Mixtape: Golden Oldies even the grandkids will love!

Each week Kinderling shares a Mixtape.

Here's a mixtape to celebrate all the wonderful Grandparents out there. We know Grandparents come in all shapes, sizes, ages and backgrounds - just like their music tastes! So we've designed this eclectic playlist especially for you, our beloved Nans & Pops, Nonnas & Nonnos, Nai Nais & Ye Yes.

It's the perfect way to introduce your fave classic tracks to the grandies, with a few of their new faves thrown into the mix too.
