What they say: "The Little Hands Music Band is just what all toddlers need to start discovering the wonders of music, sound and rhythm! This beautiful, richly coloured gift set includes a Baby Xylophone, Ocean Drum, Rattle Roller and Rainbospinner instruments, all designed especially for mini maestros!

"The bestselling Baby Xylophone is accurately tuned and features a chunky shape with rounded edges, making this instrument safe for curious fingers, whilst both the Ocean Drum and Rainbospinner make fascinating sounds with cascading beads creating wonderful visual effects. Early years music making aids the development of motor skills and senses, along with encouraging communication skills."

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend this product because my daughter absolutely adores it! The design of each of the instruments is beautiful, they're extremely well made, like real little instruments for toddlers. They are bright and colourful and keep my daughter entertained for hours. The product even comes with songs that we have enjoyed learning to play together.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product makes my life easier for me as a mum because it keeps my daughter entertained. We have hours of fun playing the instruments together and learning to play different tunes on the xylophone. I know that the product is safe for her to use because it is so well made so I don't have to worry about parts.

Would you choose this product to win?

It has been well made with toddlers in mind. It has real little instruments that are colourful entertaining. They're also easy for little hands to use. I have never seen another musical instrument set for a child which is this standard of quality.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I could suggest to improve this product is to add some more songs for the children to learn and play. We have absolutely loved learning how to play them and would have loved for there to be some more. Possibly a little book or something. Other than that this product is one of my favourite toys that I have purchased.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

We as a family loved this product. We loved the little card that came with the instruments (xylophone) so we as parents could learn to play music that our little one could recognise and join in with dancing and using the other instruments. I think us as parents enjoyed this more than our little one. it came in a lovely box so we could keep all instruments together so our little one could open the box and all instruments were all there ready to play.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The product was great to have family time together and all join in playing different instruments and laugh and sing together. We as parents enjoyed this and made our life easier when our little one is having fun with mum and dad and learning new motor skills, There isn't anything I'd do to make this product and better - it was lovely and colourful, great quality and all tidied away together in the box nicely. Great for all items to be kept together and ready for my little one to use.

Would you choose this product to win?

I loved the little touch of short songs mum and dad could learn to play (made us look clever ;-)) and we enjpoyed learning to play the music too. Our little one enjoyed listening to us play and watching us. The product ios very colourful so it definitely caught my little ones eye and he was keen to learn. He loved to bang on the little tambourine and watch all the balls move around.

What changes would you make to this product?

We as a family loved this product!!!! The only recommendation we would perhaps suggest is maybe a little song book (for mum and dad really) as we really enjoyed playing to our little one and it made us look really clever ha ha. The ratchet my little one found quite difficult to use but we showed him that he could roll/push it along the floor to make a noise. He loved the little drum he could bang and watch all the little balls move around in all different directions. The shaker was great although could probably do with being a little wider so my little one can see what's happening inside
