Review of "Tweenies Sparkly Maracas"
Lucky me I got to choose the category for the library book this month (Gardening) .... But sadly so far only one out of about 20 of my suggestions has been accepted. !!! grrrrr
.These were a freebie. With the children's comic Tweenies.
These were a good freebie to recieve stuck on the front page of the comic .The shakers /maracas are small about 7 inches /118cm long. They are made out of a hard bright pink plastic which has shiny sparkly bits embedded into it. These maracas are bright and attractive to a child
The handle is thin about 3-½ inches/9 cm long. It is just right for a toddler's hand to grip. There is a hollow ball shape at the end this contains some brightly coloured small beads. When this toy is shaken the rattle about and make a sound.
The sound is a gentle shaking noise it could be used to represent rain in lesson or song with your child.
A good rain song is I hear thunder .
I hear thunder I hear thunder ,
Hark dont you hark dont you .
Pitter patter rain drops pitter patter raindrops .
I'm wet through I'm wet through .
So are YOU
sung to Frere Jacka
I think these are suitable for a two three year old to play with , Small children love things that make sounds .
If you have a small baby You could shake these behind your babies head see if he can detect where the sound is coming from ,
Sometimes I will put the maracas in a childs handand gently hold thier hand around the handle and I will help them shake it either to precorded music or to me singing a familiar song.
I hope by doing this the child will be aware that the action they are doing is making the sound..
These are good for all pre school and those up to about the age of 6 .
Many songs can be sung and your child can accompany with these or put some music on and let your child shake and rattle these sparkly shakers. This is a good excersise in listening and playing in time getting the right rhythm.
These maracas are now a couple of months old , have had quite a lot of use , have been dropped and as yet have not broken , for a freebie seem quite well madeDecember 23rd 2006.
went to daughters noticed gdaughter playing with this so it was def a good freebie
