Review: Bigjigs Coloured Xylophone

All children love to make music and both LP and Little Man are no different. So when Bigjigs sent us their beautiful Coloured Xylophone to review I knew it would be an instant hit. Like all Bigjigs toys, the Coloured Xylophone is well made and timeless, the sort of toy that can be handed down to siblings or even future generations.


The Bigjigs Coloured Xylophone comes with two beaters and has handy storage holes underneath the xylophone, making it easy to store and having less chance of losing the beaters too. The Coloured Xylophone is really nice and compact, the perfect addition to any playroom.


Unlike other instruments, the Coloured Xylophone is actually in tune and can be used to play actual music – rather than most musical toys that purely make noise. It’s lovely listening to Little Man go through the scale of notes when he concentrates or running the beaters along the xylophone to do one continuous sound.


Both LP and Little Man love using the Coloured Xylophone to make music and over time they are getting more and more tuneful – rather than just whacking it. It’s a really lovely toy and it’s great to see them be musically creative, something that doesn’t happen often at home.


The Bigjigs Coloured Xylophone is there perfect toy for any child and I’m sure it’s aimed at age 3+ purely so that it’s used for music rather than just being hit randomly. I love that the volume changes with how hard you hit the xylophone and I know, in time, the children will learn to play the xylophone properly, changing volume as well as pitch.


The Bigjigs Coloured Xylophone has been a great addition to our home, one the children really love and I know that many children would be as excited by the Coloured Xylophone as LP and Little Man are.

The Bigjigs Coloured Xylophone has an RRP of £13.99

    This looks beautiful! We have a small one and love making music on it but I think we need this one in our lives now!
