The Clatter makes a click-clack sound that changes with play and goes from a gentle ripple to a clattering crescendo. Using an up and down movement with both hands the Clatter's segments clap against each other to create a clattery sound. Try different speeds and your movements will soon turn into rhythm. A musical instrument toy, the Clatter provides an ideal introduction to rhythm and music-making and is suitable for group and individual play. Children tend to be very receptive to music as it helps to enhance their sensory perception, auditory skills, bilateral coordination, and cognitive development. Suitable for children 18 months and up.
