These xylophone-style metallophones are the best we've seen! Not cheap throwaway toys, they make beautiful music and are also safe and educational. Color coded metal tubes of different lengths have notes and numbers on them. A soft plastic frame holds the tubes in place (tubes can be switched around at will). With mallets and songbook.
Recommended for its educational value by John Sebastian, Marilyn Horne, André Watts, Peter Shickele and the late Jim Henson. Tuned to C Major, the Chimalong can be played by number, color or notes. A xylophone-style instrument made with world famous Woodstock Chimes tubes, the Chimalong comes with an extra #7 tube, which changes the B (for key of C) to B flat (for key of F), giving greater musical flexibility. Also comes with two mallets & color-coded songbook.
