As Christmas draws closer and closer, I've been looking for musical instruments. Sure, everyone from Fisher Price, to Doug and Melissa, to even the fancier European wooden toy companies offer musical toys. But I'm looking at things that transcend the idea of a musical noise maker that's only good from ages 3-6. So here I begin my roundup of the very best child-friendly instruments I can find - they will have great sound quality, they will often be Fair Trade, and they can even be used by adults. My first installment will be wind instruments. Many are ages 3 and up, some are 6 and up, but some could certainly be used with supervision in younger children.
