It always seems that kids are enamored with boisterous toys that talk, sing, dance and espouse animal noises. Unfortunately, those are usually the ones that parents dislike the most.
My aunt gave my babe a Mozart Music Cube ($22) for Christmas and it has been a surprisingly delightful, be it noisy, addition to my tot's toy box.
Unlike her Dora push bus or Baby Jamz chair, this cubical instrument plays Mozart on various instruments – piano, violin, harp and flute. The instrumental box can teach your child about colors and sounds while fine tuning their classical music palette and listening abilities.
