Strike up the band and spark a lifelong love of music with this unique wooden set of hand-crafted 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. Band-in-a-box is a great introduction to musical instruments and helps teach children listening skills, auditory discrimination, and fine motor skills. 3.3 lbs.
