The marked notes, which would appear to be silver Sharpie, began to wipe off immediately.
The strongest solvent to contact it was sweaty kid's hands.
The stand was the next to go, the bottom which is no more then 3/8" thick and made of softwood, sheared along the grain on both sides past the notch. You couldn't design the stand with these materials without expecting this to happen. I could go into detail regarding stress applied to the notch when the upright is viewed as a lever, but i won't. I think it's suffice to say that with the softwood and pressure towards the grain the shear point is <5ftlbs applied at the top. This is easily reachable by a child trying to reassemble the drum/stand. As an engineer this really bothers me as the designer had to be aware, yet the company sells it anyway.
Also, the drum is attached to the stand with zip-ties.
The actual drum is decent, not worth $70 by its self though. I did contact the manufacturer, there was no offer of recompense, just a suggestion to exchange. The problem is in the design, an exchange would have the same flaws.
