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.

Sponsored a local musician to lead a drum circle at our local library. It was a hit!

My kids are still little, so we have not had to do anything creative yet. The biggest hit is having the party at the local farm with hayrides and/or pony rides. The farm animal theme is easy to make games up as well.

made my son a flubber style cake but, ended up looking like a lab from flubber. we lived in bkk at the time and so, we had a thai mugician and lady helpers and then we had a bouncy which was a maricle we got one. it was a international girl that brought one from her aulsralia and rented it out to internationals while she lived there. so, much fun. the house was decorated and gift bags where given and we had so much fun and all the thia kids had so much fun they had never experienced that before.

We love Putumayo in our house! The best kids' party I've ever been to was a summer party with a giant water slide and lots of yummy summer fruits and vegetables.

My favorite parties are simple. Kids running around the backyard on a shady summer afternoon, playing tag or imagination games, with balls or sprinklers. Family and good friends, good food on the grill, some great music. Roasting marshmallows over a bonfire while it gets dark and chasing fireflys. I think these CD's would fit our summer neighborhood parties perfectly!

Putumayo's music is something we can all enjoy on car trips without anyone threatening to throw themselves from the car. I'm pretty sure Barney the Dinosaur can't make the same claim.
