Funky and huge, this xylophone not only fills your space with deep tonal sounds, it also functions as an art piece. Each soaring amadinda can be hung like a hammock on a custom frame created by hardwood branches, or more simply on four log posts. The keys are created from Ipe, a second growth farmed Brazilian hardwood. Your order will include a string of tuned keys and mounting hardware. Our 4 post log frame is available for mounting this product, and includes an installation manual.
Please note that this instrument is not intended or designed for climbing. All musical instruments should be installed away from gross motor components.

This amadinda (xylophone) is a good opportunity for children who seek auditory, proprioceptive, and vestibular input. The keys are placed on an angle to assist in motor planning when playing the instrument. Children have the opportunity to cross at the mid-line, and the amadinda is big enough that one to four children can play the instrument at the same time, allowing for parallel, joint, and/or cooperative play.
