Rated 2 out of 5 by Lori beginner band set
I bought this set for my 2 year old. The harmonica, jingle stick, and the castanets were a hit. However, the xylophone and the kazoo were a huge disappointment. No sound will come out of the kazoo. As for the xylophone, the only time we can really hear different musical notes is if we run the wooden mallet quickly across all of the bars at one time. If we simply hit each bar separately, the sounds are very close and not at all entertaining for our little one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Musicmom Good start
It is a great beginner set with tons of learning to be had. The quality is not amazing which is why I only gave it 3 stars.It is great that it comes on a wooden tray that you can take out, your child can paint and use to play with Melissa and Doug play food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MrsB Noise makers, not instruments
We didn't realize the instruments wouldn't be tuned. For example, the xylophone's keys are not in order. They are just random notes, not in a scale. That makes this a really poor toy for people who would like children to learn something about music. It's only useful as a noise maker. A shame from a toy company I had trusted to make good quality toys. As a Kindergarten teacher and mother, I would not recommend this toy.
