Our Perspective

Simple in design, these Basic Beat egg shakers can produce a myriad of sounds. Cup one in the palm of one hand and use one in the finger tips of your other and you get two distinct sounds that complement each other. Cup in one hand with fingers closed around the egg for beats one and two then open your fingers for beats three and four to get two totally different sounds for a unique shake rhythm! -- Randy

Start children off early learning rhythm and percussion with Basic Beat’s Egg Shaker. Its rounded shape is the perfect size for little hands to grasp. Buy two, to increase the fun by having one for each hand or being able to share with a friend or family member. When shaken, the pallets on the inside shake similar to a maraca. Change its placement in the hand or vary how many fingers surround it to manipulate the sounds it produces.

Allowed me to affordably provide instruments for students to participate in a drum circle, without each student having a drum.

Would like to purchase a large quantity, oh...maybe 100 or so. But..I would like to have them with custom lettering or a logo.

are these egg shakers better than the jumbo shakers?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2013
Best Answer: I haven't used the jumbo shakers, so I can't compare. But I can give a solid recommendation for these egg shakers. I've used them in an elementary music class setting, but the best test was when I spent 2 years contracting music classes in preschools. Every 30 minutes, several days a week, these were passed out, used by 3- and 4-year-olds, and then tossed (or sometimes thrown!) back into the box. I have never had one break - the seal on these is on top instead of around the center like an Easter egg - they fit in small hands easily, and they sound good for a plastic egg. I've purchased them for my current school AND for my personal collection.

They show 5 different colors. Do you get to choose? I'm assuming you don't get 5 egg shakers for 1.75! Thanks for your help!
* When it gets placed in your cart, there is not an option to choose the color.
Christine on Jun 18, 2016
Best Answer: Thank you for your question. You are correct in assuming that the price is per egg. The eggs come in an assortment of colors. Our fulfillment team picks an equal number of colors that we have available. You may add a note to your order requesting specific colors. However, we cannot guarantee what colors we have in stock at any given time.

can these shakers withstand being put in a dishwahser?
Emily L on Jun 6, 2012
Best Answer: They are not water tight, so problems can arise with putting them in the dishwasher. However, they are very easy to clean and sanitize with anti-bacterial wipes.
