A must-have musical sound effect for the classroom or home! Tilt the rainstick up and down to hear rainfall. Vary the angle to vary the speed of the sound! Like the traditional Chilean instrument, this Rainstick is created from a dried cactus. Thorns pressed into the hollow shaft create the sound of rain as pebbles cascade over the them. The rainstick measures 14 long. Fair Trade Product. Made in Chile.
