¿Dónde Jugarán los Niños? (English: Where Will the Children Play?) is the second studio album (fifth overall) released by Mexican rock band Maná released in 1992. This album contained many of the hits that catapulted them to international fame and established them as one of the leading Latin rock acts of the 1990s, including "Oye Mi Amor", "¿Dónde Jugarán los Niños?", "Vivir Sin Aire", "Te Llore Un Río", "Cómo te deseo" and "De pies a cabeza". The album has reached #4 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums Chart. Ulises Calleros (the band's former electric guitarist) was replaced by César "Vampiro" López. The band re-released this album with bonus remixes on February 15, 1994. Singer Mijares covered "Vivir sin Aire" in his 2009 Spanish album Vivir Así. "Oye Mi Amor" is one of the international songs included in the rhythm video game Rock Band 3.
