[Update: we still have it (got it in 2004)--and it is still our son's favorite instrument. We're replacing the drum heads this year, because other siblings poked holes in them. It was one of the best things we got for our son!]

As the father of seven children, I have had more than one interested in getting a drum for Christmas. Until this year, we've done everything to avoid what appeared to be a high price point for a "toy" drum, but all our reservations were gone as soon as it was in use! All other toy drums did not last more than a day or two, and this one has taken a pounding and just keeps going. I was especially pleased to see an actual drum key, for tightening down the skin--that let me know this was designed like a real instrument, not just a toy! The drum sticks are shorter than standard sticks--perfect for the younger player. Our son who is playing now is five, and he spends much of the day marching through the house with his drum, while his little sister (or even I) follow him with the symbols. It is loud, but we have him play in his room or with the drum nested in a soft blanket when we really need to tone it down.

Please be aware that First Act has another drum set available at a major retailer (First Act Fun in a Drum) that appears to have more stuff (like maracas, a tambourine, and a harmonica) for a lower price. You do get more stuff, but the drum skin is not the same (the drum is designed to hold the other accessories). The drum skin on that set is similar to those on other toy drums that we have discarded over the past five years. We examined both sets before making our choice, and we are glad we selected this one.

If you select this one, you won't regret it (unless you have a low tolerance for noise!).

We bought this drum set for our 2 year old who is obsessed with the concept of drumming & marching. This is a first class set and as noted is almost too nice. This is a huge step above the tupperware and pan lids our little guy used to use for his personal parades. The drum is a bit heavy,large, cumbersonme for a two year old and of course is LOUD. The cymbals are also loud but do have a professional sound quality. Do recommend this purchase. It does come a bit steep at $30 but is a very nice looking and performing set. If you little one gets hooked on drumming via the pots and pans, spoil him/her with this first-class set that they should be able to use well into their childhood.

I purchased this Marching Band Kit for my Nephew, with the ok from his parents. He walked around for weeks pretending to be in a marching band like his two older brothers.

Yes it is a bit loud at times but it is better than seeing him play video games or glued to the TV for hours.

A great way to get kids involved in music!

This is the best little drum, Don't forget to buy the Junior Quartet set to complete the marching band. I bought this set after reading all the other reviews and they were right it was a little bit more money but a good invest for much futher family fun. This set is for my 1 and 3 year old, yes is said 1 year old never to young to start out their musical talents. And if it with stand them banging and having daily parades around the house its sturdy. I was a little surprised on how loud the little drum is but its all in good family fun!
