The awesome new Calypso Chimes allows you to affordably add a music element to the play yard, select a combination of notes and colors, then add to your music garden as budget permits. Calypso Chimes are a popular choice due to their durability, beautiful finish, and the clear lively tone they produce with a lasting, resonant sustain.

These anodized aluminum rainbow-colored chimes are individually mounted to a stainless-steel post which can be installed into the ground, fixed to the surface (with a surface plate) or installed with an extended footer. The anodized aluminum polished finish will not chip, flake, or peel and is UV stable.

Select your choice of either a Ground install or a Surface Mount post option. Each post comes complete with a ‘mallet minder’ to hold the mallet securely in place when not in use.

Available as individual 'solo' notes you can create the sonic landscape of your choice. Calypso Chimes are also available in the following cost saving arrangements within the C Major scale, which can be selected from the Drop Down Menu, above:

  • Calypso Chimes Quartet - Set of 4 Notes (C, E, G, C)
  • Calypso Chimes Pentatonic - Set of 6 Notes (C-4-C-5)
  • Calypso Chimes Diatonic - Set of 8 Notes (C4-C5)
These wonderful chimes are also available with a single post with multiple chimes. Click on the following links for details on these budget and space saving sets:

Reminiscent of orchestral tubular bells, the sleek design of the colored anodized aluminum tubing make these chimes outstanding in both sound quality and visual appeal. Using only the highest quality materials, we promise the best quality resonant sound you have ever heard in any outdoor musical chime. Aluminum is one of Earth’s most abundant metals known for its lightness, strength and resistance to corrosion and Calypso Chimes are made of precision-cut high-grade aluminum tubing - constructed to exacting tolerances - with a corrosion-protective anodized finish that will preserve the chime's appearance, increase durability in hostile environments and will never rust. 

Colors are easy for most young children to recognize and differentiate between, however in music, the baseline is black and white - the colors of standard notation. When first introducing music and music reading to young children it can be challenging for them to recognize patterns and organize the content visually when everything is black and white. Sound and color fit together, and most minds draw intensely vivid connections between the two. For this reason, color can be a helpful tool when teaching music and developing music-reading skills to young children.

It turns out that Newton shared the concept of likening color notation to music notation. To the medieval mind, there were just five colors in the rainbow: red, yellow, green, blue, and violet. But Newton added two more – orange and indigo – because he believed that the harmony of colors in the rainbow must be similar to the harmony of notes in a major musical scale. Seven steps in the scale; seven colors in the rainbow.
