Making Music: Schoenhut Piano Co. & RAGGS

RaggsNew2What has us buzzing around the Schoenhut shop? Toy Fair 2014! From travel arrangements to event plans to scheduling special appearances and promoting new products, it’s safe to say we’re in official Toy Fair mode! We’re thrilled to introduce new items this year as a way to remind all our musical fans why they choose the Schoenhut brand for their toy instrument essentials. But even more exciting than adding a new product to the Schoenhut collection of toy instruments is our new partnership with the award-winning kid’s TV series RAGGS.

This partnership is a beautifully orchestrated duet between Schoenhut and RAGGS – both fully committed to children’s musical development and exploration. As a musical and educational series geared toward small children, this show covers all the bases by delivering award-winning original songs that work right along with the preschool curriculum. While gaining an audience in the United States,

“The Raggs Band has played over 4,000 live shows including appearances at the White House, multiple trips overseas to perform for military families and appearances at performing arts centers on four continents.” – Raggs.com
