Post Kids Musical Toys - Can Help Your Childs' Development
by: Martin V Algra

It may help to explain my passion for kids musical toys and my belief in the roll that they play in children’s early development by sharing a brief overview of my early childhood and teenage years.

Although I was not brought up in a musical family and can’t remember much about any musical toys I may have had , but I was able to play around on my grandmother’s piano very early in my life, which I enjoyed very much. Although I could not read music I had a good ear and could pick up a tune quite easily. I only wish I had pursued the lessons I started and learnt to read music properly, but like most kids I could always find something better to be doing.

It wasn’t until I reached my middle teens that I discovered I had a natural rhythm, timing and a desire to learn to play drums. It probably helped that I was growing up in London in the 60’s when the Beatles, Rolling Stones and dozens of other groups hit the scene.

I acquired my first used set of drums when I was 17 and within a year had joined a band, performed at some amazing gigs, alongside some very popular artists of the time and even performed in front of Royalty. I continued to play in various different bands for about 12 years until I gave up my sticks to concentrate on my main career.

Having benefited from my early involvement with music, I have a great appreciation of the benefit that kids musical toys can provide in a child’s early development and in later life. This has also been confirmed by studies carried out by early childhood specialists who have found that children who received regular music lessons over several months showed a marked improvement over those that had not. I have actually been able to witness this development now that I have a beautiful granddaughter and have had the time to watch her reaction when introduced to some of the wonderful musical toys available today, as she has grown from a baby to a very active 2 year old.

I am also aware from personal experience, how difficult it can be for busy parents or grand parents to be able to take the time necessary to research and find the best and most appropriate children’s musical toys. I would certainly suggest that before purchasing any toy, you take the time to visit a good independent musical toy review site to see what is on offer and how it has been received by other parents.
