X Is For Xylophone

Last summer, Ryker and I would walk over to the thrift store on a daily basis. He liked to play in the toy section while I shopped. There was always one toy he would play with: a xylophone. It was originally sold at Toys R Us and has Geoffrey the giraffe on it. The mallets were missing so I never bought it. Later in the summer, I found out the store was closing so I went and got the xylophone. I paid .50 He has drum sticks he pounds the bars with but most of the time, he pretends it's a vacuum. After all these months, he still loves his xylophone and even sleeps with it.

Becky, such a deal at fifty cents!! Bless his little heart! I hope he continues to be in love with it. Music can work wonders with children his age!!

Hello.
You got a good deal there. I wish I had learned to play a musical instrument when I was younger...then again, I wouldn't have any time for writing poetry, so I guess things turned out for the best (smile). Cute photo! Thanks for sharing.

You are invited to join me this Saturday May 5th for Blog Hop Saturday!

How sweet. Children usually play with the boxes toys come in than the toys themselves. It does sort of kinda look like a vacuum. Great imagination.~Ames

That's a cute xylophone and an even cuter son!

I still have the Fisher Price one my kids played with when they were little! I love the sound of these...but I'm not such a big fan of the sound of vacuum cleaners! ha!

Thanks for the smile on this Xcellent little link to the letter X.

A+
