A 2016 study at the University of Southern California’s Brain and Creativity Institute found that musical experiences in childhood can actually accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills.
Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, social and emotional development, motor skills and language and literacy. It helps with coordination helping the body and the mind work together and to learn sounds.
Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. Nothing sweeter than watching little people dance freely to music and now they can generate their own tunes.
Babies love rattles and shaking a rattle is commonly one of our first musical experiences. Rattles, bells and shakers teach children how to make musical sounds and beat out rhythms from a very early age. The ever popular I'm Toy Melody Mix is a band all in one - features 10 different sound and music experiences in a sturdy rubberwood frame with dedicated storage slots. Includes xylophone, drum, tubular chimes, triangle, cymbal, bells, maracas, castanet, double guiro, and pair of rhythm sticks plus 2 strikers and 1 scraper.
