This gorgeous wooden xylophone is a great toy for little ones as it encourages music making, sensory and self expression. The pastel metal keys play clear tones and ring beautifully. Tones can be increased or decreased by how hard hard the keys are hit with the wooden playing stick. This xylophone encourages children to explore their musical side by creating their own tunes and playing with different sounds. This wooden xylophone is made from timber and painted with child safe, non toxic paint.
