Mini Chimalong is a smaller version of the Chimalong. It comes attached to a beautifully illustrated full-color spiral-bound songbook. Just unfold onto flat surface and you're ready to play. Younger children can match the colors below each note with the color below each tube. Older children can use the same system with the tube numbers. Folds easily for traveling and includes mallet. Striking the tube at the center point will provide the best sound and it is a great way to get your children started in music. Ages 3 and up.
