At Putumayo Kids’ Toy Fair booth yesterday, manager Alexi Brennan showed off “a really fun new title for kids and parents” in American Playground.

The latest entry in the line’s series of fun songs based on country of origin or theme (joining the likes of Brazilian Playground and Cowboy Playground), it includes such tunes as “You Are My Sunshine,” (performed by Buck Howdy) and “She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain” (Johnny Bregar).

“They’re classic American songs that the whole family can sing,” said Brennan, also holding up the seventh in Putumayo Kids' Dreamland series, Latin Dreamland.

“It’s soothing and relaxing, like the rest in the series,” she said, noting, incidentally, that it's not just for kids.

“I’ve had accounts use some of the titles for 'wine nights'!” Brennan revealed.

And forthcoming from Putumayo Kids, which is the children’s line of Putumayo World Music, is America Coloring Book, the fourth in the series of world culture coloring book titles, following Europe Coloring Book, Latin America Coloring Book and Africa Coloring Book.
