My daughters make up the themes for their birthday parties. Last year Carrie (age 5) combined her two favorite things, and we through a big ole' Chinese horse party. There was a horse (pony) for kids to ride. The decorations were red Chinese lanterns. The cake had a horse plus the Chinese symbol for horse on it. For party favors, we gave chopsticks with farm animals on them. Needless to say, the daughter came up with all these ideas! It was memorable.

Exposing American children to music from around the world. Giving them something the average radio station can't give. Now, that is a good thing.

As a teacher in a public school in an urban area, I think anything that helps students to think multiculturally is a wonderful thing. As a MUSIC teacher in a public school in an urban area, I think any music that introduces students to other cultures is a plus. With familiarity comes understanding, and with understanding comes empathy. In fact, I own some of their earlier CDs. Go Putumayo!

We just celebrated my granddaughters 3rd birthday, I cannot believe it. We had decided with the color and of her dress, she had to have a laua party,complete with grass skirts and coconut tops, she had a blast and so we decided to have her pictures also done in the same theme. They came out so cute. Happy Birthday to my darling little girl.

I absolutely LOVE Putumayo's music!!!! I have been a long time fan of the company and share their music with my friends and their children, often buying them as gifts. It is a beautiful way to learn about cultures without travelling. Though you may not always understand all the lyrics, you can concentrate on the sounds of instruments and voices. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates true music!

One of the best kids party we have been to so far was a Tutus and Capes party. The host played kids music throughout the party and had craft stations for the kids to decorate their favor bags then the girls made tutus and the boys made capes. Oh and there was a station where they could get their face painted too. My daughter had a great time. Thanks for the opportunity to try to win the Putamayo CD set - we love them!

World Music is the best! Putumayo's collection of music brings life to even a stay-at-home day!

Best kid's party? In the backyard with friends and family, grooving to the sounds of Putumayo. A Putu fan long before I had a daughter, and now, so glad that even though my 10-year old enjoys the "grown-up" Putamayo CD's, that we have purchased several "kid's" selections which she equally enjoys. AND, I feel good knowing that I can expose her to a wonderful array of global music that wins out on her playlist over the teenage trashy music that some many of her preteen often get sucked into. Keep 'em coming, Putumayo!

Love the Putmayo Kids CDs! Our local library even stockes the ones we don't have. The best child's birthday party I ever threw was at a local farm - DD Ranch in Terrebonne, OR - with a crazy homespun playground that included hay mazes, crazy homemade slides made from irrigation tubing, and even donkeys who ate our directional signage.

My 2.5 year old loves to dance. When I tell him no tv, he starts dancing to indicate that I play music for him instead. I would LOVE to have this for him!

What a fun way to remind children that music is an international language!

I teach Elementary Physical Education, and we use music in our lessons to help motivate students to promote healthy habits. We have an activity based music party once a week where they enjoy dancing, hula hooping, jump ropes, juggling and other active games. With the recent budget cuts our funding is all out of our own pocket. It would be great add this wonderful CD set to our Physical Education Program.

My son had the greatest party for his 1 year old daughter where they played in a bouncy house and a kiddy pool and even though it rained, everyone had a great time because it's about family and friends........... and that is why it was the best party ever.

This CD would be ideal for my 8th Annual Fiesta Party, we have a kids area and pinata for them, they have their own CD player to play their music. How fun would this be.

The best kids party I went to was a BIKE party. Our friends had the festivities at a park that had a paved sidewalk circling it. They set up mini orange cones, a blow-up rainbow arch, a small ramp, and other obstacles for kids (and grown ups) to bike up, around, over, and under. And of course the cake was dirt-bike themed with lots of oreo cookies.

When my daughter was 3 she was facinated with bugs and insects. We threw her a bug birthday party, with everything being bug themed. We had a butterfly bouncer, and hundreds of thousands live ladybugs which we set free in our backyard to care for our garden.
