Junior Guiro


Designed for Players 3-6 Years Old

The guiro (rhymes with ‘hero’) is a fascinating instrument. It’s extremely important in Latin dance music with its combination of scraping and tapping sounds. The design we have found is perfect for a young child’s hands and it makes a great jam instrument to play while you Mambo or Salsa around the room.

We’ve done the testing over decades to help you source age-appropriate real guiros that suit your preschooler’s desire to vigorously test everything!

It has a dual purpose as an instrument because it’s also an agogo, making a ‘tick-tock’ sound when struck, and a ‘scritching’ sound when scraped along its ribs.

✅  this guiro is constructed so it has a handle making it easy for your child to hold as they move around — promoting learning through play with music and movement

✅  originally made from dried gourds carved with notches, guiros are ancient instruments known for adding subtle rhythmic elements to dance music

✅  this one is strong and durable made from wood and finished in natural colour

✅  engaging and safe for hands that like to explore how those scraping and tick-tocking sounds are made

✅ Mano Percussion is among the best educational percussion brands
