Award winning set! Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal (1999) and the Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner (1999). Please note the review text from Ruth Roufberg of Parents' Choice: "Authentic, rich-sounding instruments handcrafted by village artisans in Peru and Bali include pair of claves (wood rhythm sticks), shaker (carved dried gourd), and drum (double headed goat skin stretched over wooden bark frame). Audio CD, rhythm cards, 30-page activity guide, and carrying bag are included.” The Jamtown Jr. Children's Musical Instrument Starter Set features an instructional all-percussion songs CD. The lyrics encourage practice of the basic repeating beats at different tempos. Due to the handmade nature of these products, natural variations may occur.
