What I love about this product:

  • It is perfect for kids 3 years + up {yup, my little one needs supervision whilst playing, but I don’t mind, I drum away with him while he does :D}
  • I love the size of each instrument which is just perfect for my son’s chubby little digits :)
  • Every instrument is made of wood + very durable that I know it will survive a couple of bangs + throws by the little man. I am expecting this toy will be around longer that most of the toys in my son’s toy bin.
  • The drum head is made from natural rawhide + it does make a very interesting + beautiful sound that got the little man, + probably the neighbors, interested
  • It conforms to international standards, including ASTM F 963-03 that I am certain it is safe to give to my little one to play with
  • It even comes with this parent-friendly activity guide that includes helpful suggestions + ideas on how to play with the set, encouraging the entire family to join in + promoting fun, bonding activity + learning {for the kiddos}

Shake, Rattle + Drums is a part of Sounds Like Fun music maker toys which are a “unique collection of of exploratory instruments designed to introduce young children to the benefits and joys of music making.” They are distributed by West Music, along with a host of other classroom instruments and an assortment of classroom music games.

Did you know that children who enjoy music at an early age are more likely to do better in school in the future? This is because music contributes to what the experts call a “rich sensory environment” that forge more pathways between the cells in your child’s brain. Thus, helping him develop his ability to learn in most areas, like reading + math. Music is not only a good learning tool for our children, it also helps them express themselves + develop their self-confidence.

So for this Christmas, give the gift of music + learning to our little ones :)
