Wooden Toy Wednesday - John Crane Tidlo Rainbow Maracas

For my wooden toy Wednesday this week I am going to tell you all about John Crane's Tidlo Rainbow Maracas. They come in a variety of colours & are perfect for helping your child to learn about rhythm, we have been using ours with the Tidlo Rainbow Recorder making noisy lovely music. They are suitable for children ages 1+, my daughter age 14 months loves shaking them and if we also shake she will try to copy what we are doing. My son who loves sensory stimulation also loves to shake them so he can listen to the noise. They are on average about 14.5cm in length & are all painted in bright colours.

John Crane have given me 5 single Maracas to give to 5 of my readers, if you would like to enter please fill out the rafflecoptor form below.
