At Sam Ash Indianapolis, we recently started a pre-school music program called Little Sammies, and the teacher is using one of these kits to introduce rhythm and percussion to 3-5 year old. She's been raving about the kit and the selection of instruments in there, perfect for little budding percussionists. The fruit shakers are of course a lot of fun for the kids. The carrying case is a bonus to keep all the instruments in and easy carry around. This set is both great for educational purposes, but I think would also make a great gift for any kid who shows an interest in music at an early age.
