Learning to appreciate music has various benefits for children, such as helping them develop rhythm, enhancing creativity, developing intelligence and even improving the ability to learn and do well in school and society. Moreover, perhaps you have noticed that kids love to channel their energy into artistic forms like dancing and singing. So what better gift to give to a child regardless of his or her age than the gift of music. Here are some ideas that might help you choose between all the musical toys on the market. The one thing to remember is that such toys can become annoying or distracting for adults over time. If sound is a concern, try to pick something that won't be obnoxious or something that has a volume adjustment or an off button. This is also important because if a toy is too loud it has the potential to damage a child's hearing.
This is a time when instruments start taking an active role in a child's life, especially if they are inclined to play with musical instruments. They may also be getting involved with instruments at school, so it's a good idea to let them try out as many as they are interested in. They could show potential! Just be sure to make a definitive choice between a "toy instrument" and a "real instrument." Maybe start a five-year old out with a toy and advance to something more realistic as they get older and if he or she takes an interest in playing the instrument.
Other things that are fun for this age group besides instruments themselves are karaoke machines. There's nothing like singing along with friends and family. Another alternative is a tiny boombox and a few CDs to go with it. Depending on what parents allow, you might even consider a portable CD player meant for kids. The only problem is that the headphones could cause a concern since they might cause hearing damage to such young ears.
