Green Tones

Green Tones was founded on the belief that every child is born with a connection to music and with the nurturing touch from parents, that special relationship to sound grows. Not only is music an integral part of fun playtime for children, but also central for all stages of cognitive development. Every time you sing and make music with your child, or enable them to do so themselves, they are creating neuro-connections in their brains that grow stronger with every bang of a drum or shake of a maraca. Similar to language, this connection flourishes when performed regularly. As part of HOHNER, Inc., a professional musical instrument company with over 160+ years in the making, Green Tones encourages active music making - helping children to develop their cognitive abilities.

Each musical instrument that Green Tones offers is designed for different stages of your child's life. From shaker animals made for smaller hands to bear-shaped xylophones that help your baby grip and bang, these award-winning and adorable designs are a perfect way to encourage play and bond with your little one. Simple wooden features with all natural and eco-friendly materials help stimulate baby's brain differently than plastic-light up toys. These discovery toys are great for playpen time, sibling bonding, home-schooling lessons, and even in-school music classes.
