Wind & Brass
Delight your kids with toy wind instruments
Creativity and other cognitive skills flourish when a kid or teen explores a musical instrument. Whether your little one is happily pounding away or your teen is starting a garage band, there are many benefits to playing music. Improving eye-hand coordination, enhancing language development and elevating math ability, music helps kids of all ages master important life skills. Sears offers the best musical instruments for every stage of your child's life.
If you are looking for a terrific starter instrument for your child, you can't go wrong with a harmonica. Since they are easy to handle and they produce sound with just a puff of a breath, kids enjoy experimenting with these little instruments. Harmonicas join guitars and pianos as entry-level instruments, perfect for young kids and beginners. In choosing a harmonica, look for a 10-hole style, and let your kids pick colors or styles that spark their imaginations.
While you may want to start your child on the piano, there are a few other entry-level wind instruments to set your child on a magical musical journey. Consider a more portable instrument such as a flute or trumpet. Both flutes and trumpets offer opportunities for growth toward high school marching bands and jazz bands. Younger kids may enjoy the colorful instrument options while your older kids may want to choose advanced versions of the instruments. Sears has a huge selection of toy trumpets and other toy wind instruments for your child to start early.
If flutes and trumpets aren't their style, clarinets and saxophones also make our list of favorite wind instruments for kids. Sears has beginner clarinets that are colorful, enticing and comfortably sized that your children will want to strike up a band with other kids playing toy drums, trumpets and keyboards. With all of this band practice going on, your budding musicians will soon master the clarinet and will be ready to move on to the saxophone. When shopping for a beginning saxophone, look for a saxophone with a carrying case that is roomy enough to hold the instrument, extra reeds, cleaning swabs and a neck strap.
From toy whistles to saxophones and every wind instrument in between, musical instruments can open up worlds for your kids. Whether you simply encourage your little one's impromptu play marching band or your teen is serious about a musical career, choosing just the right instrument in the appropriate size and style can make all the difference in the world. Bring the joy of music into your kids' lives with any of the dozens of toy and student instruments available at Sears.
