My daughter loves music, so I'll definitely be checking these out for her. It's so great to expose little ones to other cultures, especially through music. :)

We are whole foods junkies! One of best birthdays was when me my daughter n a friend went to wholefoods loaded up crackers,snacks,and sm cake then threw a tea party! Afterwards went to local pond and had a picnic. This was a simple yet memorable birthday. Peace,luck, and love to all who share such special memories on this page :)

My little girl, Lilianna, loves a cd called "Latin Groove" that I believe is a Putumayo release...she has danced that cd into oblivian. I would love to be able to give her a whole new diverse collection of music that would get her moving like this! Thanks for all the good works@ Deirdre

We had a Christmas party for 3 and 4 year olds last year that included making gingerbread men and putting them in the oven to bask while I told the story with "paper dolls". When the buzzer went off, the gingerbread men were gone! Rnlargedf versions of the little old man, woman, horse, etc. were on the wall and the children found them in sequence and the character "whispered" a message to me that indicated which way we should go. After we found the cookies and ate them, we went back to bounce cotton balls and jingle bells on a flannel bedsheet and sang "Jingle Bells". We had more refreshementws and sang other Chritmas songs together.

I threw my daughter a Harry Potter party...made an enchanted ceiling, had a zillion of those battery powered candles on the table and then converted the living room into the Gryffindor common room. We had a Forbidden Forest scavenger hunt and mother nature provided more than enough fog and ambiance. Girls went to sleep with a fire blazing in the fireplace and all the candles on the mantel. It was magical! LOVE Putumayo...have many of them but only one kids one...need more!!

My 3 1/2 and 5 year old daughters love to dance. We are always on the look out for new music that they like and that doesn't drive my husband and I crazy! This sounds like a terrific set!! Thanks!

I love Putomayo Kids CDs. My favourite is filled with wonderful Jazz for kids including a New Orleans fav Ingrid Lucia singing "this little light of mine". My son grew up in New Orleans with Jazzm Big Band and Funk music all around him at school, in the streets and at home. My son had a great birthday party at age 5 where several local musician friends did a "funk" version of Happy Birthday song for him and everyone was dressed as musicians across the 20th century from Zoot suits to 70s flares and brought instruments to the party to jam. Zeb is 21 now, but would love these CDs for his 4yr old sister Sophia!

The best party we ever hosted was a music-themed party for my younger daughter when she turned 6. We did the limbo, played "pass the parcel" and musical chairs, did activity songs balancing bean bags, played "pin the note on the radio" and made maracas out of toilet paper rolls and dried beans. It was a blast!

We would love this CD set. We have a few Putumayo's and love them all! Best party (so far) was at Monkey Bizness. It's fun for kids and easy for adults!

We just went to a garden party outside with twinkly lights and the 5 year olds planted flowers in flower pots. Then they decorated the flower pots with markers, stickers, etc. They had lots of fun!

Best kids party I attended has to be my cousin's kids party. It was Superhero themed. She went all out making every little detail so special. She created all her own cup cake toppers, bottle labels, and even cut outs the kids could take photos in. EVerything looked straight out of a comic book. There were even handmade capes and masks for every kid there! And not to mention all the grown men that got to play the best dress up ever...they dressed up as super heroes (superman, ironman etc) for the kids amazement. It was truly a special birthday for her twin boys and we had so much fun.

All boys need is an Indoor playground/jungle gym. Pizza and cake were served along with lots of water. The kids were still sweating even though it was totally air conditioned. Fun was had by all! I speak French and would love my kids to learn more from the Putumayo Kids Playground CDs.

I love your CDs and would love to use this set in my classroom to expose my K-2 students to different music from around the world.

I'm very excited by this opportunity. It sounds more multi-cultural and exciting than the music my grandkids listen to.

My favorite party was a Frida Kahlo themed party. The six year old girl helped prepare and get everything ready. She was really proud and it taught the girls some culture while still being very girly and fun. Kids these days need more culture, music, outdoor and less video games!!
