I need quality music to play around my young kids.

I don't really like most of the Disney tunes -- hakuna matata and such. My kids are young (between 4 and 10), so I'm looking for nice, happy, catchy, well written music that is edifying and uplifting without being sappy or stupid (e.g., Raffi). The best example of what I'm looking for that I can think of is the Sound Of Music soundtrack. It's fun and playful at times, melodic and serious at other times, and always well written and catchy without a hint of cynicism. What other albums meet that standard?
