Cymbals with Handles
Shake Rattle and Dance
I enjoyed the durability of the plastic, however, several of the metal shakers came apart, They are easy to fix, and I simply used a small dab of sticky glue to hold the silver rod in place.
Preschoolers love to shake these to different rhythms and like magic, they start dancing and laughing. Lots of fun! The different colors are educational as well.

Fun! Fun! Fun!
I bought these for my 3rd grade students to use as rhythm instruments during a school singing performance. They worked great! We practiced with "2 finger clapping" on the off beat, then transferred that skill to tapping the cymbals on 2 fingers. Because of the handle, they were easy to pass out and collect quickly and relatively, quietly.

Jingle, Jangle Jollies!
These were a big hit with the 2-3 year olds in our nursery at church. We started singing time this week having the children each grab a pair to shake while they sang, and they just thought it was the best thing ever!

I did not even open the bags. Too small and easily crushed, detached, etc. Even for big kids. Can I send these back and exchange (along with tiny kazoos) for either larger kazoos or Velcro wrist band bells?

Good item but could be better.
I will be using these instruments with children aged 18months to 5years. I ordered two bags and found some of the metal edges very rough/sharp so I will have to remove several of them from the supply. I think instead of using two pieces of metal squeezed together (look like bottle caps), two separate one disk pieces of metal would suffice and maybe get the same sound result.

The PERFECT noise maker!
We had a belly dancer at our party and these were the PERFECT accompaniment to add to our Persian themed party! Oriental Trading, I love you!

Good, but could be better!
The bells were okay, but they really have not held up to the use we have for them. We have used them only a few times and they are breaking. Maybe could be a little sturdier and a bit longer. The colors are nice abd the bells are okay. I probably would go for a different bell set if buying more than these for any other project.

These were a great addition to our music center. Our kiddos love them!

Good value but quiet
These are a good deal for the price. They are good quality and colorful. However, they don't produce much sound! The handles are very short.

Great for little hands!
These are great for little hands to add some percussion! I will use them at my school's Christmas concert to add some light percussion to a few of our songs. Perfect size and sound!
