The new Symphany in B

John Crane’s Symphony in B received positive recognition at the Toy Fair this year.

The electrical toy has a choice of 13 instruments which can be stored inside and 15 songs. Children choose six of these instruments and place them on the orchestra pit and hear them get played together. The mix and match game has lights to help teach children which section an instrument belongs in; woodwind, brass, percussion, keyboard or string.
