  • The Best Kids' Jams of 2011

    Dan Zane and Friends
    Your house might as well be a concert hall. Just ask the little drummer boy in your kitchen (then lock up the pots and pans).

    Cut through the noise with these melodic kids' albums. From pop ballads to banjo jams, they're the best we heard in 2011.

    A Dog Named Moo, by Essence
    To get her son to complete everyday tasks (getting dressed, taking baths), the San Francisco vocalist chanted these ditties to him before they blossomed into full-fledged hits. We love the ukulele- and banjo-laced jams, especially the cutely silly "Everybody Has a Butt," $10 (MP3 and CD).

    Big Bully, by Recess Music
    Uplifting folk-pop performed by an all-star cast (Milkshake, Renee & Jeremy, The Uncle Brothers) is perfect for road trips. Bundled in each song are nuggets of sage advice ("When you ignore a bully, their power goes away"), $9 (MP3); $13 (CD).

    Bottoms Up
    Jordan Blackmore of NYC's Three Squares Studio is a nice young man who likes to get knotty. Here, he shows New York editor Jordan Blumberg how to keep her hair out of the punch bowl with help from a flashy top bun.

    Step 1Step 1
    Step 1
    Pull hair into a tight (think face-lift tight), high ponytail and hold. (Flip head upside down to make sure locks are gathered right on your crown.) Spritz with moisturizing Apres Beach spray.

    Step 2Step 2
    Step 2
    Brush/smooth hair underneath and tousle front section, leaving it imperfect. Hook rubber band in at the center, twist, and tie. Brush ponytail smooth, working in a dab of cream product.

    Step 3Step 3
    Step 3
    Create a cylinder by pinching at the base and wrapping your ponytail around your fingers like a donut. Tuck the end into the center hole.

    Secure with pins around the base of the knot. Blackmore suggests one pin every half inch to start and stresses that you can't use too many hairpins. (We got up to 30.)
