Amazing xylophone with keys of different tree species arranged in an octave
Usually, a xylophone consists of keys of different lengths to play music. However, the keys of this Forest Choir are all the same length. The individual sounds are derived from the different densities of each tree species. The respective keys have the species name branded on them with a hot iron, which makes it easy to learn about trees while playing. Since they are made of domestically-produced solid material and finished without a coating, it is safe for children to play. Forest Choir won the “Good Toy Award” in 2009.
