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.

The tamborine center material ripped after one day. Some of the items can be a safety issue for the younger ones. So I had a put a couple of toys in the toy box for a couple of years. The whole family can make music together. We enjoy them.

Noise makers, not instruments

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

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.

            My kids received this for Christmas for my aunt and it's almost been a year and they still love it. Great quality pieces that actually make sounds! Only thing that I had to repair was a new string for the triangle. Like all Melissa and Doug products, you are getting what you pay for and this is worth the extra $ compared to plastic music box sets.

            Learning thru music is a great way to increase a lot of learning abilities as well as movement. These instruments are made strong enough for my classroom use for children ages 1-12. They are GREAT

              My husband and I gave this to our almost 4 year old as an early birthday gift. To say he loves it is an understatement. He has had the band in the box for 4 days and has been making music ever since. The only reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because the plastic cover that came on the tambourine came off within the 1st 24 hours. I just removed the plastic part and it still works fine.

              I love Melissa & Doug and now expect the best from them...this product, however did not quite meet their normal standards....

              the maracas were very muffled/quiet & really not even usable. The tamborine cover broke within a few uses...the triangle is authentic but the striking stick was definately not for kids under 3, since my 2 year old tried putting it in his mouth (scary!). We're still not sure how to use the pair of sticks (you are s'psed to rub one against the other's texture) but it is not very effective.

              On the plus side, the cymbals and the clapper are my boys' favorites and work great.

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

                I got this set for my son for his 2nd birthday after a year of him using anything and everything in the house as an instrument of some kind.
                The instruments are very durable, have nice, soft sounds, and are easy for little hands to hold. Really, the only issues we've run in to is that at 2 my son is too little to really get the triangle, and he is convinced that the tambourine is a drum and that the stick for the triangle a drum stick. His whacks ended up denting the surface of the tambourine. Now that the triangle is put away for another year or so, the rhythm sticks are making wonderful drumsticks with no further damage to the tambourine.
                This set is wonderful for toddlers and preschoolers. Every kid in the neighborhood (ages 2-7) ask to play with the set and do so very enthusiastically.
