Winner of the Gold Award in the Practical Preschool Awards 2013, this large Music Kit contains 60 instruments and is perfect for exploring instruments with groups of up to 15 children, or, if you have the room, with a whole class of 30+ children and adults too. There’s a full set of 30 Music Cards and a “What It’s Called + Where It’s From” card, that will tell you about each of the instruments in the kit. The kit is easy to store and packs neatly into 2 bamboo baskets. It can easily be split up into smaller sets and shared between different groups. In this kit there is plenty for everyone! For 3 years and over.

N.B. For Early Years settings please note:

A. Our products are musical instruments, not toys, and should always be used under the supervision of responsible educationalists and carers and not left with children under 3 years of age to play with by themselves.

B. Please follow the simple “Good Practice” guidelines set out in the “Traditionally” section below.

For SEN settings: please put a note with your order to indicate that it’s needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.

Product Information

What's included

We decided to put together a huge kit of small instruments because it is so exciting for children to be offered a big quantity of resources. Sometimes children panic when they see there is only one of something and can be put off exploring instruments if they feel they won’t have a chance of playing something ‘interesting’. We also wanted to create a kit which would accommodate 60 children which means two classes can play together. Sometimes this is useful because some 4 and 5 year olds share one space and therefore it is very difficult to make music together. This kit is particularly amazing for being explored and investigated. Children love taking these instruments out of the baskets and spending lots of time just looking at them, playing them, examining them and swapping them with each other. This type of exploration is valuable for children because they are discovering for themselves how the instruments work, what sound they make, how they compare to one another and so on. All you need to do is oversee. The exploring of so many instruments will engage your children for ages. Because it is a very large kit, it is best if you guide the children a little with exploring and playing just to make sure things don’t get too hectic. If you give the children lots of time then they will realise they don’t need to rush. Children will want to examine everything and will rush through the initial exploration coming back to explore in more detail if you give them the time. The instruments in this kit cover a huge variety of sounds from different sizes of drums to shakers of all sots, chimes and other metal instruments, resonators, woodblocks, scrapers and unusual sounds such as thunder drums and frog twirlers. We have deliberately included many pairs of instruments which often encourages friends to work together exploring the same instrument. This kit will provide you with all the instruments you could want for young children and because they are small, you’ll find that even though there are 60 instruments, they don’t take up a lot of space and they have two lovely baskets to go in. You can also divide these instruments amongst several sets of children across your setting so that everyone can have a go. And finally, you are provided with a large-ish drum so that you can take charge! The Lots of Littles Kit has been awarded the Gold Award by the judges of the Practical Preschool Awards 2013 and scored 93.5 points out of a maximum possible of 100.
