When used in pairs these colorful castanets are universally accepted by dance artists, music teachers, music therapists, early childhood music teachers and more. Their clackety-clack, crisp sound is comparable to more expensive wooden castanets. What a fantastic price! ~Tereasa

Castanets are great!
These castanets are a great addition to our therapy instrument collection. They have a unique sound and are excellent for addressing fine motor skills.
When you need a castanet sound but don't play castanets....
The plastic castanets have a great sound but are really easy to play. I use them for a number of the songs our band does. The audience loves the quirkiness.
I have these mixed in with other simple percussion for jamming with my daughter. The sound is bright and although I need to tighten the elastic every once in a while, it's easy to tighten them right up.

My young students have a hard time remembering "Castanets" and when they first seem them, call them "clappers," or "seashells." I love the bright colors, and my students love having one in each hand to dance with while they play.
