Play By The Pound

This colorful xylophone is a wonderfully fun way for children to stimulate their natural sense of harmony and rhythm. Using the mallet to pound the bars will help them develop fine motor skill and stimulate eye-hand coordination. And, since each bar produces different pitch, telling children to pound the bars by switching the colors, will help stimulate hearing and listening, develop recognition skill and also learn about colors at the same time. Pounding the bars has an effect on children; it generates interest, develops concentration and also help to release tension within. Made in Thailand.

Comments about OVAL XYLOPHONE:

Purchased for our yet to be born baby so I can't speak to how it holds up to a little one. Very excited to share music with our baby. I was hoping for a little better tone quality and pitch but I'm a music person so maybe my hopes were too high. Very excited to see our little one play with this.

Comments about OVAL XYLOPHONE:

The product looks really nice, but the sound was really disappointing. Only the smallest two of the wood pieces make a little tone. The others are just a flat sound with no difference from each other. I know this isn't a fine instrument, but I still expected a little more.

Comments about OVAL XYLOPHONE:

My grand daughter loves this and shes 1 yrs old. I was just disappointed on the sound. Being wood it has a duller sound then the metal ones use to have. It is sturdy and she seems to love playing with it, so that's all that matters!

    Comments about OVAL XYLOPHONE:

    this weems to be a wonderful toy and I look forward to my granddaughter using it - BUT it was not clearly marked for age and when it came I discover5ed it was for 19 months and up - and she was turning one. i presume it was the stick that could be a danger, but this was not obvious from the details given.The toys looks great but should be clearly age-graded.

    Comments about OVAL XYLOPHONE:

    I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 14 month-old niece. I know she's a bit younger than the product reccommends, but I decided that her love of music and the fact that the product was made of wood should make a good match. I was right. My niece likes it a lot. Especially the mallet which becomes a pretend sucker, but it's big enough that we're not concerned about it being a choking hazard.
    The only thing I didn't like about this product was the musical scale that was used. Instead of a major scale (which has a happier, more child-friendly tone), this one leans minor near the end. It's... odd. But it's not terribly off-putting and because the product is wood instead of metal, the tones are softer and not as shrill/grating.

    Service and delivery comments:

    My delivery was prompt. It may have arrived a day earlier than expected, actually.

    My product was in perfect condition.

    I did not use customer service.

    Comments about OVAL XYLOPHONE:

    I absolutely LOVE that this toy is environmentally friendly and chemical free- all children's toys should be! The only downside to that is that it's not supposed to get wet, which meant I couldn't give it to the 8-month-old I bought it for because like most kids her age, everything goes in the mouth. In the mean time though, it's very pretty and will look cute sitting on the shelf in her room.

    It creates very nice, rich tones due to it being wood (except for the little blue one which sounded a little dead), which is a pleasant change from the loud ringing of the metal ones (this IS still loud though, fyi).

    Overall, I'd definitely recommend it!

      I love this xylophone! It is such fun to play with, and looks great on the toy shelf when not in use. What a great design! I am so tired of ugly plastic toys, this is really refreshing!
