I love finding stores and sites that sell fun, new, orginal toys that you might not find anywhere else. I was so thrilled to discover Imagine Toys and get to review their Blue Circus Time wooden music set:
Our boys love to make music (and noise,) so this set was perfect for them. The set comes with a xylophone and two wooden hammer sticks to play it that slide nicely underneath the xylophone when not in use. The set also contains two castanets and two sleigh bells. Both of the boys really enjoyed this set, especially the sleigh bells. ("Jingle Bells" in July, anyone??)
The xylophone keys are marked with the corresponding note, which is pretty cool and will be useful for teaching music:
I really like that the instruments have a great sound without being too loud. These musical instruments are definitely noisy toys that don't get annoying!
I do want to point out that the box advised that children under 3 not play with the set, because of parts that might be too small. I felt confident in giving them to Baby D to play with them, but I will have to watch him closely to make sure he doesn't chew on anything, like many other toys we own:
I couldn't be more pleased with this music set. It contains different musical instruments and the pieces are durable, along with being cute! You can purchase this set on the Imagine Toys website for $18.95. Make sure to visit Imagine Toys and see all of the fun toys for different ages that encourage kids to use their IMAGINATIONS!
