Music and Percussion instruments

For infants, toddlers, and preschool development that you can play with your child at home. Click on the title or the picture for Amazon link to purchase.

2. Jingle Bell


Hohner's Animal Jingle Bell is fun, sturdy and great for learning early "cause and effect" of hand grip and arm movement. Also perfect for teething babies to mouth.

5. Tambourine


LMIs' transparent tambourine is the perfect first percussion instrument for classes or home. Easy for little fingers to grip, and comes in a variety of eye-catching colors. Easy to clean and sturdy.

3. Pipe Chime Xylophone


Easier to play and more sonorous than a traditional kid's xylophone, Woodstock's Pipe Chime is sturdy enough for infant ages 4 months and up and will grow with the child. Also great for parents, and can be played together.

4. Handheld Drum


Remo's vibrant Lollipop handheld drum head is virtually unbreakable, easy to clean and sonorous enough to use in a recording studio (and it has been!). Teething babies love to chew the handle and soft mallet. Great for home and music classes. Recommended for infants ages 4 months and up, great for toddlers who like banging.

1. Floor Drum


The foundation of Rhythm is of course the drum. Drums on the floor encourage babies to sit up and eventually pull up to stand to play the drum. Remo makes excellent high-quality drums for children that will last years and will easily withstand little feet and hands. Shown here are three recommended sizes: Small Bongos for individual use, Medium tom-toms for two people, and Extra Large tom-tom for multiple players. 

6. Egg Shakers


A must-have. Simply the easiest instrument for babies and toddlers to grasp and play. Fun in groups, no rough edges for little boo-boos and and easy to clean.

7. Harmonica


Harmonicas are a fun and super easy way to strengthen little lungs for speech and singing. Great for babies as young as 10 months old and up. There's some junk out there but Hohner is solid. Always buy in 2 to play together!
