These lovely Story Teller Animals are hand-carved in Vietnam. They are small relatives of the ancient Chinese tiger box. The tiger box was used to end music with a flourish by stroking its back three times with a stick. Hold these little ones -- you can call them guiros or rasps -- loosely in your hand or on your palm so they can resonate when you rub or tap them with the stick.
Rhythm instrument from India. Slip your thumb through the round hole and slip the other kartal over your fingers on the same hand. Just clap the two straight edges together, and you can jingle and tap along with your favorite music. $24.
