    My mom bought this for my son at 18 months and he LOVES it. The entire set is excellent quality and comes in a nice wooden crate (we use the crate for arts & crafts). My son is now a very accomplished Harmonica & flute player (he’s now only 19 months) – he can’t get enough of these instruments. One thing to look out for though — the tip of the stick that you use for the xlyphone came off and I found my son eating it – it is definitely a choking hazard – I just took the stick away and tossed it in the garbage and he uses one of the other thick wooden sticks to play the xylophone and he hasn’t missed a beat!

    ****UPDATE**** 5/8/08
    It is now almost 3 years later and my son still plays with all of the instruments in this set. Looking back at all the toys we bought or he received as gifts, this is still one of his favorites and has helped foster his interest in music. I STILL highly recommend this set!!

    I bought this for my 4-year old daughter’s birthday because she really wanted a xylophone and this is the only one that I could find! The xylophone is, by far, the worst instrument in the whole set. The notes are way off tune and the sound is muffled.

    Her favorite piece is the harmonica, which is pretty nice. The rest of the instruments are okay, but avoid this product of you are looking for a nice xylophone.

    Talk about bang for your buck! 17 high-quality instruments for only 30 dollars? It doesn’t get much better than this!

    Modern toys are often “noisy”…. they beep, they buzz, they play stupid songs and they provide little educational value. This great instrument set will provide kids with the “noise-making” that they crave, but with the educational value of actually making the noise on real instruments!

    Parents, too, will have a hard time resisting the allure of these super-fun instruments. Your kids will be dingin’ away on the triangle while you shake your thing with the maracas…. it’ll provide interactive and fun play for years! Get some good CDs to accompany this set, while you’re at it. A fun African CD (like Amadou and Mariam’s “Dimanche a Bamako”) will do the trick nicely, as most of these instruments are rhythm instruments that will fit in nicely with that highly rhythmic music.
