This review is from: Little Tikes Tap A Tune Drum (Toy)

After reading the other reviews of this toy, and having seen the actual toy in use by my son and other toddlers in his playgroup, I must say I do not understand what the other reviewers were thinking. This is a very simple, hardy, toy drum that can withstand being played by toddlers who play rough and would destroy a weaker drum. Of course it is not a real drum! I am a teacher as well as a mother and can tell you that real drums do not survive use by the average toddler. The material that makes drums sound so nicely and seem hardy to a regular adult is in reality nowhere near strong enough to pass the “toddler” test. The sound of this toy drum is not that of a professional drum, or even an amateur drum. It is not meant to sound like that because it is a TOY. It gives toddlers a chance to explore with rythm (very important for the later development of reading skills) and gross motor movements of their body (also important skills toddlers are learning) without breaking more delicate things around the house. It IS thick plastic and it sounds like thick plastic and that is ok because the purpose of this is not to be used in a performance or to learn to actually play drums but to be played with by very young children learning an entirely different set of developmental skills. Also, while the nice electronic sounds that parents like so much in modern toys are cute, those toys also tend to break faster than good old fashioned simple toys without so many bells and whistles but solidly constructed.(Not to mention all those little electronic tunes get annoying to parents by the 50th time you child activates it in a day) Most toddlers have more fun banging on pots and pans or even playing with a cardboard box than with a fancy toy any day. That is not to say they do not like electronic toys, but they can appreciate simple toys that they can use and hit as hard as they want to and throw down the stairs without being told they need to be gentle with it. This toy drum (not real drum) meets those qualifications. I have seen this is action and am more than satisfied with its performance. My son is very rough and tumble. When he is older, I will get him a nicer drum if that is what he wants. For now, you can’t beat this one.

This review is from: Little Tikes Tap A Tune Drum (Toy)

I bought this drum for toysrus. It is a waste!!! The design is nice but since it is not made like a real drum, it sound nothing like it. The top and bottom is just a thick plastic board not a thin rubber or goat skin for this matter and therefore when you beat it it is a unpleasant sound that you would get by hitting anything with a hard object. If you say it is drum, then it should at least sound close to a drum. Am I right? But this this a hard plastic shaped like a drum. The sound is so annoying!!!

This review is from: Little Tikes Tap A Tune Drum (Toy)

My son likes this toy but never uses it as a drum. He uses the drum sticks to beat on everything around the house and really likes them. The sides of the drum has some ribbed edges that make cool sounds and everything is durable.
