This would make a fun musical addition to a kids play area in the garden. Bamboo chimes are musical instruments. They’re usually hung up in doorways, and when the wind blows through them they make a pleasant sound. The most common type of bamboo chimes consists of tubes of different lengths that are tied together by threads or twine at each end so that they sound when the wind blows through them, making a pleasant rattle.
This set of chimes is larger than usual, and the sounds can also be made by using drumsticks, or a stick from a tree, instead of just depending on the wind.
Bamboo chimes are also used in Feng Shui to attract good luck and deflect bad chi (energy). Each tube is considered a separate unit and has its own unique characteristics. Placement of the tubes is very important: each one needs to sound towards an open area. A good spot would be a patio or a doorway that leads outside.
