(Preschool Prodigies Playground $70-199)
An amazing set of color-coded bells that play a C Major Diatonic Scale. Set the bells up in an octave and your ready too play any number of familiar tunes in the color coded music book. An online playground is also open for finding more music as well as musical lessons. Unlike bells that are lifted and shaken, these have a dinger-ringer on top of each—the kind teachers used to have in school. This is a pricey gift, but unlike a lot of toy instruments, this has a sweet musical sound and kids will be able to play folktunes they know almost instantly. Following the color coded music, calls for reading from left to right, just as we read words, so this is a pictorial way to build reading readiness and eye sweep with beginning readers.
Ages: Preschoolers, Early School
