While looking through the ELC shop I came across this rain maker and thought it would be perfect for my little girl. I knew she would maybe be a little young for it but as I could shake it for her I knew she would love it. Of course a rain maker is basically a plastic tube with bright coloured caps on either end. The small colourful beads inside the tube can be shaken around to make a lovely noisy rattle. The bright colours around the transparent casing are very bold and attractive to young eyes. They pull the child in and then they begin to discover it does more than just look pretty. The rain maker is made up of all the bright prime colours to grab little ones ... Read the complete review

So, what's a Rainmaker I hear you ask. Remember at infant school you'd make your own instruments now and again, one instrument always being a kitchen roll tube filled with lentils and blocked at both ends? An ELC Rainmaker is a posher, prettier version. You've basically got a longish transparent plastic tube filled with multi-coloured plastic beads which, when shaken or rolled around, will make a 'whoooshing' noise similar to the sound of rainfall. The beads are actually much brighter than in the photograph above, almost florescent, and the colour hasn't faded at all in the years we've had this toy - and believe me this has been dumped in the bath, left out ...

As a childminder and a mother of 4, I feel that I have tried and tested this item to the maximum. We received it as a gift and after unwrapping it we were initially stumped. What does it do we thought? The answer came from the giver, or her daughter, to be precise. You can hold it up, tip it up and then tip it upside down. The beads cascade down either quickly or slowly depending on the angle you hold the tube. The noises it makes depends on the angle held too. The colour effect is pretty and you can use this to discuss the names of the colours, use language such as fast and slow, up and down, shake etc. You can talk about closing your eyes, imagine ...

My 12 month old son was given a gift voucher for the Early Learning Centre for his birthday from a relative, we went shopping to spend the voucher but had difficulty spending it as their was far to much choice in the elc but my son was took interest in the rain maker toy so thats what we bought. The early learning centre has shops throughout the country and have a fantastic website, I paid around £5 for the rain maker and was also at the time available online. I prefer going into the shop as its a Aladdin cave of goodies and you can see what you are getting before buying. The rain maker toy is basicly a long clear plastic tube, its roughly 12 ...

I have taken both my children to music classes and one of the instruments is a rainmaker both of my children loved this and so we decided to have on at home. What is it? Well a rain maker is a clear plastic tube with various coloured beads in it which when the tube is turned these move around and not only look lovely they make a sound which is like rain hence the name. Cost and stockists The best rainmakers are from the Early Learning Centre and cost £8 these are available from store or from mother care, boots and of course Early learning centres website www.elc.co.uk . Age range The rain maker is suitable from 6 months ... Read the complete review
