Premium craftsmanship and a focus on sound quality places, this set is head and shoulders above similar kits. Children can play by themselves or form a band. Durable construction is built to last.
Better suited to children over the age of 3. However, with supervision younger kids can enjoy it, too.
Feature rich design that teaches counting, colors, and introduces social skills and manners. A variety of songs, sounds, and lights keep playtime interesting. Chunky construction is easy for little fingers to handle.
Very much geared toward girls, although boys who manage to get their hands on it will probably love it too!
4 classical tunes accompanied by colorful lights make for engaging entertainment. Large center button allows little ones to easily change songs. Robust construction withstands rough handling. Adjustable volume.
Button needs to be pressed at the end of each song for it to play the next – a feature that toddlers enjoy but can frustrate smaller babies.
A fun early introduction to classical music. Teaches children how each instrument/sound plays a role in music. Little ones get to “compose” music or listen to a the instruments together. Lights pulse to the rhythm for visual effect.
A bit bulky, and may be difficult for smaller babies to grip. Tunes could play a little longer.
Light up drum pads and cymbals teach children basic drumming skills. Features a variety of built-in tunes to play along with. Free play option lets children get creative.
Figuring out how to select the free play option without a backing track is a little tricky at first.

Music toys are a great way to encourage a love of music for kids of any age. So many baby toys feature some musical component, from shaking a rattle to hitting a button that plays a snippet of music. Several even feature different classical instruments and music. For toddlers and preschoolers, music toys often feature longer song snippets that your kids can learn and sing along with. Toy drums are always a big hit with kids as well, and toy drums feature all the sounds of a full drum kit in one small toy. There are also toy versions of real musical instruments, like bells, triangles, and tambourines, that can give kids their first taste of playing music all on their own.
