Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful! The "instruments" in this collection cannot claim to be offer more than a tiny "click" sound! The cymbals are barely audible, the tambourine can make a tiny bit of noise if an adult shakes it really hard, the maracas are barely audible and the clapper is so stiff that I can barely make a sound with it unless I hit it against my other hand. This is really disappointing! (the triangle is okay - and the string coming off is par for the triangle course.) You would be better off going to your local music store and getting the instruments individually. You would get better quality and it would not cost much more than this set. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this band in a box for my granddaughter, It quickly became her favorite toy. It gives me a chance to connect with her in a wonderful and creative way. I also see how it encuorages coopertive play. She and her little mates will play the triangel or tambourine for a while and then trade with one another, most of the time in a agreeable way. All of the instruments seem to be pretty equally fun to use, which helpes make sharing less of challange as it can some times be at this age. I really love whatching as well as participating in all the fun and action this engaging and enductional little band in a box has to offer a fairly wide range of ages from two to at lest seven as well as being none gender pacific. I would gladly recommend this delightful toy to a good friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use wood toys for small hands Packages says for ages 3+, I bought it for my 16month old. The noises took some getting used to, but once he got past that stage he had fun. There is no "cover" for the crate it comes in which is the only complaint. We give alternate pieces instead of all at once, he doesn't seem to notice for now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this product. I enjoy purchasing products from Melissa and Doug as the quality is usually high and the toys align with the types of toys powered by imagination, rather than batteries that we want for my 2 year old granddaughter. However, I regretted purchasing the Band in a Box because, as others said, the kazoo didn't work and was made of rough wood. And the other instruments barely made a sound. After a few minutes beating the tamborine with the mariaches, and getting frustrated with the kazoo, my granddaughter lost interest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and worth the price This is great for a child who is always wanting to make music and is very hyper. This catches your childs attention and is fun to sing and dance and play along with the music your creating.. All the instruments are very durable and well worth the price. Nothing cheaply made. The tambourine is plain so if you have a creative child that likes to decorate and personalize their things,like our daughter they can with this instrument. Melissa and Doug must have been thinking about this too.. We will be purchasing more items from here for our daughters birthday in a few months..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unhappy grandma The maracas make almost no sound. If someone is playing another instrument you cannot hear the maracas! The Clapper is also very soft. We were very disappointed when we saw a kazoo in our box. It does not work and it is very rough wood. My grandson plays musical instruments at his music class And was disappointed when it did not have a triangle in his box. As many of your picture show. This product was a big let down on Christmas Day.
