Our colorful Rhythm Set by Hape is a unique addition to any musical instrument collection. Use the stick to slide down the wooden ridges of the guiro or rattle the clapper to tap the wooden pieces together. Little ones will find it easy to make their own music as this rhythm set is sized to fit the hands of the littlest musicians. These instruments complement other musical toys by Hape such as Mini Maracas, Rainbow Xylophone, Little Drummer, Mr. Tambourine, and Pound and Tap Bench. Wood for this toy comes from an FSC-managed forest accented with water-based paint and is made to meet the strictest of safety standards. Hape toys are designed to enhance developmental skills and are intended to last generations.
