I must admit I completely agree with the reviewer who complains it's a glockenspiel and not a xylophone. When purchasing a £12 child's toy, which comes complete with colour coded music ranging from Jingle Bells to Beethoven's 9th, I find the differentiation between xylophone and glockenspiel to be of utmost importance. My 10month old stopped licking the mallet as soon as he realised the travesty of justice and the blatant breach of trade description that had befallen him.

Up until that point, he found it to be a fascinating toy that is good for fine motor skill development. The mallet tastes nice too.

The bars are all in tune, so you can play a proper tune.
There was a little leaflet inside with some tunes to try.
When you've had enough, baby can have a go too!
It seems to be well made and and safe for babies/toddlers to use.
The yellow mallet clips in on the underside when not in use.

Would definately recommed - not just for babies, but any child under 5.

I read so many reviews for xylophones, wanted a first birthday present with a good tone, safety features and that would appeal to my granddaughter. Ticked these boxes!

This is a nice little Glockenspiel which I purchased for my nephew who seems to enjoy music very much.

It feels nicely put together and there's no sharp edges which is great. The inset keys ensure fingers shouldn't get stuck and the keys are held in place with soft-ish rubber stubs and the hammer is one piece so no bits to come unattached.

Thankfully it sounds like it's in tune. I didn't have chance to check it with a tuner but the songs sound about right and I didn't notice any obvious flat/duff notes, which was something of a concern having looked over reviews of other "Xylophones" for children. All in all, it sounds quite nice. The keys have quite a bright sound if hit cleanly and it's quite loud (this can be a pro or con depending on the situation). It comes in a plastic stowaway bag and also comes with a small booklet with 4 songs to play. Whilst this is a good start as the notes are colour coded and are also show on a staff, a few more would have been nice.

The item was given as a Christmas present, and she enjoyed the ability to make some noise. She is too young yet to be able to use it to play tunes.

This xylophone met all my expectations. The sound is quite metallic but it is actually in tune! And the price is good.

This is my 11 month old daughters favourite toy yet! It took a few days of showing her how to bash it and now she goes straight for it and will happily bash away. It will last her for ages yet and she'l be able to read the music to play the tunes on the sheet provided easily one day as the notes are colour coded to the bars.

We bought this xylophone for my daughter's 1st birthday and she LOVES it. It has been specially made to be totally safe, with the keys enclosed in the plastic casing, and the beater is lightweight and easy to hold. It is properly tuned and makes a lovely sound, so it holds my daughter's attention for ages. My 3 year old loves it too. You can play a range of well known tunes and nursery rhymes on it so all in all it is a satisfying toy at a good price.

This xylophone (glockenspiel?) is beautifully designed and made and I have been so impressed with it! It is very sturdy, and built so that it is safe for younger children. However, what I didn't expect is the beautiful sound that it makes! It creates an extremely musical sound which makes it a lot of fun for children and parents alike to play with. You could easily confuse it with a proper musical instrument. Get one!
