Kids love to explore musical concepts with this adorable twist on a classic instrument. A sturdy wooden base with a sweet caterpillar face holds a full octave of metal keys in all the colors of the rainbow. The eight keys are marked with their corresponding note names. The two mallets are easy for small hands to grip and store in the base to become the caterpillar’s antennas. An included double-sided song card features color-coded and lettered notes on a musical staff to help kids learn to play Mary Had A Little Lamb and Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Kids are intuitive music-makers giving them fun and simple instruments like the Caterpillar Xylophone at an early age helps encourage these skills and enhance cognitive, social-emotional, language, and sensory development skills. Learning to play with the mallets is also great for fine motor development. Music promotes creativity and artistic expression and has been shown to help strengthen lifelong learning skills like memory and concentration.
