To give kids musical instruments and in turn, the gift of music, isn't only teaching them a performance skill, but in time will give them refined motor skills, confidence, ambition, dedication and if they join a band or orchestra, team working skills. Whether they're plucking the strings of a guitar, shaking a tambourine, or beating a xylophone, kids musical instruments are vital to a child's development.
Starting as babies with very basic percussion instruments a child will learn rhythm and how to match together different sounds. Children then move onto different groups of musical instruments learning to play basic nursery rhymes and their favourite songs. Playing children a wide variety of musical genres widens their tastes, knowledge and gives them a firm base to begin understanding different musical styles.
Children's musical instruments are great educational toys that encourage pretend play and creative play. You will find that whilst teaching musical skills kids learn counting, colours and even social skills as children play together. At Babame, and as parents ourselves, we're passionate about children's health and well being. We feel it's important to fill toy boxes with toys that are of a high quality both educationally and structurally and are entertaining to children across the board of ages and abilities.

They will love discovering the new sounds they can create as they shake and bang each instrument.
