Timberdoodle's review
We love these tubes, but not because of their lilting sound. Though perfectly tuned to different musical notes they still are and sound like plastic tubes. They sound a bit sprightly when whacked on a metal post or overturned bucket, a bit dull when thumped on a pillowy thigh. So set aside the idea that your children will use Boomwhackers to produce great musical masterpieces. Instead, consider the three things Boomwhackers do excel at.

First, they are ideal tools for teaching rhythm. Large, at 1 3/4" in diameter, but amazingly lightweight, their bright colors and variety of pitches make learning this important musical skill fun.

Second, the enclosed Whack-A-Doodle-Doo! Songbook with its musical notes color-coded to match the Boomwhackers tubes, enables even the youngest to easily play the songs and learn the fundamentals about reading music at the same time.

Finally, in my opinion the most important reward to using Boomwhackers is what they contribute to social interactions. Their very makeup cries out for group participation and spending time together creating music, however you define it. Unlike gathering around a piano for group singing where there is only one player, Boomwhackers make players of all of us. And unlike harmonicas where many may play together but can't sing while playing, Boomwhackers allow players to sing while they whack. These really are a blast to play and make for hilarious performances for the grandparents or the local nursing home.

Winner of many awards, Boomwhackers are a favorite of music educators around the world and are also used by professional musicians in music therapy. The Whack Pack includes eight rugged Boomwhackers C Major Diatonic tubes, a tube holder that enables you to hang your tubes on the wall, and optional mallets. Unique to the Timberdoodle Boomwhackers Deluxe set is that there are two, instead of one, Whack-A-Doodle-Doo! Songbooks with nineteen familiar children's songs. There are also nine, instead of one, Octavator Tube Caps, which both lower the tones by an octave and allow you to use the tubes as "stamping"tubes which make a much more pleasing sound.
