Concerning the blistering annoyance of most children’s music, I find that it’s seldom the song itself that proves grating, but the frequency with which it’s played that truly becomes the point of contention.

And yes, I agree, it isn’t that bad. At first. But even on the first listen, surely you can tell that the “Twelve Days of Christmas”-esque catalog of animal sounds each verse is ONLY going to get more aggravating with each successive play.
I now hear this song in my sleep. It’s only been three days since he discovered it.
