I have a tiny confession….I think my son is going to be the next Justin Bieber. Hey, a mom can only dream! Plus providing youngsters who show any inclination towards music with some of these items might help them on their way to being inducted into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame. (PS. In light of Hollie’s PSA to Gift Giving Aunts & Uncles, this Rock Star Gift Guide is only for the parents!)
Tolo Classic Trumpet ($12.98)
The youngest member of the band can now “Toot Toot” three different sounds with his own lightweight, easy to play trumpet. Bright primary colors and an easy grip handle make this a winning instrument for one year olds.
The Dance on Keyboard ($39.95)
This keyboard mat allows budding virtuosos to compose their own music as they dance, jump, or run on the keys. Fourteen white and 10 black keys–almost two full octaves–produce individual tones or melodic harmonies. Nearly 6′ long, the keyboard is large enough for duets, and musicians can record and instantly listen to their compositions or tap along with prerecorded songs. The mat replicates the sounds of eight instruments (piano, guitar, trumpet, saxophone, banjo, oboe, violin, and vibraphone). Requires four AA batteries. For ages 3 and up. 72″ L x 30″ W. (2 3/4 lbs.)
Plan Toy Musical Band ($54.00)
Plan Toy Musical Band is a complete drum set for preschoolers. It comes with two drums, a metal cymbal, guiro and two drumsticks. This set stands over 13″ tall – just the right size for young musicians. The drums are made of hardwood with strong and resilient latex drumheads, built for years of drumming. This set encourages your child to develop his sense of rhythm and music – great for building an early math skills foundation. Musical Band is a fun set for budding musicians. This musical toy enhances hand-eye coordination and boosts concentration skill as it helps children to become little musicians.
