    Such an amazing resource! We absolutely love our Gumnut Music bag. The ebook full of resources which is provided also offers such great ideas on how to extend my child’s music play. A lot of thought has gone into this music bag and I highly recommend it to anyone. It is a popular choice in our playroom!

    This music bag and accompanying Play Book/tracks has truely brought magic into our home! Every other day my little man asks to sit on the floor and “make music” together where we “sing the words”. It offers such rich guidance to encourage music and play with purpose beyond our usual random banging and shrieking! And don’t get me started on the puppets…we’re a little addicted!

      Haha we’re a little addicted too. We use our puppets daily, they never fail to bring a smile to a child’s face. We love that our eBook has you singing with your little one. Keep it up!

    This is such a magical music bag full of quality instruments. The bells are a favourite here and the sound of the jiggle is loved so much by both kids. This is such a wonderful bag and would make a perfect gift. So many possibilities with the finger puppets too.

    • Louise Lindsay

      We love the gift of music too. Our finger puppets are perfect for those little fingers. xx

    What a beautiful resource! My kids absolutely love all their instruments and their little puppet from this music bag. They were so excited opening it for the first time and discovering everything inside. They play with their instruments everyday. I also love the e-book! It has so many wonderful ideas with different ways to incorporate the instruments into songs and nursery rhymes. Highly recommend this product!

      Thank you so much, Lauren. We are thrilled to hear that your tribe is making music every day!
