Our Perspective

Toddlers love the sound of shakers and these mini-sized maracas are so toddler-friendly. The handles are easy to grip and the maracas are extremely lightweight. Sold in like-color pairs, they encourage toddlers to use both hands (bilateral motion) to create rhythms. Holding and shaking the maracas encourages development of fine motor skills. Of course don’t tell your toddler how much they are learning when they play—they’ll be too busy having fun to notice!  -Melissa


Introduce your toddler to the fascinating world of percussion with Basic Beat Maracas. These maracas are specially designed for toddlers by being incredibly lightweight and feature small, easy to hold handles. They’re a great way for children to learn about rhythm and percussion at the same time. And because they’re designed by Basic Beat you know their construction is child-friendly and rigorously tested by music educators.



  • Included: Pair of Maracas
  • Age: +18 months
  • Color: Colors may vary and colors shown may not be available
  • 4.25” (l) x 1” (w)

I bought these maracas before and our toddler loves them. I would like to receive a color other than Yellow this time.
Domenica G on May 31, 2012
I would not get these again as they broke easily.
Ann B on May 7, 2012
I chose all of these items on the recommendation of a professional music teacher who happens to be a very good friend. She knows from teaching experience and from her own grandchildren that children under the age of 3 love all the items in my order.

He has the little musical eggs some one gave him and loves them> he is almost 8 months and loves to shake shake. I was not clear about the size of toddler/kids or difference but I like that he will have two to be able to use two hands at once.

How big are these?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Not sure of the exact length, but I would guess about 5 inches. The maraca head is maybe about 1 and 1/2 inches wide. I like them a lot - I think they make a nice full sound, and they feel good in your hand. I bought them for my nieces and they love them. I'll probably order a few for my classroom this year as well.
How sturdy are these? We've had other ones shatter easily,
Mary B on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I love these and I've never had one shatter. I use them in all my early childhood music classes with no problem. The worst issue is the colors are random so I got a lot of pinks which cause SO many tears with the girls. All of my pink maracas have been "on vacation" for the last two years. :) So they aren't really usable. Good buy, though!
I got the small wooded Best Beat maracas but they are very light and Im afraid many older residents won't hear their sounds. Are these plastic, and do they have more sound than the small wooden maracas? Thank you.
