This is a wonderful little instrument, great for all ages and made from the goatskin left over from the drum-making process.
It can be shaken and squeezed at the same time which makes a very interesting set of sounds.
As well as being a great little shaker (in class try using them for emphasising syllables, for counting and lots more), children enjoy decorating them. Goatskin - which is after all what we used to call parchment - can be written on in pencil, ink, felt-tip or watercolours.
They are also included in our Nursery Shaker, Musical Baby Bonding and Musical Baby Bonding Professionals Music Kits..
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.
