bong! submitted by bfields on October 25, 2012, 9:11pm Line them all up and play them like a xylophone, or hand them out to your friends and family and everyone can play together (thanks to the included 8 mallets). The household toddler enjoyed them immensely. (With supervision!--I doubt they're baby-proof.)

music submitted by ashflowtuff on November 13, 2012, 9:38pm These are awesome. They are separate, but you can line them all up and play. The one downside is that they are really, really loud.

Wonderful addition submitted by Afifa Corrigan on March 25, 2013, 12:00pm These are lots of fun for any age! The notes a labeled to make it easy to use them as a teaching tool as well! My kids loved them, age 3 and 5.

So Fun! submitted by Beth Manuel on June 25, 2013, 3:37pm These Chroma Notes are a blast to play with. I love the sounds they make.

Tap tap drumming style submitted by manz on July 3, 2013, 7:57am Such a fun music tool! It produces a great sound, and is great for all ages to play. No fancy skills or equipment required.

Great sound! submitted by rsivaraj on August 29, 2013, 3:06pm Great musical tonality and lovely sound -- every one in the family enjoyed playing with the chroma notes!

incredible! submitted by lollycandy on August 15, 2014, 5:17pm the sound that is produced is very loud and clear!

nice sound submitted by monkk on June 12, 2015, 3:08pm Kids love these! I like them too, because the sound they produce is nice and big, not that tinny sound I'm used to from some xylophones. Great music tool.

cool! submitted by smgop on August 16, 2015, 7:53pm would be neat for a classroom!

All ages submitted by shosh.lenski on August 21, 2015, 9:35am These are great for all ages. My 9 month old and 4 year old both love making music on them

all ages submitted by lgpat on August 24, 2015, 8:33pm Fun for all ages.

Great Instrument submitted by Meginator on August 5, 2017, 9:55pm The Chroma-Notes are wonderful! The sound quality is excellent and they are very versatile for players of different ages and skill levels. I love the fact that you can physically rearrange the notes to create different melodic possibilities. I will definitely check these out again.

So fun for kids and grownups! submitted by KOH on June 15, 2018, 8:33pm We checked these out recently and the whole fam had fun!

best tool for check out submitted by KimB on July 20, 2018, 10:05pm per one year old: this is the best tool available for checkout. it can provide a distraction to almost any oncoming tantrum. it is especially fun to play *while* your big brother is trying to play.

loud and fun submitted by sophia_2005 on August 16, 2018, 11:08am quite loud, but really fun. Can make quite a few tunes too

So Much Fun submitted by Whitetnchina on July 22, 2020, 10:02am My kids thoroughly enjoyed this!

Like a handbell choir submitted by jibkidder on June 16, 2022, 10:02pm Get enough kids together and give them each 1 note and set them loose

great for kids submitted by Aimless on August 2, 2022, 9:14am my kids could play music on these every day

Great tone, fun to play submitted by Diananana on June 15, 2023, 2:17pm Chroma-notes have a very pleasing tone quality. They're color-coordinated with Boom-whackers. I've used them with young singers to play simple chord accompaniments. The only drawback is that one is limited to the 8 notes of the C scale, which severely limits the tunes one can play. Several that are playable are Twinkle, Hot cross buns, and Joy to the world.
