
Check out our Spotify playlist below, and our child-safe SoundBub Bluetooth speaker here to play music and help your family celebrate!
