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!).
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!

I loved the product, but it did get dents easily in the head and the straap was shorter than intended.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
This is a wonderful drum/cymbil combination gift. The drum is sturdy and a lovely fire engine red. It has a strap that hooks easily to the drum for easy marching around the house. Read morePublished on March 8, 2007 by Barbara Mcclung
