Best party was a bike parade party for 5 year old. All of his friends brought their bikes over and we decorated the bikes, had races, obstacle courses, and lots of prizes.

A simple gathering of a couple of my daughter's close friends was perfect for our two-year-old's birthday party. Nothing fancy or over-the-top, just some play-doh to smoosh and trikes to ride. They all had a great time. (And we actually had a Putumayo Kids cd playing as background music!)

We've had many house parties for our kids birthdays. Playing old fashioned games is the best! They play drop the clothes pins in the jar, pin the tail on the donkey, musical chairs, and sometimes we get a pinata. Everyone goes home with a prize.

We just threw my daughter a princess party. We turned our entire garage into a castle. We used huge boxes to paint towers and put princess faces in the windows. We bought a ballroom backdrop to cover the walls, hung silver and blue tablecloth covers from the ceiling, and got huge cutouts of the princesses. The girls decorated crowns with jewels, ate royal sandwiches and my mom made an amazing castle cake, complete with a moat, flags and even a frog prince!

Have been checking out CDs for the group since a previous giveaway and we love the music. Would love to add the set to our personal collection. When my youngest turned 5 last year, I planned a party at the park - weather in Mesa was great for March - a host of 5 yr olds - good food - simply/frugal games -wear them out and let them go home to nap!! Fun for all. You can't miss with water balloons!!

We had a spy party for my son last year, complete with all types of spy music and training activities. The kids loved it!

Putumayo's music brings out the kid in all of us, bouncing to the beats, rockin' to the rhythm. Opening up the world to our kids through music is good as it gets in creating understanding and appreciation of our global neighbors. Keep it up!

I have heard some of the Putumayo CDs and the music is just great. The music teacher in my son's school has several of their CDs and the the kids love it. I was planning to get one of the CDs for ourselves for whenever we have a children's party. Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful collection!

We had a mad scientist party where we made oceans in a bottle(with vegetable oil, water, food coloring, sand, shells and glitter); then we made Ooblek (corn starch and water) which goes from a liquid to a solid to a liquid right before your eyes; then we exploded Diet Cokes with Mentos, and we created a Backdrop Theatre where 2 big people turned into one tiny person! We made a video of the whole party and sent it to each of our 6-year-old guests...

The best parties are simple and filled with friends and family. DS loves to have cupcakes, juice (a true treat for him), and lots of friends to play with. Would love to win this, as these are some of our favorite cds to play all day long.

Music taps into emotions and feelings in a way the written word could never do on it's own. Music from different countries exposes children to different shades and blends of emotions and ways of experiencing and enjoying rhythms distinct from those already known and enjoyed in their own culture. I feel it enriches and broadens their horizons, and experiences in a unique and very important way.

My husband and I have a family owned party rental business, so this summer we decided we wanted to celebrate both our kids together with a huge Carnival and have all their friends over, we didi it at our local park with tons of healthy food and we brought the rock wall, bouncer, slides, obstacle courses, a juggler and a spin art station, it was so much fun!, I'm hoping my kids will remember how much fun they had for years and years to come. Thanks for the opportunity to win the CDs, I love the series!

In 2002, I went from being a happy-go-lucky girl into instant motherhood. Once the wheels of adoption through the county system get going, they can move forward pretty quick. Our family had been through a recent tragedy so our new toddler brought joy to my entire extended family. When I looked at my daughter's birthdate I realized it was just a week from my older sister's. So for her first birthday party in her new family, I packed our pags and flew off from Denver to the California Bay Area to celebrate with my sister. My other sister happens to live there too. Life long friends came from everywhere to welcome little Calise to our family. We made lots of food, danced, sang and celebrated with the people who mean the most. It was the best party ever, and a great way to welcome my new baby... who is now 10!

Love, love, love Putumayo cds. My kids know so many of the songs from around the world because we're able to share them through the collections Putumayo has created! Can't wait to see the new release.
