This folk instrument was reviewed by 40 customers as of date earning it an average customer rating of 4.2 out of 5. Exactly half of the customers gave this the highest score of 5 followed closely by 30% of customers that gave it a score of 4.
The instrument was highly recommended for children. A reviewer who had experience working in the hospital with children found that this worked as a tool in helping soothe children, even those who were in pain. Other customers found that the attention of small children were caught because of the bright colors. Overall, customers were just happy that this also worked as a fun toy for their children or loved ones. It is definitely one that can entertain. A reviewer found this product to be of quality. A customer also got this as a Christmas gift for her cherished one. One reviewer shared that this makes a great “first instrument” since children will be able to shake it and even if they drop it, it will still make sounds.
The downside to this folk instrument was that it did not sound like authentic rain as a couple of reviewers pointed out. A reviewer shared that it was a little bit obvious that it sounded like plastic beads coming down. Another reviewer with a rainmaker also noted that it didn’t actually sound the same, and yet still one other reviewer found that the beads had static when falling down which made them come down a little bit slower. One other reviewer had an issue with its size stating that this 8 inch was too small and that the picture provided for advertisement is unreliable. With it being too small, it provided only a short distance for the beads to fall before one customer had to shake hard for the rest of the beads to fall down before flipping it again.
Children will enjoy playing with this instrument. It is appealing to the eyes and makes a sound like rain that children will find amusing and soothing. Customers have reported that it is a very entertaining toy. Based on the rating, we see overall that reviewers liked this product. We believe that this is a good buy and is best suited for young children. For the price you pay, you will help children with their motor skills as they shake this toy and you will give them an opportunity to hear a different kind of sound from other toys. Plus, children will be delighted with the visual effect of this instrument. This is a recommended buy.
