Harmonicas: The Harmonious Musical Instrument

When you have kids, talking, screaming, beeping, and blaring products are part of the program — even those that mysteriously turn on in the middle of the night. Most youngsters delight in the sounds created by banging a drum, playing a horn, or clashing symbols. While the actions benefit a wee one's development, they can leave moms and dads with mind-numbing headaches.

While we were vacationing in Lake Tahoe, my husband picked up a couple of harmonicas ($5) for our daughter and son to entertain themselves on the car ride home. After the kids blew into them a few times, I realized that no matter how novice the player, the metal instrument is melodic. A tot may need to be fine-tuned and musically gifted to play a violin, but on the harmonica anything goes. My lil ones soon discovered how to perform duets, and they love carrying them around in their lil blue cases.
