Sound Children

This is a double shaker of African origin and in Africa it’s called the Kashaka. It’s fun to play and makes a pleasing soft sound.

They are very light to hold and so good for very young children to play.

Cascas are also included in our Musical Baby Baonding and Musical Baby Bonding Professional’s Music Kits.

Product Information

What's included

There are lots of ways of playing this shaker but most very young children will just shake it!

You can also do more technical things like holding the cascas through your fingers so your palm is facing upwards like half a ‘prayer-hand’. Put one of the cascas shakers so it is trapped on the inside of your hand and the other dangling down. Now just swing the cascas forward and bwackward. It should hit the othe cascas so that it makes a hitting sound as well as a shaking sound.

Of course babies won’t be able to do this yet but you could try it and it’d be very interesting for a baby to see and hear.
