Boomwhackers: Boomophone XTS Whack Pack Review by Lisa Barthuly

Whacky Music, Inc.
2085 Mountain Rd
Sedona, AZ 86336

Boomwhackers is fun music making! This is a completely unique product that will add some serious smiles to your homeschool! Boomwhackers are color-coded musical tubes that you can create your own music with--either serious music or silly fun music. You can play Boomwhackers like a xylophone or whack them on your knee. You can even play them high in a tree!

The Whack Pack comes with an 8-tube Boomwhackers "C" Major Diatonic set, a Boomwhacker Whacker, the XyloTote Tube Holder, the Whack-A-Doodle-Doo Songbook, an Octavator Tube Cap, and instructions. These are so neat! Whether you play with them for fun or serious musical instruction, you can't help but enjoy them!

The Boomwhackers website also has all kinds of helpful downloads and extras to accompany this pack. They offer a full range of materials for teaching with Boomwhackers, for musical and/or physical education. They work for one child, a small group, or a whole family. Our children love them. We surely recommend them!
