A beautiful mind begins with music. In the womb, an unborn child responds to music and melodies. The pull towards music never ends. A baby is soothed by melodic sounds. A toddler can spend hours making music of his of his own. A child is drawn to her own style and enhances her talents.
There is a wide array of choices when looking at music toys. First, consider your child’s age. A baby toy is designed to develop and enhance a growing mind. Music toys for older children are geared towards honing a gift and talent. Also, consider your child’s interests. Does he like listening to music? Is she restless until she’s making her own songs? Finding the right toy is easy when you know what you’re looking for and Most Popular Kids Toys makes it easier by breaking it down to different categories.
Are you looking for the perfect music toy to introduce your preschooler to music?

Great Travel Toy
By Mommy Kind
March 7, 2009
We took this toy with us for a three hour car ride with our 1 year old son, and it kept him entertained for at least 1-2 hours…It’s not extremely loud…It’s nice and small, too, so it fits into a purse, diaper bag, or tote bag very easily.
No more going after Mom’s cell phone…

By Lacy Armitage
I bought this for my niece …she fell in love with it. Before her favorite toy was her moms cell phone but once she got this she choose it over the phone…
This music lover is happy with the length of the tunes…
November 9, 2014
By Dr. Eason
My baby loves music…What I like about it is the music plays for more than 10 seconds as opposed to other musical toys. I think each tunes plays for about 30 to 45 seconds. It keeps her attention especially when we are riding or I’m working around the house…
There is nothing more exciting than watching a little one’s face light up delight when they discover something for the first time!

A Nice Toy, August 5, 2014

This review is from: Hape – Pound & Tap Bench with Slide out Xylophone (Toy)
This is a great combo-toy for any parent looking to have their child build hand-eye coordination and get some exposure to music and colors as well.
Great toy, July 30, 2014
This review is from: Hape – Pound & Tap Bench with Slide out Xylophone (Toy)
Sure, the xylophone isn’t in tune at all. Who cares? This toy is great and honestly I don’t think baby cares one bit that it sounds just like noise, in fact that might make it more fun since she generally just loves making noise right now. We got this for our girl when she was around 10 months and she loves it. I have to push the balls down a bit to get her started since she’s not quite strong enough to pound them all the way through yet. She loves to pull out the xylophone tray and put it back in, she uses the hammer on everything. She crawls after the balls when they roll down the ramp and out. It’s by far her favorite toy.
