William’s Godmother, Kristi, and I chat on Facebook a lot about him. One thing we discussed at length was music and how I to raise our son as someone who enjoys playing an instrument like her son, Tyler does (he plays drums and guitar). I had told her how hard it was to not buy him a drum set as so far I’d only seen ones for older kids. Two days later this Hand Drum Piano arrived from her and Tyler.
Inside were actual two separate toys allowing a child to play on an instrument with drums and piano keys as well as a separate xylophone. As William would readily put any of this in his mouth, we haven’t given him the xylophone or striker.
William was given this toy at Easter. We all discovered how much fun it was having this toy light up and make all sorts of sounds including notes, full songs and animal noises. Someone joked we’d be sorry we put batteries in it and turned it on.
William was able to enjoy it as a quiet toy as well, very quickly figuring out just what he was to do with it.
At daycare he enjoyed playing it and soon the other older boys came over also to see this amazing toy.
The toy can stimulate a child’s imagination for long periods of time. It’s designed for children aged 6 months to 3 years and it (and the xylophone) seems quite durable so they can use them all that time. I look forward to William enjoying and getting even more out of this toy as he gets older and can learn and process more.
