Product Description

What a Value! Whopping 10 piece set is chock-full of favorites guaranteed to bring hours of musical joy, all conveniently packed in a sturdy wooden storage case!

This toy has also been evaluated by National Lekotek Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world accessible to children of all abilities. Lekotek offers the following additional information:

Whether it's a one-man band or small group performance, this instrument set lets children play independently, or together with friends to encourage parallel play or more advanced social interaction! Reinforce bilateral coordination by promoting two-fisted play with the maracas, cymbals, triangle and rhythm sticks. Mix it up even more by giving each hand a different role to play. Children can also use both hands simultaneously or reciprocally, and work on crossing the center of their bodies to establish a dominant side while facilitating the development of perceptual and organizational skills.

Features

  • Made of wood and metal
  • Contains 10 musical instruments
  • Sturdy wooden storage box holds all pieces
  • Encourages music appreciation and ability

My twins have been playing with this music set (and the other, larger one that includes a xylophone and recorder) for nearly eight months now. They play with it every single day. They're not easy on anything, and this band set has stood up to their abuse marvelously. Unlike other reviewers, nothing in our set is broken. In fact, everything could pass for almost new! This is a favorite toy, and comes with us on trips because they never get bored with it. They absolutely love this toy.

I like it so much I told a friend of mine about it and she bought one for her daughter as well.

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.

Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Band in a Box 10-Piece Set:

I value music time as much as reading time for my baby, and every day we sing and read. I wanted to get her some instruments to play. I guess I had pictures these toys smaller, as I bought this for my five month old thinking she's easily be able to hold them, but they're actually sized for little kid hands. While they're heavy and some are pretty big next to her little frame, she can pick most of them up. We still have fun shaking and tapping all of the instruments, with supervision. It's a quality wooden set, so I know she will grow into it.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Band in a Box 10-Piece Set:

    I bought these instruments for a k-1st grade class. They loved the instruments and had a lot of fun exchanging them after the first song. We played along with some songs that had a strong beat and they loved and it sounded good. A good purchase for a good price.

        Sent as Easter present for my Granddaughter. Her parents understand how important "making noise" is to her development and love playing instruments with her. This is a whole little band in a box. Love the Melissa and Doug toys!!

        beginner band set

        By Lori

        from Cary, NC

        Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Band in a Box 10-Piece Set:

        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 Deluxe Band in a Box 10-Piece Set:

        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.
