Introduced in 1986, our Chimalong is a consistent best seller. Only from Woodstock!
Recommended for its educational value by John Sebastian, Marilyn Horne, Andrˆš© Watts, Peter Shickele, and the late Jim Henson. Tuned to C Major, the Chimalong can be played by number, color, or notes. A xylophone-style instrument made with world-famous Woodstock Chimes tubes, the Chimalong comes with an extra #7 tube, which changes the B (for the key of C) to B flat (for the key of F), giving greater musical flexibility. Also comes with two mallets & color-coded songbook.
The Chimalong is a multi-award winner:
Parents' Choice Gold Award winner
Parents' Choice Classic Award Winner
Parents' Choice Top 25 Toys of 25 Years Award winner
Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Blue Chip/Best Toy Award winner
Fat Brain Toy Award winner
My grandkids (2, 3 and 5) can barely acknowledge me when they first come over. "Where's the Chimalong?" Lovely way to learn see music and for two kids, one had left side, other takes notes on right side.
For a child's instrument, the Chimalong has wonderful tone and quality. My 6-year old grandson loves music and I know he will be so excited with this! It is something he will not outgrow anytime soon.
