Toy Music Instruments
What do Beethoven, Patsy Cline, and Lady Gaga have in common? They all started learning music from a young age. Musical talent is fickle. It's rare that people that haven't learned music before can simply take up an instrument in their forties. Musical instruments for children not only give them the chance to learn a life-long talent but they also help them develop skills for problem-solving, pattern making, and general mathematics. In fact, if you're looking for a fun way to introduce STEM learning toys, instruments are a great way to jump-start mathematic talents!
The featured instruments in this catalog have plenty of features to keep your kiddo interested. No need to put together a drum set and line the neighbor kids up for auditions. The Hape company designs instruments that inspire imaginative, exploratory play.
The 6-in-1 Music Maker is a great example of exploratory play. It will provide your little one with a one-man-band. The guitar-shaped instrument has colorful xylophone tabs, a drum with percussion stick, a guiro that makes a "zit-zit" sound along the neck, a silver bell, and symbols along the head of the instrument. The wooden instrument will provide hours of entertainment as well as an understanding of different textures, rhythm, and sounds. The 6-in-1 toy is great for kids that are just over eighteen months and will provide entertainment for years to come.
Want a starter collection that will be fun for the whole family? The Mini Band toy set will surely be a hit! The ukelele provides an understanding of string instruments while the colorful rainmaker will add visual interest for any kiddos who are too little to strum. The high-quality painted wood kit also includes a tambourine, clapper, and rattle. The water-based paints are safe for toddlers three and up with nylon strings that are gentle on kiddo hands.
Want to give the gift of music learning while making sure little ones don't drive mom and dad up the wall? The pound and tap bench has options. Exchange the xylophone with a ball mallet that little ones can use to work on their hand-eye coordination when quiet time needs to be enforced. As with the rest of Hape's high-quality toys, the base is wooden and finished with water-based paint. The mallet has a plastic head so that if little ones decide to take their rocking moves to the next level, there's no need to worry about them bruising themselves.
Are you ready to fashionable, high-quality instruments to your little-ones toy chest? Hape toys will not only last through hours of fun with one toddler, the wooden base and metal keys will last for years. So one toy can be played by younger siblings and get passed on to future cousins and young friends once your kiddo has moved on to a real ukelele or drum set.
Whether you want to help your child develop musical skills or you're looking for the perfect gift for a niece, nephew, or young family friend, these instruments are all sure to help develop life skills and eye-hand coordination. And most importantly? The toys are sure to spur on plenty of fun!
