    OR: "Three Recorders, a Bamboo Flute, and a Slide Whistle". ;-) All otherwise mostly the same general size, anyways...and all from my 'musical noisemakers' department. <lol>

    From the top down in the pics the first three are "recorders" all made of plastic, one with a zippered vinyl case. The first two examples are genuine musical instruments typically used (or at least *used* to be used?) in grade school classrooms to help teach kids about music, the 3rd (translucent blue) one might be a toy, but more likely just a slightly newer (more colorful?) student model.

    4th one down is a "bamboo flute", very similar to the recorders but obviously made of a different material. I don't know anything specific at all about its origin/maker/etc., but don't think it is anything terribly old or unusual.

    Last one is much more-funner -- a "slide whistle". Instead of all those cumbersome finger-holes to make different musical notes while blowing on it -- 'ya just have to grab the loop handle on its end and yank it back and forth. A classic "sound effect" <lol> and in this case also a nicely made plated brass (?) device.
