Though not always music to everyone's ears, children love to play with toy instruments. Whether shaking a simple rattle, pounding a makeshift drum made from a kitchen pot and a wooden spoon, or hitting the keys of an elaborate toy piano, young musicians delight in the sounds they can make. Musical toys have served a source of entertainment for hundreds of years, promoting motor skills, creative expression, and, perhaps most of all, noise!
