This is the summary of consumer reviews for Melissa & Doug Band in a Box. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.10 stars, and the price range is $19.35-$23.25.
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. They are perfectly sized to fit into the hands of toddlers or grown up kids.
Some reviewers were disappointed with the low sound quality. They felt that the set did not meet its purpose of a percussion instrument. The tambourine quality was very low as it broke off very easily in most cases. The triangle and its striker are metal made and needed constant supervision for toddlers as they were prone to hurt themselves.
Overall, the Melissa & Dough Band in a Box instruments are durable and comes in a reasonable price. Though not highly recommended it has been guaranteed to bring hours of musical joy among children.
