Ages: 3 - 13 yrs.
Manufacturer: B. Toys (by Battat)
Price: $18.69

The Carousel Bells are eight bells ranging from notes C to C connected horizontally to a round center base with a handle to spin the carousel. Each bell is a different color making it easy to learn which bell is which note. Included in the package is a song sheet listing seven different songs and how to play them (more can be downloaded at from the website). The base can be used to store the bells or to support them while playing them on a table top. The mallet used to play the bells can be conveniently snapped to the base during storage. The compact design is lovely and the bell sounds are beautiful, and slightly different depending on how fast it spins. Not only is the packaging recyclable and printed with soy ink, but a portion of B. Toys' profits go toward helping children in poverty, too.
