Do Re Me & You recently merged with Discovery Toys. DRM&Y was a company created by Kindermusik. If you have a DT consultant, you should contact her. If you do not have one, I am still signed up as a Discovery Toys consultant, but am not actively pursing business at this time-- just want to stay involved enough to help my own children and other parents who need items. Anyway-- with the addition of DRM&Y, we have a new hand-clapping game kit in the line. It comes with a DVD demonstrating the clapping games, a CD with songs, and then handy little flip-cards with the words to the different hand clapping games. I bought one to use when my girls get older, (ages 2 & 3 now) but have honestly not looked at it yet. If you were interested in coming to see the product, you would be welcome to do so. You can also look at it on my website:

Not trying to push or anything, just thought if this was something your Girl Scout troup enjoyed, this could be a fun tool for your group.
