    Precision Sounds had a free toy piano, I think. I Bela Media have a free toy box. I think GPO comes with some toy percussion.

    I'm specifically wanting a slide whistle, and I'd love to find one of those little whistles that I use to get in gumball machines. They were round and the harder you blow the higher it goes. Anybody know what I'm talking about??? I need that kind of kid percussion. Any ideas??

    Thx

    ACME makes all kinds of stuff like that.

    I have a really lovely three-layer toy piano, a Jaymar that I sampled several years ago that is very sparkly and present. Much better than any of the freebies I've heard, but it's not a freebie. PM me if interested. I have the ACME slide whistle and siren as well, but have not ever sampled them.

    Can't you buy a really sweet toy piano for about $30?? I used to have a really cool one with a two-and-a-half octave keyboard and used it live. Sounded awesome. And seriously, a slide whistle is a buck-fifty and I've seen chimps play them so technique's probably not an issue.

    (Sorry, I'm REALLY not trying to be snide- I know you're probably looking for a collection of several different useful things in a studio-friendly format and it makes sense. )
