Music for Kids Pirate Recorder Review

It is definitely Music for Kids and not my poor ears!  My two made quite the racket, but I was very pleased with the quality of the product, the instructions and the price.  I think you get lots for £9.99, all boxed and presented well.  I am actually surprised they can sell it for that price, as it does seem very cheap for so much.  I think it would make a lovely present for Christmas, just perhaps add some ear guards for yourself until they get the hang of it!

It seems a well thought out item, with plenty to encourage an interest in music.  I like that they have simple instructions of how to hold the recorder and how to play musical notes.  The stickers are fun so they can decorate the recorder to their own taste (in a pirate theme in this pack, but there is a princess one for the little ladies!).

You even get a carry bag to keep your recorder safe and a cleaning rod to make sure it’s in tiptop condition.

I would definitely recommend this item.  Just grin and bare the first few attempts your child has.  It is for children aged 4+ and I would say the 5 year old did have more of an aptitude to it than his little brother.  At three his aim was to generate noise and lots of it… the tune was more of a musical screech!

You can find out more about Music for Kids on their website.
