This may not be a reasonable request but if anyone will know the answer I am sure it will be among you readers of this BBS.

My grandson is 2 years and 2 months old. He is discovering musical instruments and last month saw and heard a tuba in circus band. He fell in love with the sound and has been asking for one ever since.

My question is how can we introduce him to this wonderful instrument? Is there such a thing as a "toy" or "junior" version of a Tuba? Unfortunately he does not come from a lineage of musical intrumentalists and we are unsure as to how best to nurture this interest.

Any suggestions? Thank you for your help.
