The best birthday we attended was a Rainbow Birthday - with everything from the invitations, food, treats, party favors and birthday cake in the colors of the Rainbow. Having the Putumayo Kids CDs would ensure many "favorite" birthdays to come!

Best kids party is the kind at home with games and home-made cake. Simple but they still have fun!

Great article-- I had no idea that other languages besides Spanish were part of Putumayo's CDs! Thanks for putting together this great contest.

The best kids' party I ever attended was a birthday party at the Bronx Zoo. It helps that it was my birthday!

The best party we ever created was a summer olympic games for our daughter. We had a variety of kid appropriate games--spoon races, ring toss, water slide (best length), whiffleball home-run derby, soccer goal, etc. Then we had an all Whole-Foods lunch, including Whole Foods cake and ice cream. Prizes for all the events included Whole Foods gift certificates, organic snacks, and home-made ribbons. Very fun! Favorite Putumayo CD is Hawaiian Playground. We used it at the party along with World Playground #1 and #2!

My sister threw her six-year-old daughter a birthday tea party filled with fancy hats, finger sandwiches and bite-sized desserts. She and her friends had so much fun being posh!

My 3 1/2 and 5 year old daughters love to dance. We are always on the look out for new music that they like and that doesn't drive my husband and I crazy! This sounds like a terrific set!! Thanks!

I love Putomayo Kids CDs. My favourite is filled with wonderful Jazz for kids including a New Orleans fav Ingrid Lucia singing "this little light of mine". My son grew up in New Orleans with Jazzm Big Band and Funk music all around him at school, in the streets and at home. My son had a great birthday party at age 5 where several local musician friends did a "funk" version of Happy Birthday song for him and everyone was dressed as musicians across the 20th century from Zoot suits to 70s flares and brought instruments to the party to jam. Zeb is 21 now, but would love these CDs for his 4yr old sister Sophia!

My favorite birthday party as a little girl was one in which my father, a talented artist and poet, was the special guest star. He set up an easel in front of his audience (my little friends) and drew fabulous cartoon characters for us as he recited his funny and entertaining children's poems, each one starring one of the characters he drew. I felt so lucky that he was my dad.

Music draws kids like nothing else. One of the best birthday parties my son has attended and enjoyed is one at which the hostess organized a music class for all the little kids.

Best kids party I ever attended? I guess I always loved my own as a kid because I liked being the center of attention. ;-)

My kids and I love Putumayo cds! We started with World Lullabies (Thula Mama is a favorite) and now we love to make a dinner theme with the music from different countries. So far we've only owned a couple and the rest are borrowed from the library. Would adore the collection!

The best party was one where the kids got to decorate their own cupcakes with organic, yummy food treats..There was a well known kid's music group whose theme is the environment. So, not only did everyone hear some great music, there were some important things to be learned. We made musical instruments from natural resources: all of which would be perfect to play with Putumayo's new CD for kids. I had a children's store for years & we sold Putumayo CDs like "hotcakes". Thanks for all the great sounds for adults & kids, alike. Cheers, Janis

A very fun princess party for a very sweet now 6 year old last weekend. I have to say it was the best party ever, the only thing that could have maybe pushed it over the top would have been some fun music.

I have bought and loved Putmayo CDs for years and can highly recommend everything I have heard. great for adults and children who value other cultures.

I think my 2nd grade class would really enjoy these cds. I would use the songs in Social Studies and Music to show how different cultures enjoy music. It would be fun too.

My son's "despedida" (farewell party) from his orphanage in the Philippines last year when he was 13 months old. All of his caregivers told him how much they loved him and blessed us as a family. Tears through the whole amazing thing!

We LOVE Putumayo music, we check them out from the library, but we only own a few, it would be awesome to win so many! Thanks!

The very best kids' party we ever had was when a group of my ESL University students from Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia joined us and taught the kids songs and dances from their countries... the kids came in international costumes, we ate foods from 5 continents and we all had the time of our lives... Now that I am a grandmother, I would love to teach world songs and dances to my amazing grandchildren... Our goal is for them to be bilingual or trilingual and appreciate the cultures of the world. Putamayo Kids World Party would help us do that and spread it to their friends at our parties.
