Children love music, and it's even better if you can make it yourself. That's why many people buy musical instruments for children to play. Musical instruments for children are both fun for children and at the same time it is also developmental for them to learn about the rhythms of music and learn more about their musical and creative abilities. Children's musical instruments are slightly smaller than traditional instruments, and naturally easy to handle. On this page we have collected a lot of musical instruments for children, as well as special musical instruments for small children.

  • Rhythms develop language

    When children sing and hear how language and rhythm fit together, it helps boost their language development. Many children can sing songs at a very early age because the language is allowed to "flow" in a different way. Supplementing this with gestures is extra fun and developmental for the child.

  • Music improves memory

    When children are stimulated at an early age, musicals help to improve their learning ability and memory.

  • Music and song create peace

    Do you remember your mother's and father's bedtime songs? There might be a reason. Music helps to create a calm atmosphere around a child. A song can make a baby relax and listen to a quiet song.

  • Music creates community

    Many dare a little more when the music is playing. When we dance together to a song, it's just so much more fun than dancing without music. In this way, music helps to create community, so we can listen and dance to the same song together.

  • Music and movement cannot be separated

    For children, music and movement are inseparable. You often see children jumping in time to their cries. Very young babies can "jump" when they hear music, which is the wonderful spontaneous movement to music. Movement is healthy and good for children, as well as adults, so that's just another good reason to turn on the music.
