My nephew had this toy at his birthday party. My then 2 year old daughter couldn't keep her hands off. There are so many options, everyone could play an instrument. Because my daughter enjoys music, we went out and bought the same set.

Now when my older step-kids come over, my daughter passes out instruments to everyone and we have family band night. She LOVES this set. She's had it for six months and we still have all of the instruments intact. Durable, fun and entertaining toy.

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!

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Band in a Box Beginner Band Set with Xylophone and Harmonica:

    We didn't realize the instruments wouldn't be tuned. For example, the xylophone's keys are not in order. They are just random notes, not in a scale.

    That makes this a really poor toy for people who would like children to learn something about music.

    It's only useful as a noise maker. A shame from a toy company I had trusted to make good quality toys. As a Kindergarten teacher and mother, I would not recommend this toy.

              I was very excited to receive this for my daughter, we have wanted one for a long time. I'm EXTREMELY disappointed. The kazoo doesn't work, the xylophone barely makes sound, and the harmonica is cheap and poorly made. The only items that works are the jingle stick and castanets

                    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!
