Musical Toys

Wide Range of Musical Toys for Young Budding Musicians

At Our Past Times, we have a wide selection of toys for babies and children of all ages. All our toys are carefully selected to ensure they provide children with stimulation, promote creativity, the use of their imagination, and aid in their overall development. Our choice of toys also aims to provide endless entertainment limiting the need or want for lots of screentime. Our range of toys do not require batteries but rather human intervention to make them move or produce a sound, this promotes curiosity and develops fine motor skills. Our range of musical toys includes both the more commonly known instruments and the less heard of, such as castanets.

Benefits of Musical Toys for Kids

Research has found that music stimulates child development and skills that prepare them for school, including intellectual, social, emotional, motor, language, and literacy spheres. Early exposure to music helps children learn the differences between sounds and meanings of words. Music forms a vital role in human society and all cultures; providing your baby or toddler with musical toys is an excellent way to introduce them to music.

  • Musical toys such as xylophones and flutes provide kids with the opportunity to repeat melodies while bells, castanets, and maracas generate percussive sounds that stimulate their brains and promote creativity.
  • Research shows that a toddler that plays with musical toys achieves better language development, speech, listening, and reading skills than a toddler that is not exposed or less exposed to music. Music stimulates neural pathways and encourages critical thinking and problem-solving.
  • Fine motor skills and development of hand muscles are improved through holding sticks and hitting a drum or xylophone, and covering the holes of a recorder. Hand-eye coordination also develops when aiming to hit a specific key on a xylophone.
