My son (he was 2 then & now 3) got this set & the other music set last Christmas & he is still loves playing with both. I will put on Baby Einsteins Orchestra dvd & he will play his instruments at the same time! This is a very well made product & built to last. Someone that reviewed before me said that some of the stuff didn't work so maybe she got a defective one. 8 months after buying & nothing has broke!

I bought this set in addition to another Melissa and Doug Band in a box set because my 14-month-old loved the first set with the cymbals, triangle, and such. As part of one of her videos, there is a Kazoo, and she got excited every time she saw it. After purchasing this second set, I discovered that the Kazoo is not designed to work, the xylophone is barely functional, and the plastic harmonica requires so much force that even I can barely force a sound. In addition, much of the remainder of the set is duplicates (poor) of items in the first set. There are not many of this brand of toys that are not exceptional, but give this one a miss. I recommend buying the first set with the triangle, the cymbals, tambourine, etc., then supplementing with an inexpensive toy harmonica and kazoo. I have found great ones for less than $5 each. Too bad really, this product really dings the fantastic reputation of most Melissa and Doug toys!

Disappointing

By Grandma

from Tulsa

Comments about Melissa & Doug Band-in-a-Box Hum! Jangle! Shake! - 7-Piece Musical Instrument Set:

This was a very disappointing toy set. The harmonica is awful, the xylophone was worse. The only thing that works is the castanets.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Band-in-a-Box Hum! Jangle! Shake! - 7-Piece Musical Instrument Set:

    Love Melissa & Doug products in general for their design and durability. Remind me of toys from my day. My grand daughter loved playing w an old harmonica at her great aunts house. When I saw the whole band I had to get it for her and she loves it. Will sit n play or march around and play with it for hours. Of course you have to join the band.

    Disappointing. Save your money.

    By MM

    from San Francisco

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Band-in-a-Box Hum! Jangle! Shake! - 7-Piece Musical Instrument Set:

    For the price, it's not fair to expect concert quality instruments, but it is perfectly fair to expect the items to do what they're supposed to do on a basic level. The xylophone and the harmonica don't work. It's hard to elaborate without demonstrating, but the sound from the bars on the xylophone were blunted (had no sustain) or flat out had the wrong pitch (even the plastic Playskool models can accomplish acceptably accurate pitch) and the harmonica sounded as if it had been thrown against a wall and had the reeds knocked out of alignment, making it sound detuned. Manufacturing these instruments can be done in cost effective ways while still retaining good outcomes with sound quality. Durability might be another story, but they're not supposed to be family heirlooms at this price (which is fine). Still, it's fair to expect that they do what they were designed to do.

    No word from the company after writing, so I guess this will just end up in the landfill. Save your money, though. You can get separate pieces that will actually work for pretty cheap and you won't be driven crazy by the dissonant noises your child makes even when using the pieces correctly.

    Mostly Awesome

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Band-in-a-Box Hum! Jangle! Shake! - 7-Piece Musical Instrument Set:

    We got this for my daughter's birthday. We picked this specifically due to her love of all things musical.

    Within an hour we threw away the harmonica (cheap plastic harmonica that blew so horribly out of tune and high pitched at that!) and the kazoo (there wasn't any way to actually get air through it or anything inside of it to create the classic, kazoo sound!).

    That being said, we love the box it came in. 2 years later and that is still what we store them in. All of the other instruments play nicely and have held up through 2 years of play and a cross country move. If you want a kazoo or harmonica, look elsewhere, otherwise this box is for you!

    Great little noise makers. If your a real musician these items are not tuned correctly. However it is a fun way to get kids engaged in music and to enjoy it.
