4 Reasons to Add Musical Instruments to Your Store's Selection

Sep 18, 2017

If your store’s selection doesn’t include any musical toys yet, then you may be missing out. Musical instruments designed for young children sell well, because these are meaningful toys. Music provides a lot of benefits for a young child’s development, and their parents won’t mind purchasing an instrument, even if they would be tempted to object to buying other toys. We can think of four reasons to add musical instruments to your store’s addition.

1. Toys Should Be Meaningful

When it comes to toys, there are many different options. When adults purchase toys for children, they’d like to think they’re doing something for their children’s development. Parents are hesitant to spend money on something that will only entertain their children for a limited time without offering any additional value. And that’s precisely why it’s a good idea to stock specialty toys instead of highly advertised toys that are currently in fashion. 

The great thing about musical instruments is that you know they will teach children invaluable skills, but the child still views them as a fun toy. It’s a win-win situation. It also beats listening to children use other items to make music with, such as banging on the walls or on your pots and pans. 

2. Instruments Encourage a Love of Music Early On

Music soothes the soul, but it also makes people happy. You’ll observe young children dance uninhibitedly, even without receiving formal music lessons. There’s just something about listening to music, making music, and dancing to music that puts a smile on your face.

Parents don’t have to be musical themselves to encourage their children to make music. In fact, little ones will naturally gravitate towards xylophones, keyboards, and flutes. Children even figure out how to make music without owning musical instruments as they experiment with banging toys together and creating sound with their own voices. To make their musical adventures more meaningful and the sounds more pleasant to the parents, it’s a good idea to add some of DJECO’s colorful musical instruments to your store’s selection.

3. Kids Love DJECO’s Musical Instruments

When you look at the selection of DJECO’s musical instruments, you can see right away why they’re so appealing to children. They’re beautifully decorated, colorful, and built to last. These wooden toys are keepsakes, collectibles, and fun toys all in one. Parents and children will appreciate the unique artwork that goes into each of these instruments. Fortunately, they’re not just fun to look at, they’re enjoyable to make music with as well.

While parents can purchase musical toys at other stores, you can stock something unique they’ve never seen before. For example, look at this beautiful whistle that’s shaped like a bird. It’s highly unlikely that your customers have ever seen a musical instrument quite like this. Since whistling is a skill that takes maturity and practice to acquire, this bird will be a huge hit with young children. 

4. Music Connects People

Many toys are created for individual playtime. After all, toys often have the job to replace adult-child interactions, keeping the child happy while the parents take care of other things around the house. Musical instruments are different. They can help people come together, even if one is assigned the passive role of listener. Musical instruments encourage children to get creative, coming up with new tunes or perfecting a tune they like. Children may even spend a lot of their time practicing a favorite song to perform it later in front of their favorite grown-ups. 

How to Encourage a Love of Music

Musical instruments are probably one of the best toys to display in your store for your customers to play with. Children love making music, and parents will immediately wonder why they haven’t thought of purchasing a tambourine or harmonica for their little one yet. Encouraging a love of music is best done by starting early. 

When kids are old enough to go to school, their parents may enroll them in music lessons. However, the idea that making music is fun and worth spending time on must be formed much sooner than that. Young children don’t need to be forced to make music, either. All you have to do is give them the opportunity to create their own joyful tunes. Before you know it, they will be dancing and twirling around, too. Since music encourages whole body movement, it fosters active play as well as creativity in young children.
