Seeing Lee Gwozdz work with his 'toys' I immediately realized the potential in these learning aids. Eager to use them myself, and spread the word to my colleagues in Sweden!

I was in a workshop @ a choral festival where the facilitator used the kit to demonstrate her strategies for teaching young voices.

Have you found this set to be worth the money?

BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! My students are loving the toys so far; these singing friends really speak to students of all challenges and abilities. And they ask about Mr. Pooch and Poppin' Pig (collapsible animal) when I see them outside my classroom! :-) Fabulous, user-friendly lessons for each toy as well. I've found other purposes for some of the toys since I teach kindergartners.
