5 awesome musical toys for toddlers


Musical toys are often misrepresented for babies and toddlers.

When we say musical toys here, we are not talking about any old toy that lights up and blares out a number of pre-recorded tunes. We are talking about basic musical toys that can teach children about musicality.

Percussion toys are a great starting point, as are simple wind instruments like a toy harmonica.

Children can learn cause and effect, and it has been shown that children who play with musical toys at a young age are more likely to take up playing an instrument in later life.
