    Is it just me who can't stand them? I'm a musician and love encouraging children to make music, so of course I make sure they get a chance to play them, but I don't like them at all. I think it's the extreme staccato that is all they have, no opportunity for playing anything with substance.

    Sorry, it's been a hard day!

    I thought the version of a-Ha's 'Take On Me' was brilliant and displayed some amazing new playing techniques. The fast wobbling between the feet was my favourite.
    The children in my school love playing with the BoomWhackers - and I often use them as a starter activity.
