I gave this to my nephew for his birthday and my sister sort of happily reported that he played with it everyday. A nice collection of instruments for kids, and my brother in law thought the triangle was great for calling everyone to dinner. Nothing seemed shoddy or poorly made and it has been thoroughly tested. The maracas are a little quiet but my sister was happy with that. It's drums for xmas!

Bought this for my grand daughters first birthday. It is very well made and her and her three year old sister, nanny and mummy had a fabulous sing a long on her birthday morning. Favorite piece is the triangle. Very well made and delivered on time. Very very pleased with the product, would recommend it and would buy from site again. This will be around for a long time as it is so well made.

Actually bought this for my 5 month old for Christmas, even though it's not for children so young, he absolutely loves it. Definitely one of the better quality musical instrument sets although I do think that the colour on the maracas and the clapper will come off over time. Overall, I would highly recommend and for us, I expect it to last several years.

This was bought as a present for a 1 year old and they love it (just have to supervise with some elements as is meant for older children). Was surprised at the quality of the product as it exceeded expectations. Also a lot larger than I thought. Would love to get one of these sets for my own child and would def recommend!

Simply excellent. My 8 month old took to this with a penchant and we join in. Within a week, he has learnt a lot about rhythm and improved his motor skills. He now takes turns "singing" while beating the tambourine, excellent!!
When he gets tired, he uses either of the jingles as a teether :)

I bought this for my granddaughters (aged 3 and 11 months) and as with all Melissa & Doug products it is extremely good quality and beautifully presented. I've yet to hear the noises it will make but I am looking forward to that and I know my granddaughters will loe playing with it.

Willing to put up with a few loud bangs and endless noise, I bought this set for my 3 year old son. He loves playing with the instruments and I love my new ear muffs. But truly, a great joy to see him try to make rhythms with the various instruments.

The tambourine (the main item we wanted) was not as advertised. We wanted all natural as shown in the photo but received one which was predominantly plastic. The photo on this review has been changed from the original one that we ordered

My 18 month girl LOVES these instruments, they are excellent quality. Couldn't be happier with them, they take me back to my school days as well, only problem is I don't get to play them as my LO takes them away from me.

This is a nicely presented little set of musical instruments from the Melissa and Doug range. In common with many other items from the same manufacturers, the instruments come packed in a sturdy little wooden storage box that is only a lid short of being perfect. The instruments themselves are of good enough quality, although the cymbals are a bit tinny and the tambourine doesn't make the best noise when struck.

All of the items in the set are either banging or shaking instruments, so the set is slightly limited when it comes to range, but even so my nephew has spent an enjoyable time making a lot of noise, to say nothing of accidentally bashing his daddy with the maracas!
