I was searching for some musical instruments for Hettie which wouldn’t be too annoying and all plastic…an almost impossible task I hear you say! However, I came across Grasp + Gather’s All Natural Percussion Pack and purchased it for Hettie’s Christmas stocking. It’s been such a joy to see her enjoyment playing with the set I thought I’d share it with you.
I can honestly say, she loves this set and plays with it almost daily. Enclosed within a cotton drawstring bag are:
A Sappan seed shaker – hand tied in Thailand using dried sappan seeds
Bamboo rhythm sticks – 100% natural bamboo from sustainable sources, these sticks are the perfect size for little hands. Their hollow, lightweight nature not only produces a lovely sound but also means they do not hurt little fingers that get caught in the tapping process.
Hosho seed pod maracas – handmade shaker using seed pods from Zimbabwe
A Musical frog – handmade in Northern Thailand using sustainable jackfruit wood and the most adorable musical instrument you will ever come across. It really does sound like a little frog when you run the stick over it’s back.
Bell cups – natural dried woodapple fruits from India that clip-clop when tapped together or when used with a bamboo stick.
Hettie really enjoys giving all the instruments a go and I love how they have all been sourced from natural materials…no plastic in sight, hurrah! Mission accomplished!
