Early children's toys often emulated adult items or tasks. This small functional drum is styled like drums found in paintings of children in all social classes. A small, 7" round wood drum like this is the perfect period children's toy to have at camp.
I purchased a drum for each of my boys. The 8 year old just starting to learn drumming for our local Fife and Drum Corps. The younger wants to be like his brother. Even though this drum is smaller than the rope tension drum my son uses for the Corps, he can still practice on this one! We’ve only had them for a day or two and they have already played with these for hours!
