So who has heard the song The Wheels on the Bus over, and over, and over...you get the picture! We have one, count them ONE children's CD in the car for road trips, granted it's a great CD but i get sick of hearing can you turn on the monkey song again and again. I found this GREAT cultural experience for the car, Putumayo Kids European Playground

Putumayo Kids CDs can stimulate, engage and inspire – giving children an opportunity to express themselves and experience new and exciting cultures with music that will make the whole family tap their feet.
The Putumayo Kids music team chooses songs with child-friendly lyrics and rhythms by both renowned and undiscovered international artists.

An international music selection contributes to the education of future global citizens while holding true to Putumayo’s mission of sharing music that is “guaranteed to make you feel good”.
