The Woodstock Pennywhistle, by the world-renowned Clarke Tinwhistle Company, is a sweet-sounding whistle at a great low price. This whistle is similar to the Clarke "Sweetone," which was the first conical bore tinwhistle made with a plastic fipple, or mouthpiece, a combination of traditional workmanship and modern technology.
It doesn't take an accomplished musician to create magical musical memories. The Pennywhistle is easy to play and has a clear and accurate tone. The ideal instrument for encouraging musical appreciation and creativity, the Pennywhistle is loved by children and adults all over the world.
The Clarke Tinwhistle, like other tinwhistles, has its own unique fingering. It should not be confused with the fingering of a recorder.
When covering a hole the pads of the fingers should be used, not the tips. (The pad is the area about midway between the tip and the first joint.) The fingers should be held flat. Do not arch or curve them. Do not allow air to escape from under the fingers as that will cause squeaks, poor pitch and tone.
Ages 5 years and older.

Our toy experts have indicated that the Pennywhistle strengthens the following Intelligences:
Children with strong Musical intelligence have great sensitivity to the rhythm of sounds (e.g. pitch, timbre, composition). Students strong in this intelligence will enjoy listening to music and may ultimately work as singers, songwriters, composers, or even music teachers.
Children with strong Interpersonal intelligence work effectively in a group and understand and recognize the goals, motivations and intentions of others. Students with this intelligence thrive in cooperative, group work situations and are skilled at communicating, mediating and negotiating.
Children who are strong in the Intrapersonal intelligence have the ability to understand one's own emotions, goals and motivations. These students have good instincts about their strengths and abilities.
