I have a niece and nephew turning 2 in September. They are the sweetest, smartest kids in the world! They love to sing and play instruments...first song they started to 'dance and sing' to was La Cucaracha with the maracas at 1 lol They would put thses CD's to good use for sure...and think their Auntie is way cool :-)

The best kids' party I ever attended? It's a toss-up. On the one hand, I loved my friend's son's elaborate pirate party. She did a budget-conscious Martha Stewart and had her husband making balloon pirate swords (which he learned how to do on YouTube). There were two homemade cardboard cutouts of pirate ships which two teams of party-goers hid behind to throw balled up newspapers (cannonballs) at each other. There was a treasure hunt with clues and prizes at each stop. Great homemade party. On the other hand . . . with all the brouhaha that can come with kid parties (extravagant in financial backing and/or parental time and exhaustion to make it homemade), one of my friends goes old-school. Backyard parties, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, musical chairs, pinata. Prizes for one child who wins each game (scandalous!) and opening gifts during the party (what?!?!?) One year, there weren't even goodie bags (aka, landfill bags). The kids seem just as happy, and since it's so rare to attend those kinds of parties, it's refreshing.

Knight and princess party. My son made a large three sided cardboard castle with functioning drawbridge and he helped with a homemade castle fortress shaped pinata. Goody bags were handmade knight's saddle bags for the boys and pink frilly princess bags for the girls. The kids decorated crowns and tiaras we made.

The best parties we have had for our nearly four year old daughter involve everything fun for kids. Music, bubbles, sand, water, healthy snacks, slides, climbing, jumping, hula hooping, crawling, tossing, catching, swinging, running, pedaling, bouncing and some times swimming too. Any kind of kid oriented games along with prizes and goody bags and sometimes balloons. It would be so awesome to include these cds to our music selection!

We love to throw kids parties at the park so that the kids can run and play and just enjoy themselves.

I am a music teacher, so the best party I created was filled with a table for making instruments out of household items which doubled as party favors, another table had ethnic instruments to expose the children to different sounds from other countries and of course, singing childhood songs as well as songs in different languages.

The most creative party I've done was my daughter's 3rd bday. She chose Little Einsteins as her "theme", but I created our own games and stories in their style. Since I am a violinist, I played all the little classical and folk tunes for the kids "live" as we played. All the kids then had an opportunity to try a violin with my help, which most of them had never done and they loved it! We are huge appreciators of music in our house and my daughter would LOVE to have Putumayo CDs! She asks for them every time we visit Whole Foods!

My favorite birthday party from my childhood, roundabouts age 9: paint homemade wooden hockey sticks, then play lime hockey (i.e. hockey with limes) around the yard, and finish up with decorate-your-own cupcakes and dancing.

birthday parties are always great, but i would have to say that a friend's child's party we attended at a local park was great- food for snacking for parents and kids, playground nearby and free carousel rides, and a great fresh DIY cake of pre-made vanilla cupcakes, whipped cream and fresh raspberries!

A very low key 2 year party for my niece. It was a mickey mouse theme, but without all of the commercial stuff. The only thing commercial was the banner that we borrowed.

I would like to win the CD because my grandchildren have birthdays in the next few months. The CD would provide the theme for their birthdays.

My kids are in high school now and still remember the simple dress parties, dancing in the garden, playing musical chairs. We made puzzles out of trays of brownies. Would love to share your music with my younger nieces and nephews.

I haven't been to any such parties since I was a kid myself! However I am a new parent and will need to be creative in the not too distant future. Given our daughter's very mixed cultural and lingual background we would love to win these CDs.

The best kids party I ever attended was for my nephew....there were tons of games for the kids with prizes for all, a facepainter, a caricature artist drawing each of the kids a pic of themselves to take home, musical entertainment by a group of kids, and the food was amazing! Everyone had an amazing time!

the best kids party? probably the spring party where we celebrate everything coming back to life, and the kids plant seeds and play outside.

We had a music party for my son's 3rd birthday where one of his Mo Music instructors lead everyone in song and dance.

Best kids party we ever created was my son's 7th. It was a father-son party at the Pawsox. We bought 25 tickets and gave them early (so no worries about transportation). We even put our rain date down on invitation with tickets just in case. Goodie bags were included in the package. All had an amazing time. And then came back for cake and icecream

I love introducing new music to my girls that we all can listen to and shows us the diversity of music. We own a couple of the CD's but would love to hear more.
