There is nothing like hearing children playing music with toys, instruments and song. “Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education”-Plato
No matter what age, the sounds of music enrich a child’s life. Children that play musical instruments have better cognitive abilities, heightened sensory perception and better artistic skills. It is also a great hobby that can provide a lifetime of relaxation and enjoyment. UCLA researchers report that music “trains” the brain for higher forms of thinking. Music says the research team, “excites the inherent brain patterns” Newsweek 2/19/96. With all this said about music, we have attempted to offer a wonderful assortment of musical toys that will delight and inspire.
It is so important to play with musical instruments that play easily, or of good quality have good tone and longevity. Children can begin with a simple drum and learn the basics of rhythm and move to much more complicated instruments as their skills grow.
