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!

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.

beginner band set

By Lori

from Cary, NC

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

I bought this set for my 2 year old. The harmonica, jingle stick, and the castanets were a hit. However, the xylophone and the kazoo were a huge disappointment. No sound will come out of the kazoo. As for the xylophone, the only time we can really hear different musical notes is if we run the wooden mallet quickly across all of the bars at one time. If we simply hit each bar separately, the sounds are very close and not at all entertaining for our little one.

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

It is a great beginner set with tons of learning to be had. The quality is not amazing which is why I only gave it 3 stars.It is great that it comes on a wooden tray that you can take out, your child can paint and use to play with Melissa and Doug play food.

    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.
