Listen and learn musical instruments

Little children can hear the sounds of more than 70 musical instruments with these delightfully illustrated sound cards. There are four double-sided cards showing groups of instruments from a cello to a didgeridoo and trombone. Slot a card into the frame, then press the picture of an instrument to hear its sound.

Review from Carla, mum of Marco (age 4):

"My 4-year-old Marco already loves the Listen and Learn series of books; the sound cards are such a clever idea, and allow independent choice (very important to pre-schoolers!)

The newest title Musical Instruments is a fantastic departure from the word and language titles. It has four double-sided cards, each featuring 9 different instruments, nicely grouped into categories: drums, strings, keys, wind etc. The child selects a card, presses on the word 'go' to activate the sounds and then presses on the picture of each instrument to hear it.

With 72 different instruments – some very unusual (vibraslap anyone?) and some that will be familiar already (piano, guitar, violin) – it makes a fantastic introduction to instruments from around the world."
