A-Star is great for ages 3+, it’s robust, affordable and most products are brightly coloured unless the traditional look is preferred. In this blog, we feature the newest products to A-Star’s range. The brightest and most quirky percussion instruments from A-Star yet.

By quirky, I mean fruit shaped shakers complete with their very own fruit basket. Personally, my favourite product of the new range. A great way to engage children in music, ensure they have fun and a genius tool for teaching rhythm and timing. A humorous way for children to explore music and learning.
