This exotic shaker instantly invites further investigation! Children are fascinated by the heft, feel, and light clattering sound of this rattle. A reminder that native people waste little and honor the animal world. Percussion folk instruments allow children to create their own music and keep the beat to favorite recordings. This is a real instrument (not a toy).
Jamtown, a Fair Trade organization, imports this percussion instrument from Bolivia. Each one is crafted by hand from natural materials and is a work of art. Includes a story card summarizing its cultural origins. 7½" diameter. Sized to fit on an arm or ankle.
Ages 3 and up.
