Peter and the Wolf brings generations of fun.

        There is something extra fun about watching your kids enjoy or discover something that you can remember enjoying as a kid.  The classic story of Peter and the Wolf accompanied by the musical arrangement is one of those pleasures I enjoyed passing on to my kids.
            I remember playing the little record on a little record player, and listening to the classical music and the narrator describing the wolf as the sound of the horns made an ominous melody.  When I hear the music half of my imagination recreates the story, the other half remembers how it felt to be a kid listening to that story 25 years ago. 

       Whether you remember the story from your own childhood or if you are hearing of it for the first time. I encourage you to gather your kids around the computer and click here for an audio stream of the story and music.

        At our house I gave my kids these wooden figures and they act out the  story as we listen along.  You will find the set of figurines here in my shop.

Peter and the Wolf was one of our favorites as kids too and my sons loved the one narrated by Isak Perlman in their turn. I believe it even inspired my youngest into orchestra music and he's now a very accomplished cellist.

Thanks for the audio link. I've talked about Peter and the Wolf with my daughter, but haven't yet introduced it to her.

It would be fun to play along with your wooden figures!

It seems it really brings so much fun. What is good in this toy is that you are sure that it will not affect your health. This wooden toys doesn't contain any harmful substance. All natural. This is the toy I want to hand to my younger brother.
