Amazon.ca Product Description
This colorful xylophone is a child's ideal first introduction to music! With mallets in hand, children can explore simple music concepts through creative play, becoming familiar with an octave, intervals, and rhythms. Over time, this little caterpillar will help children develop an appreciation for sound and music! The nifty wooden mallets store neatly in the xylophone itself to look like the caterpillar's antennae.
Our caterpillar xylophone musical toy can be used with parents and older children with multiple entertaining and educational ways to play. Parents can ask the child to play all of the notes in order and tell them which are higher or ask the child to read the letters at the bottom of each key (C, D, E, F, G, A, B, and C). They can also explain that these are the notes of a scale (specifically, C major). The Melissa amp; Doug Caterpillar Xylophone is an exceptional gift for kids 3 to 6 years of age. Add the Melissa amp; Doug Wooden Beginner Recorder to round out the hands-on, screen-free play experience.
