Playing an instrument is incredibly beneficial for children.

A common (and understandable) comment from parents, is that learning an instrument can be difficult, and children can become disheartened and give up quickly.

The pat bell shelf is the perfect introduction to playing music in their childhood years.  

Made from high quality, solid beech wood and with expert craftsmanship, this piece will last through the rough and tumble hands of our little ones, and be passed down through generations to come.

Each bell is played with the gentle tap of a wooden knob, which means anyone around the age of 12 months can create a sweet sound.

When played in order, the 5 bells play an ascending or descending D pentatonic scale (D, E, G, A, B). You can hear the pentatonic scale being used in this demonstration.


Each set includes:

  • 5 sturdy, wooden tap bells
  • Wooden ‘shelf’ that the bells sit in for consistent and accurate note sounds 
  • Easy to understand, coloured bells and knobs
  • Songbook with easy-to-read, colour coded notes relating to the colours of each bell
  • Extra coloured stickers and and music sheets for children to notate their own melodies
  • An additional ‘Tiny Tones’ songbook for free digital download

👶🏼 Play beautiful music from as early as 12 months of age - No bad notes!

🎁 A popular choice with parents and grandparents for that main birthday or Christmas present. 

“The best musical instrument / toy for 1 year olds”

🎓 Also much loved by music educators, early childhood centres, Occupational Therapists and NDIS providers across Australia.

This instrument can stand the test of time and be passed down through future generations.


Suitable for ages 12m+ Always to be used with parental supervision.

    So nice!

    The bells are lovely, the sound is beautiful. I bought them for my 6month old and he lights up anytime he hears them - worth it.

    Toy Library Instruments

    We recently purchased a number of items to help enhance the music section of our Toy Library. We were blown away by the quality of these items. They have been extremely popular and we look forward to hopefully purchasing some more later down the track.

    Fun for the whole family

    I purchased the Pat Bell Shelf for my instrument loving son's first birthday. It arrived quickly and undamaged. When we gave it to my son, we placed it in front of him and waited to see what he would do. He worked it out all on his own and the way his face lit up when he heard the sounds was priceless. He has played with it every day since. My older toddler, husband, and I all love having a play and trying to work out different songs. I don't think it's possible to make anything but lovely sounding tunes with the Pat Bell Shelf. I'm very happy with this product.

    We love the Pat Pat bells! It’s an heirloom quality toy that’s fun and educational. Our son started using the bells when he was 6 months old

    Very happy with the purchase. It was a present for the grandchild and was very well received. The sound of the bells are clear and crisp and very pleasant. Even if used a lot it should not annoy anyone. ;)
