The Singing Fundamentals Kit By Lee Gwozdz Plastic tote with various toys and handbook
The Singing Fundamentals kit includes toys, a 28-page instructional handbook on how to use the toys for vocal technique and development and a plastic storage bin. Use the toys to help with vowel formation, breathing, diphthongs, head voice, crescendo-decrescendo, breath control, dynamics, final consonants, phrasing, upbeat entrances, initial attacks, etc.
Toys included: Chinese yo-yo, magic spring, Mr. Pooch tennis ball, Hoberman Mini-Sphere, foam rocket, stuffed toy, paddle and grip ball set, movie slate, punching dinosaur puppet, squeaky hammer and collapsible animal finger toy.

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.
