As a music teacher & band director in a district facing mega cuts and budget issues, this would be an awesome resource for my classroom!

My 8 year old boy loves music - he plays piano, enjoys singing and dancing. Would be nice to introduce him to the music that kids in the other countries enjoy.

Hello - thank you for this giveaway! I have five children, and I know we would enjoy this set! The best kids' party I have been to was an 'old fashioned fun' party that we held here at our house for a kids' birthday party - sack races, pinthetailonthedonkey, make homemade ice cream, three-legged race, limbo, hide and seek... it was great fun!

My 7-year-old daughter invited 10 of her friends to a Rock Gym for some adventurous fun climbing in an indoor climbing gym.

My grandchildren LOVE to sing and dance and are eager to learn new words in foreign languages. This CD set would be such a treasure for them to experience and enjoy for many years!!! I'd love to surprise them with music they will "learn" so much from! What a great project!

We've had many "theme" parties, from Star Wars to Harry Potter, but still one of my favorites was my son's first birthday. We had a few friends joining us with their young ones, all too little to do much of anything. So, we found a good stretch of wall, taped a big white paper to it, threw down some old sheets, stripped the kids down to their diapers and put out a bunch of finger paints and oh boy, it was lovely. They had a great time, and the parents enjoyed it just as much. At the end, they all had a finger paint hand print momento to take home.

Growing up, every year I planned my own birthday parties, each with a theme. My favorite part was putting a tweak on "pin the tail on the donkey" to go along with the theme. So for smiley face theme, it was "pin the smiley on the smiley face" and for treasure troll theme it was "pin the treasure on the troll." And I still love planning parties!

It will sson be my grandson's fifth birthday. Although, I am ancient we love to dance and sing to jazz, Irish, flamenco and hip hop. This means maybe, just one track off many CDs. This leaves behind a carpet of CDs It would be great to have CDs with great music which we could play from beginning to end - and all 14 of them!

I work at an art school that creates fabulous kids camps relating to cultures around the world. This would make a great addition to our camps!

We live in the south and both of my children have summer birthdays, so our parties always involve large inflatable water slides to keep the kids cool outside. Good background is a must for any party though, and we would love this CD set!

A local indoor soccer arena has kids parties. The kids run around having fun, burning off energy, and then get pizza, cake and ice cream in a function room. All the kids seem to have a great time!

Passing out crepe paper streamers and fabric remnants to the kids. Turning on the Brazilian Putumayo CD and letting the kids dance until they were tired! It was beautiful to watch.

I've thrown several parties for my daugther: 4th bday - "Horse theme" held at a park, every child adopted a racehorse name as they entered the picnic shelter (we got a Horse Xing sign) and made themselves "racing silks out of felt with stickers and fabric markers. We set up an obstacle course which was the steeplechase and then had a horse pinata and pasture cupcakes with green sprinkles and horses on top. 5th bday - archaeology party - the kids arrived and were greeted as visiting experts. Each was given goggles and paint brushes and instructed to join the "dig" in the sandbox. Dino eggs and My Little Pony paint-your-own figurines were buried in the sand. The kids got to keep what they found, plus the goggles and paint brushes for their own archaeology kit. Kids got to decorate their own cupcakes. We always get fruit platters and or fruit from Whole Foods to serve at the parties. For all her parties we ask folks to not bring gifts, but rather bring food that we donate to the local food bank. This year we collected 166 pounds!

This is happy, bright and uplifting music .... Never mind the little kids - this is great music for us big kids as well! Putumayo does it AGAIN! We don't have children ourselves, but recognize what a huge responsibility is it to raise children in this modern age so we host an annual Mother's Day event for all of our friends with small children on the Saturday before Mother's Day. Let's face it; Mother's Day is not long enough for all the work and sacrifice that Moms do. The kids spend the afternoon playing in a swimming pool full of toys and games, eat healthy snacks and the dads have the responsibility to watch over them. There is a blanket spread under the oak tree with piles of storybooks, coloring books and crafts for quiet time. Meanwhile, the mothers are pampered to bits and not allowed to lift a finger. Kids are fed their own menu late in the afternoon and then head to our family room to watch movies, play board games and wind down after a busy afternoon. Meanwhile, the parents are presented with a gourmet dinner feast. We cannot show such appreciation to our own mother's any longer, so bestow this gift on our mom-friends instead. Everyone goes home and has their own family Mother's Day celebration the following morning. Cheers to mothers everywhere.
