Childrens' Looping

Hi All-

Actually I have given my goddaughter a little looping thingie that 
playskool has made.
It looks kinda like a jukebox and has about 16 rhythms, sound effects, 
and instrument parts. 
How it works is that the bambina can assign any of these voices to any 
of 6 spaces and the piece loops. You can change sections on the fly as 
Really fun to show her how things can build or change...
