Editor's Review

Toddlers and preschoolers can make music with the Zoo Jamz Doggy Xylophone and Animal Rhymes Storytime.

With a mallet attached right on the dog’s collar, the Zoo Jamz Doggy Xylophone is the perfect way for budding musicians ages 1.5 to 4 to compose their own songs. In Free Play mode, kids can tap each of the eight colorful bars to hear individual music notes and create music. In Follow Me mode, the music bars will light up and the voice will guide kids through a sequence of notes. This takes kids through three levels of play. And kids will play a song note by note by following the lights in Learn to Play mode. This also has three levels of play. The toy come with two AA batteries and two volume levels. 

Open up the Animal Rhymes Storytime book to go on a musical journey and sing nursery rhymes. The cover of the book has a lenticular design so that it looks like the animals are moving when you move the book from side to side. Textured tabs make it easy for little ones to flip the book pages. Every time a page is turned, the book lights up and plays music, sounds, and phrases. Press the light-up sun button to learn about animals and their sounds, or press the music notes button to hear music and melodies. The carry handle and compact size make this easy to take on the go. Two AAA batteries are included. The toy has two levels of volume. This toy is for ages 9 to 36 months.
