The best kids party we have been to/thrown was actually my son's 4th birthday party. We had Eric Energy perform, and not only did he totally engage a room full of 3 and 4 year olds, he taught them a thing or two about science and the world around them. Now that's my kind of party, and something that I can feel good about.

The best kids' party I ever threw was a Princess Party to raise money for the Ellie Fund - a breast cancer non-profit that provides childcare, transportation, housekeeping, groceries and prepared/delivered meals free of charge for three months to hundreds of breast cancer patients and families across Massachusetts. Boston Sports Club donated the space, volunteers provided nailpainting (non toxic polish from Piggy Paints), facepainting and crafts, photobooth by Opensade studios, a beautiful signing princess, performance by Friends of Broadway, and healthy snacks generously provided by Whole Foods. It was a wonderful team effort. (And we raised $5,000 to directly benefit local families!)

Putumayo music collections are a fantastic way of introducing kids to a variety of music; I truly haven't come across anything else that comes close. We put together a "construction" party for my then 4-year old - black table cloths were decorated with yellow tape with street divider signs and orange cones; obstacle course included running with a wheelbarrow full of (paper) bricks; and the birthday boy had to break through a (paper) brick wall with a construction wrecking ball to "rescue" his cake. It was a blast, and we still - 3 years later - get great comments about the party.

I'm 60+ and this sounds like a CD set I would like to enjoy! I guess some of us haven't grown up yet.

What amazes me is how quickly kids relate the other cultural sounds and groove to it without pause.

The best kid's party I attended was one where there where lots of adults and kids, with great food, good music, lots of outdoor activities, games and great conversation for the adults. No theme - just great people and well behaved children who still had fun.

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.
