Hape DJ Mix & Spin Studio

While this super-fun music toy (a tried-and-tested CAMP favorite) says "ages 1 to 5" on the box," to be fair, everyone in the house is going to want a turn with this thing. Mix sounds, play with beats, even add scratch effects and fun noises (meow!) just like the real mixmasters do. And beware: This toy has been known to cause spontaneous dance parties.

Hape Mini Band Set

You're never too young to rock! Grab one of these musical instruments and let the music flow. Explore the different sounds of a rainmaker, tambourine, rattle, and xylophone. Once you've mastered the basics in banging and shaking, move on to some strumming and test out your ukelele skills. There's a whole world of sounds out there to explore! (Roadies and tour bus not included.)

ABC/DC: A Rock & Roll Inspired Alphabet

Forget about "A is for apple." In this book of rock 'n roll, A is for AC/DC! Dive into the world of rock 'n roll superstars with this book about the best rock legends of all time. As you master the rockin' ABCs, you'll pick up the names of the greatest rock bands in the world — both equally important in any education! 

Little Likes Kids Musical Crossroads Puzzle

With this musical present, you won't have to worry about it being too loud. The only noise that will come from this toy is all the cheers of triumph after finishing this 72-piece musical puzzle. It's the perfect gift to get those musical creative juices flowing. 

Welcome to the Symphony

Want an inside look how a symphonic orchestra comes together? The interactive book Welcome To The Symphony introduces kids to the players, instruments, and sounds of a full orchestra. You'll learn what it takes to be a conductor, how to behave in the audience, and about the different sections of the orchestra. Plus, the book comes with a 19-button sound panel, so you can enjoy some music while you read along.

Mukikim Rock & Roll It Rainbow Piano

Imagine showing Mozart a Mukikim Rock & Roll It Rainbow Piano — something tells me his mind would have been blown. This 49-key portable piano is a big upgrade on your standard-issue eighteenth-century musical prodigy's harpsichord, with multiple demo songs, a wide range of keyboard tones, echo and sustain pedals, and best of all, headphones. Just think of the hits Mozart could have created with this piano at his disposal!

Mukikim Rock & Roll It Code Drum

This portable drum kit uses a color-coded drumpad system to help you learn the basics of playing the drums — no space-hogging drum kit required. Once you get the hang of it, you can play along with the accompaniment tracks, and even record your own demos! Plus, you can connect the set to headphones, making it a win-win for you and your neighbors.

Singing Machine Superstar Bluetooth Sing-Along System

Word on the street is that it's next to impossible to grab tickets to the hottest act in town. Luckily, you'll have no problem getting front-row seats — since this show is happening right in your living room! Grab any of our favorite karaoke mics and sets to quickly transform your family room into a sold-out arena show. Madison Square Garden's got nothing on your couch! 

Urbanears Plattan II Bluetooth Headphones

This one's just as much for the adults as the kids. The Urbanears Plattan II Bluetooth Headphones let your little one listen to their music on repeat without hogging the family playlist, so now you only have to hear "We Don't Talk About Bruno" five times a day instead of 20.   

Sphero Specdrums

Have you ever thought about how colors seem to have certain sounds? Like blue sounds quiet, while red can be very loud? Test out your color-music theories with the Sphero Specdrums — the innovative musical instrument connects with an app to bring colors to life with a simple tap. All you have to do is slip on the app-connected ring and tap away.

LOOG Mini Guitar

Want to be known among the greats like Prince and Jimi Hendrix? Then you'll want to add this Loog Mini Guitar to your bday present list. The mini guitar is perfect for little ones who are just getting the hang of instrument: the mini guitar plays just like a full-sized guitar but only has three strings, so finger placement is much easier for tiny rockers in training. You'll be solo-ing at the bridge in no time.

Skoogmusic Skoog 2.0 Tactile Musical Interface

What's a Skoog exactly? It's whatever instrument you want it to be — piano, drums, guitar, kazoo. Just connect it to your tablet and let the creativity flow! Tap, twist, and squeeze the Skoog and listen as the music of your imagination comes to life. Who knows, with a little practice, you could be the first winner of a Grammy for playing the Skoog! 

LEGO Dots Pineapple Pencil Holder

Your creative, imaginative, arty kid shouldn’t be keeping the pens and pencils they use to write their next hit song in a boring old canister — they need something that suits their vibrant personality; something they made themselves. Something like this quirky LEGO Dots Pineapple Pencil Holder with an enclosed sorting tray.
