As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
This set was a gift for my 7 year old niece. My son who will be 11 received a set for his 9th birthday and they were a MAJOR hit with all the kids. The kids get to use them at school in music class. So now they can play at home too!
I should've listened to the other reviews. The quality is awful... such thin plastic. Banging them together doesn't make any notes... just sounds like plastic banging together... not a pleasant sound at all. Waste of money & doesn't create music like I was meant to believe....
Try whacking Boomwhackers against a variety of hand surfaces, (instead of banging one Boomwhacker against another Boomwhacker). This provides more clear, pure tones. Additionally, the Chromatics Boomwacker set may be combined with any Diatonic scale set for more sound variation. We're in tune with your needs if you'd like a refund or exchange.

Information about Chromatics Set
Posted 6/28/2011 by Cyndi Wehmeyer
We use Boom Whackers in our preschool music classes.
They are a big hit. The children love learning when the Boom Whackers are involved. They help to develop an ear for different sounds, teach following directions, reinforce team learning and reinforce color recognition. Boom Whackers also fit nicely into small hands.
I ordered these to use with a preschool class. We've only had a few sessions with them, but they're enjoying them a lot. Although one comment was "they're only PVC pipe - we could make those for less!" I disagree. They're the right lengths to make the notes sound true, and the colors with the note letter names allow all kinds of learning activities with the kids. Might even come up with science fair ideas using these Boomwhackers!
