Strike up the band and spark a lifelong love of music with this unique wooden Band-in-a-Box set of hand-crafted wooden instruments. Sturdy wood materials stand up to lots of joyful noise-making, and also produce wonderfully satisfying sounds. Strike the energy chimes with a mallet, toot the train whistle, strike or rub together the rhythm sticks, rattle the cymbals on the jingle stick, and use the mallet to play the circle drum. All instruments store in the convenient wooden box. Band-in-a-box is a great introduction to musical instruments, and helps teach children listening skills, auditory discrimination, and fine motor skills. Gender: unisex.
