Rockabye Baby debuts Guns N' Roses album for tots
Tue Oct 27
When trying to lull your babe to bed, the last thing you want hitting his sensitive ears are Axl Rose's high-pitched squeals. But Rockabye Baby has found a way to turn Guns N' Roses' metal anthems into melodies intended to soothe, not stir. Like all of the series releases, this new album uses softer instrumentation. Tracks we're most excited for: "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Knockin' On Heaven's Door." Add the album to your wishlist , or check out Rockabye Baby's other remakes including AC/DC, Aerosmith and the Beach Boys.

Archie Comics announces an issue starring the child of one of our readers
Mon Oct 26
Not sure if you've noticed, but we've been offering some pretty great giveaways of late. Today, for example, you can enter to win tickets to Sesame Street Live: When Elmo Grows Up , the Imagination Movers in concert or a $50 Children's Place gift certificate. Back in the spring, we did what we consider to be the coolest contest so far: In conjunction with the annual Kids Comic Con , we gave the child of one lucky Time Out Kids reader a chance to appear in an Archie comic . An adorable girl named Summer won and, after months of work (the artist, Dan Parent, not only drew her likeness, Alex Simmons the writer made sure to capture her personality as well), the issue is almost here . Archie & Friends #139 Summer Spring Show will hit comic book shops on January 13, 2010. According to the press release, the plot is as follows: "Betty and Veronica babysit Summer. It soon becomes apparent that everyone's favorite comic book teens are in for a...
Vintage viewing: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown airs this week
Mon Oct 26
Although this Peanuts Halloween special first aired back in 1966, it's popular enough to be shown in prime time in 2009. And why not? It's still fun to giggle at Linus as he waits in vain for the Great Pumpkin (his version of Godot) to arrive, and to cringe along with Charlie Brown as he receives rocks instead of treats. The half-hour show is airing on ABC at 8pm this Tuesday, October 27 and Wednesday, October 28. If your kids are too busy to catch it (or already in bed), think about buying the box set of Peanuts specials , including A Charlie Brown Christmas and He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown . Deprive the family of these classics, and your kids very well may give you a lot of "good grief."
