About Putumayo Kids

In 1999, Putumayo launched its children’s division, Putumayo Kids, with the ground-breaking release, World Playground, which has become a staple in classrooms and homes around the world. After winning many Parent's Choice, National Parenting and other awards, Putumayo Kids has become known as the leading source of international music for children.


Putumayo Kids now distributes select multicultural books and activity sets from Barefoot, Enchanted Lion and Alex Beard to help children learn about the world. Two collections of kid-friendly greeting cards are also available.

Kids Greeting Cards

As a longtime fan of international folk art and photography, in 2017 Dan Storper, founder of Putumayo World Music, launched a collection of children's greeting cards featuring the artwork of Nicola Heindl.


All children's greeting cards feature a sentiment inside, and each card includes a link for a free song download.
