American artist Jay Mankita’s opening song “Eat Like a Rainbow” sets the tone for the album, and the delectable songs that follow from Australia, Cuba, Denmark, France, Germany, Canada and Trinidad add to the exuberant musical smörgåsbord.

These fun, upbeat songs will help get kids moving and dancing to the rhythms. The artists on Picnic Playground sing so joyously about delicious food that you can almost taste it.

European Playground is a collection of 15 songs that takes families on a fun-filled cross-genre musical tour around the continent. Europe is a favorite destination for travelers who marvel at the continent’s rich cultural variety.

Europe is home to almost 50 countries, each with its own unique culture, history, traditions, food and music.

European Playground features a lively and engaging selection of family-friendly music from contemporary artists from these very diverse regions. The multilingual songs are easy to sing and dance along to, no matter what language you speak.

    Guacamole turned out to be the hardest one for me. It took me almost until the last moment to figure that one out!

    I missed this post so was surprised to see CD’s in my mailbox. My 2 and 4 year old love them! My son was more interested in my reading the blurbs about each country in the European liner notes, but the songs are all great. Thanks!
