Tone Drum by Hohner

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Details: Green Tones from Hohner: Hohner is a high end name brand company that offers great musical instruments, and just started their own Green, Eco Friendly musical instruments for children of all ages.  Each instrument is made from mangowood or rubberwood.  "Green Tones: good for your child, good for the planet".  Their products improve physical skills like: sensory processing, gross and fine motor skills, sense of rhythm.  Their products improve cognitive skills like: imagination and creativity, curiosity and discovery, self expression or confidence.   Their toys are broken into age categories: 6-12 months, 24+ months, 3+ years.  As well as broken into categories like infant activities, toddler activities, preschool activities,  Safe and sustainable products: chemical free rubberwood, non toxic glue, water based VOC free paint, recycled papers, eco efficiency, reforestation with sustainable packaging too.

My Review: I have not seen a musical instrument like this before.  Its different, but really fun.  The sounds that come from this are very unique.  So what you have is basically a wooden box that is probably hollow.  Then they cut open spaces on the top at different lengths and intervals.  So when you use the mallet that comes with this musical instrument, you hit each piece of wood on top and a different tone comes from that piece of wood.  Its really cool.  Each musical instrument from this company have the following symbol stamped or burned into it, which I like because people ask about it all the time.  I am a home school mom of younger children.  I find these Eco Friendly, GREEN musical instruments way better than any thing I've seen or had my eye on in a catalog.  The sounds each piece of wood makes is beautiful to listen to.  The mallets are safe and easy to use by children.  The catalog for this company has so many amazing products, I want teachers, home schooler families, home school groups, preschoolers, child care givers, Day cares, Nannies to really look into this company because these products are truly AMAZING!  My children love playing with these for school time, play time, and when they're bored.  I have family who teach in the Primary at their church who really love these products too, and can't wait to buy some for their Sunday classes.

Product: Tone Drum: can be found on amazon, via the link provided.  This is made from rubberwood which is 100% Eco Friendly, and renewable.  Perfect for children 3 and up.  The rubber topped mallet that comes with this drum is made with an easy to hold handle which is thicker, then the wooden topped mallets for other musical instruments.  Helps provide a well rounded rhythm foundation that will also help stimulate creativity.  

 Pros: eco friendly, desirable sounds, fun to use, easy to use, safe for children, safe for adults, great products, good pricing, excellent customer service from company employees!

Cons: I now have been asked by my children to replace all our non-wooden Green Tone Hohner musical instruments so that they have a good selection from this company.  But let's be honest that's not really a negative thing at all.

CONTEST: Do you want a chance to win a Bear Drum and Melody Glokenspiel?  Here's your chance!  Email us at why you want this prize, and what age group of children you get the opportunity to help influence musically and winner will be chosen on Monday 28th!
