Bang! Clang! Swoosh! Clap, clap, clap! Ding! Dobidobidoo! A party is not a party without all the commotion and the noise that comes with it.

A birthday party is always fun when it has the complete elements of music and sounds that translate happiness and celebration.
The market offers a wide range and selection of noisemakers that can suit any party theme. Here are a few popular choices.
