Teach Your Kids About The Joy Of Music

Children are very young when they learn about the joy of music! 

From birth they can be soothed by music and sound. Watch a toddler’s face light up when they recognise a familiar tune or discover they can use their body to join in. But music is not just great fun, it also helps with early brain and language development. When children play with musical instruments, they explore cause and effect. When they sing, they are practising language skills. Nursery rhymes with actions are great for fine motor skills and dance develops gross motor development. Listening to music, singing songs and playing instruments provides so many learning opportunities.

Kidstuff has a carefully selected range of musical toys to suit all ages.



FOR KIDS OF 0 TO 2

Bello My First Xylophone 


Xylophones are wonderful first musical instruments for young children and can be used from the time they can steadily sit up. By gripping the sticks they are practising fine motor skills and exploring the different sounds develops understand of cause and effect. These are important early cognitive skills.

How to Use With Your Child:

1- Teach them about high and low sounds: You play a high sound and they reach up high with their body.

2- Play a low sound and they crouch down low or lay on the ground. You can then swap and your child plays a note and you go high or low!

3- Practice learning colours, teaching dynamics – soft and loud, and playing simple tunes.
