QUALITY
 

Kindermusik Radio offers a wide variety of music for babies and preschoolers, helpfully grouped into five stations: "Bounce and Rhymes," "Animals, Animals," "Get Up and Move!" "Mostly Lullabies," and "Tell Me a Story." The current selection's title, lyrics, and album art are displayed, but this information doesn't always refresh automatically, so parents might have to re-select the station to get up-to-date information. If parents hear a song they especially like, they can buy the track or the entire album through iTunes by clicking on a link in the app.
