High Five: The Happiness Box

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

The Happiness Box is a beautifully narrated children's story that explores the strength of the human spirit, while educating kids about the various classical instruments found in an orchestra.

Scored by composer Bryony Marks, and performed by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The Happiness Box tells the story of three best friends, each with a distinctive voice: Winston the lizard (oboe / glockenspiel), Martin the cheeky monkey (double bass / trumpet), and Wobbley the frog (tuba / guiro).
