The big gifts are great but who doesn’t love a holiday stocking? They’re a win-win for kids and parents.
The psychology of the stocking:
- For kids: the joy and satisfaction of acquiring multiple gifts at once.
- For parents: the opportunity to save $$$ by filling them with fun but affordable items.
But did you know there are plenty of engaging, educational, and lasting stocking stuffers under $5?
That’s where Kindermusik comes in.
We’re ringing in the season with our Top 5 Under $5 Musical Stocking Stuffers!
Musical Stocking Stuffers under $5
For our tiniest gift recipients, you can’t go wrong with the ratchet roller. As soon as baby can grip, this instrument is a sensory playground! The textures and sounds provide endless exploration in the early months, while older babies can strengthen their hand muscles by rotating the egg-shaped piece. We call it the “occupier”.
Another baby-approved gift, the mini cage bell is perfect for grippers and teethers, and has the added bonus of a delightful and soft sound. With a fully enclosed bell, this instrument is safe for infants and provides a lot of satisfaction for young tots who are just learning to respond to musical cues. Your little can really ring in the new year with this one!
A Kindermusik class favorite! These colorful, flowy scarves are ideal for everything from peek-a-boo to imaginary play. Hide, reveal, swirl, and parachute with these lightweight best-sellers. Can you picture the dance parties?
Do you have a train fanatic at home? This well-made whistle is the ultimate train-lover gift! Toddler hands can securely grip the instrument, and within a few tries, they’ll create an authentic steam engine sound in the four-chambered whistle. All aboard!
We love these fun (and festive!) hand-held instruments. Ideal for older toddlers, the 1-bell jingle sticks are made with a sturdy wooden handle and produce a clear sound for budding musicians. If your kiddo is ready to form the family band, this would be the perfect starter kit!
OK, it’s really our top 6. We didn’t want to leave out percussion! Our Lummi Sticks are colorful, all wood, and the absolute best gift for little rhythm lovers. Durable and engaging, young ones love to tap or scrape these sticks together to create their own library of sounds. Think of them as the tip-toe gift to the drum set.
