The Little Rattle Drum

It’s time to celebrate Lunar New Year’s Day, the most important Chinese holiday. It is especially exciting for children who will get new clothes, lucky money, and delicious food! Aha! This time Dingding and Dangdang are playing the little Rattle-Drum game, acting like a Chinese street merchant and customer from ancient times.


The Shuttlecock

On occasion Dingding and Dangdang may have unpleasant moments. But that’s also the time when they grow up. By making a shuttlecock together with their “treasures,” Dingding and Dangdang finally discover that sharing is fun, and the happiest thing is to play together!


The Kite

Dingding and Dangdang want to send the Sun a letter to thank Him for warming the world. But how can they send anything up to the Sun? They decide to make a kite and fly the letter up into the sky!


The Beanbags

On a rainy day when it’s not possible to play outside, what could be better than playing beanbags at home? Dingding and Dangdang play them on a table, with toy blocks, and then outside in the park after the rain. Look! They are having their own little Sports Day!


The Tumbler

Sometimes toys can teach kids good lessons. The tumbler, for example, shows resilience as it always stands up after every fall! This time Dangdang is the one who learns his lesson!

    It’s a great bookset! We made a few toys based on the instruction at home and kids love them! Flying kite is difficult but they had some much fun with making the rattle drum and tumbler (all kinds of faces). The coloring book is also well designed.

    I regularly played with four of the five toys when I was a kid. When I had my baby I actually went online looking for rattle drums and tumblers but none of the stores had such things. The set comes with five books, each has a hard cover with soft inner pages, plus a coloring book. The drawing is cute and bonus point for featuring both genders. The text is in (simplified) Chinese and English. There is no pinyin. You can follow their video tutorials online and make those toys at home. I’d improvise based on the video. For example you can cut a yogurt pot to form the rattle drum and I bet it’ll be stronger structurally and make louder noise. It will be a task some day when my LO graduates from chewing her books, lol.

    What a great way to learn about Chinese culture! We have a nanny at home who speaks Mandarin. She is very happy with the book and read it to my son all the time. Highly recommended!
