Stir xylophones are such fun instruments and always a favorite among my students. This is a high quality instrument and is a good size for elementary school and up. It's a little large for young preschoolers, but most are still able to manipulate it. You won't be disappointed in this item.
This is a neat percussion effect. We have used it a lot with the younger ones. When things are being mixed or stirred in a story we are reading, when we need a cool sound effect for a transition, and so many more.<br /><br />It has proved to be very easy for the kids to play. The build quality seems alright. It probably would not stand up to a lot of dropping from higher heights, however because of the handle and proper classroom procedures, this is not a concern for me, nor a reason to advise against it.
