    Comments about SLIDE WHISTLE:

    Husband was pleased with this gift! He loves to whistle, and loves to try to imitate birds. He loved the uniqueness of this gift. It's not something you find out and about everyday. He's still practicing with it, it's not simple enough for young children I don't think, but older children and adults could have fun with this if music and whistiling is their thing!

              Very UNCOMMON gifts should bring lots of fun to the person who enjoys creative play. This is for a teacher of 6-12 year old kids and I expect to hear tons of stories over the next several months!

                  I bought this for my boyfriend's birthday, as he is a music tech major. He absolutely loved it. He is going to get so many uses out of it. This whistle is great quality, and easy to play. good purchase.

                          I got one of these for my grandson. Of course I had to give it a try before I sent it off to him. Its a durable metal instrument with a clear satisfying tone. Yes it really is fun and I know my grandson will have lots of fun with it.
