    These instruments are durable and of good quality. I don’t worry about my kids banging on them as hard as they want. They make beautiful music. The kids have so much fun playing with them. They are real instruments, not plastic imitations that don’t sound quite right. This was a purchase I don’t regret.

    Not so durable Band in a Box, July 18, 2003

    This item was purchased for as a Christmas gift. Within the first day the head of the tamborine was destroyed by light to moderate tapping. Not too worried, figured not everything is toddler proofed. But six months later, with minimal use, one of the handles from the maracas came off, beans everywhere. Thankfully my son came to me right away to tell me it had broken. The handle just comes right out of the head, the seal is gone. I’m in the process of tracking down the manufacturer’s website. But if you have little ones, check these handles!!!!

    Big dissapointment…, March 13, 2003

    Our three year old really likes to “make music” and we wanted to get him some quality rhythm intruments. Unfortunately these did not fit the bill.
    The thin paper on the tambourine tore before we even had it all the way out of the box. I don’t see how it could have stood up to even the most gentle use, much less to an enthusiastic child. It is also really small, even compared to other toy tambourines I’ve seen. One of the maracas split open along the seam, though we put the beans back in and it sticks together pretty well. I guess some glue might fix it better, but I’ll be sure to add more beans – the skimpy amount in there just doesn’t make a satisfying “shake”.
    The triangle is very large and looks sturdy, but it sounds awful, not at all like the pleasant sounds of the ones at our child’s preschool. The lengths of the sides are uneven; perhaps that’s why it is out of tune with itself. It’s also pretty heavy for a small child to hold. Let’s see what else… the hollow wooden rhythm stick also broke, during normal use, but it at least lasted about two weeks of occasional use. The clapper stick is still intact but probably because my son hasn’t used it much. The cymbals seem sturdy enough although the screws that hold them together are a bit rusty (they arrived that way) and the brass finish scratches off immediately so they look really beat up.
    The wooden box was not a selling point for us, though I suppose it could be a good storage solution for some families; for us it is easier to put the instruments in a bin or basket, since we have some other instruments, jingle bells etc., that won’t fit in the box.
    So, while I can’t recommend highly enough giving your child rhythm instruments, skip this product and either get find some better quality ones or just get out the wooden spoons and plastic containers from your kitchen – they last longer and are more fun.

    I don’t understand the other reviews here. “My kids scraped the ink off and ate it,” “My baby got bored with these.”

    These aren’t baby rattles. They’re percussion instruments. They’re good percussion instruments that kids can play with, sure. But I’m in a band and was looking for shakers to use at shows. I also teach music to elementary-school aged children, and they’re great for some interactive group lessons for young kids.

    But they’re not a toy for infants and toddlers. Nor do they claim to be.

    I typically use a nicer shaker for recording, but these are easy to throw into a bag, brightly colored so you won’t have to dig around for them, and they sound fine.

    One of the other reviews complained that they’re “sharp” sounding and slow, but it just depends on how you hold them.

    These seem great until my kid discovered that they open! No glue one them whatsoever, they just open up like a plastic easter egg, there were little black balls of god knows what all over the playmat. Good thing I was supervising. #parentsnightmare

    My 20 month old son likes these shaker eggs. He has his favorite color that he plays with the most and it fits perfectly in his little hand. I would recommend this product although don’t expect your child to play with them for an extended period of time. My son picks it up, shakes it, throws it down, and moves on to something else.
