If you’re a musician who just happens to have some kids running around at home I’m sure you’re always looking for music toys to stimulate their musical imagination. It can be tough to find good musical toys for the kids to play with. I know I’ve spent hours searching on various websites looking for the perfect musical gifts for my children only to find a limited selection of low quality musical toys.
The key is to find quality musical toys, things that are really instruments that can pass as a toy. There are a lot of cheap, junky musical toys out there on the big shopping websites that hardly qualify as instruments. If you go to a musical instrument website it can be a challenge to sort through the hundreds of music instruments to find things appropriate for the little kids. I have found that Musician’s Friend has a really large selection of quality musical instruments that can pass as toys for the kids and will allow them to make some decent music. They have everything from little glockenspiels made by Hohner that babies can play to really sweet Martin starter guitars that kids 8 years old and older can play.
This year Musician’s Friend has made it extremely easy to shop for good musical instrument toys for the kids. They have created a section on their website dedicated to kids and have broken down their selection of instruments into age appropriate categories. I’m sure you’ve seen lists like this on other shopping websites. The beautiful thing about this one is that it’s all music related and they are, for the most part, real music instruments. They’re also priced to fit any budget and skill level.
There are a few items on the list that are more toy than music instrument but overall the selection is some serious quality instruments for kids. My only warning is to watch out for the Rogue line of instruments. They are a budget line of musical instruments that I have found to be of substandard quality. If you’re going to get a guitar for your little rocker, your best off buying the Martin, Ibanez, Epiphone or Dean guitars. Other manufacturers on the list whose names are associated with quality are Remo, Fender, Hohner, Pearl, Yamaha, Vic Firth and Ludwig.
The great thing about Musician’s Friend is if you get the instrument home and you feel the quality isn’t what you expected you have 45 days to return it for a full refund. You just can’t go wrong with that kind of guarantee. So, if you’re shopping for musical gifts for your kids just click on the banner below and find that perfect gift for your little musician!
