Toddlers love the sound of shakers and these mini-sized maracas are so toddler-friendly. The handles are easy to grip and the maracas are extremely lightweight. Sold in like-color pairs, they encourage toddlers to use both hands (bilateral motion) to create rhythms. Holding and shaking the maracas encourages development of fine motor skills. Of course don’t tell your toddler how much they are learning when they play—they’ll be too busy having fun to notice! -Melissa

Very pretty. Sound pretty good
Sound great and good size for small hands
Great quality. Used successfully in our group of 0-5 year olds. The younger ones especially liked these light weight, great sounding, instruments.
The maracas are 5 inches long. We like the maracas when working with infants and toddlers who are blind or have low vision. The two colors are not overwhelming and offer visual contrast. The maracas are fairly light so little hands can hold them.
