IMPORTANT: K8 KidTunes account holders, use the remainder of your funds ASAP. More information.
MusicK8Kids.com is a web site featuring music games, puzzles, downloads, and more, just for kids. It is brought to you by Plank Road Publishing, publisher of Music K-8 magazine and creator of tons of great kids music, which is available for sale on MusicK8.com
Please note that the MP3s available through the K8 KidTunes store are for listening pleasure only and are not for use by teachers in music classrooms or productions. Because they are for listening pleasure only, we do not supply lyrics or written music for these songs. Please visit MusicK8.com for versions that carry full rights for use in the classroom.
Commercial use of these songs or videos is expressly forbidden. All Plank Road Publishing materials are covered by our copyright policy. It is expressly forbidden to post these files on web sites or share them electronically.
We are no longer accepting new account registrations. The K8 KidTunes will remain open for now so existing account holders can use up their funds. We suggest account holders use up their funds ASAP.
Browse music and select files to download
With an existing account, your child may log in using the username and password you both agreed upon, or just start browsing.
Free MP3 excerpts are available for every single song or video, so your child can preview the file and see if they like the music before downloading it - and you can get an idea of what type of music we offer. Flash Player is required to access the excerpts.
If your child is logged in, they can add all of the songs or videos they would like to purchase into their Music Basket and check out all at once.If your child has selected a playlist, all songs in that playlist will download as a single compressed file. Alternately, your child can click on the "Download Now" button to purchase and download individual files immediately. If there are any files in your child's Music Basket, clicking "Download Now" on a new file will cause all files (including those in their basket) to download immediately.
Although the sound/video clips are shortened samples, when your child downloads their Music Basket, they are purchasing full versions of the songs/videos.
Check out and download files
If your child hasn't logged in when they click "Download," they will be prompted to do so. As soon as your child is logged in, they are able to download the files. Once your child has downloaded their chosen files, a confirmation will show how much money they have left in their allowance.
Download Instructions: You'll find download instructions on the download page, but we'll include them here for your convenience, as well.
IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS DOWNLOADING: Every time your child downloads files from K8 KidTunes, you will receive an e-mail confirmation with a link to the file(s). Thus, should your child encounter problems during the downloading process, you have a way of retrieving those files that they have already purchased. If there is a problem downloading, please use the link in the e-mail right away: It expires after 72 hours. Be sure your e-mail address is correct, or you won't receive this helpful e-mail. Check it and, if necessary, correct it on the Edit Information page.
