I have a 2.5-year-old.
Back in August, I shared with you her top-five playlist of songs. Spoiler alert: No. 1 was and still is "Baby Shark."
We’ve found various versions of the song to help switch up what we watch and what this momma’s mind can take, which I'll share below.
But first, a little background.
"Baby Shark" likely originated from a campfire song or chant.
The song was most popularized by a video produced by Pinkfong, an education brand within South Korean media startup SmartStudy. "Baby Shark” was released Nov. 25, 2015, and as of January 2019, this version has garnered more than 2.3 billion views on YouTube, while all videos related to Pinkfong's song approach 5 billion views, making it the most-viewed educational video phenomenon of all time.
