In my early childhood classes, I love using the wood agogo to make sound effects. If you scrape it along the ridges, you can pretend that it is a frog. If you alternate tapping each side, it sounds like the clip-clop of a horse or the tick-tock of a clock. Of course it can be used for rhythmic activities too, but the sound effects are my favorite! -Jenny
The Basic Beat two tone agogo block is perfect for not only keeping rhythm, but various sound effects as well. It produces two distinct full sounds by striking with the included mallet. You may also use the mallet to scrape along the ridges.

This agogo has a great sound and seems pretty sturdy for getting a lot of usage. It is a bit bulky to do fast sounds with it but I guess I just need more practice.
Better than expected!
At such a reasonable price, I had low expectations for the quality of this little instrument. It was delivered promptly, was of much better quality than expected, and made a great stocking stuffer for our Music Director!
Fun percussion instrument
My clients love this instrument for the fun sounds it makes, interesting look and all the different ways it can be played. Easy to play too!
