We often use this tambourine at school in music sessions (well we call it music). Bontempi is a well known Italian manufacturer of children’s musical instruments.
We have had this Bontempi tambourine for several years now it is quite a sturdy construction.

The tambourine has a wooden shell /wall and a natural membrane. Around the wooden shell there are 5 slots each with two jingles inserted. Around the top of the shell just under the head there is a blue ribbon.

The depth of the wooden shell is about 5cm. The head measures about 19cm in circumference. It weighs about .22kg

This tambourine is quite simple for a child/or adult to hold. I think it’s suitable for anyone over the age of 3 years old. When holding it, it feels like a proper instrument not a toy.

Playing is easy a tambourine is one of the easiest instruments. Just hold it in one hand and tap the skin with the other.

The sound which this tambourine makes is good better than the plastic skin ones. Sounds can be varied by where and the way the skin is hit. Scratch it for a completely different sound tambourine.

The children that I work with love playing the tambourine we use it to sing along to; “the wheels on the bus” is still popular.
We use it to impress the parents at school shows.
The sounds from this Bontempi tambourine are versatile they can be used for –a-l-m-o-s-t- any tune. And the sound is not harsh on the old ears.

I looked on line and found the Bontempi classic wooden tambourine for £8.08 at http://www.tesco.com and http://www.amazon.co.uk £5.99 at http://www.otherlandtoys.co.uk wow at http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bontempi-classic-wooden-tambourine-rrp-8-99-now-3-65-amazon-1212887 its £3.65

Yes I would recommend this Bontempi classic tambourine
