ConsiderationsSome kids may outgrow it fairly quickly
Bottom lineThe Hape 6-in-1 Music Maker helps your little one explore their inner rockstar with six different instruments.
The Hape 6-in-1 Music Maker lets kids explore rhythm, sound and a range of instruments, including a xylophone, tambourine and drum, all within a non-electronic “guitar” that’s easy for toddlers to hold. The brightly coloured, high-quality wooden construction can stand up to rough-and-tumble play, and it has a durable finish that can be cleaned with a damp cloth (so you can always pass it along to other budding musicians in the future). Perhaps best of all, the Music Maker isn’t excessively loud, partly because of the muting effect of the rubber drumstick. (It's also the only detachable part, so there’s no need to worry about choking hazards.) As far as musical toys go, this is one parents won’t get sick of hearing in a hurry.
