Review Summary

Melissa & Dough Band in a Box is everything that a child needs to enjoy and explore music and sounds. This 10 pieces set includes musical instruments - 2 cymbals, 2 maracas, clacker, tambourine, tone blocks, triangle with striker and a wooden storage crate. The instruments made very low sound which in a way is an advantage as it does not disturb or annoy others members. Though the triangle sound was good and loud, it sounded very unpleasant. These instruments are favorite among children, they have fun along with the music playing in the background or they love to make parades while banging these instruments and creating their own music. This set is well made and durable except the tambourine which breaks off easily.
