I have been thinking about whether or not I should buy my kid his own drum set – like those professional ones. But I also thought about how impractical it would be if one day he is not going to like drumming anymore? So I found out about VTech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set.
It may not be like the drum set that professional drummers use, but at least it will spark creativity and encourage my kid to do better with playing drums. Here’s what I’ve seen from this drum set that is worth checking out:

What I’ve seen from the VTech KidiBeats Drum Kit
Ever since I bought this for my little one, he has been using this non-stop. The good thing about this drum set, despite being a toy, is that it is safe for kids to chew on it. There are times when our children just can’t help but chew on anything that they hold on to, but this one is safe for the kids. The manufacturer had it mind that the kids are going to chew on the drumsticks.
I’ve had this drum set for more than 4 months, and it is still working! I’m amazed at the durability that this drum set’s got, despite my son being very wild at times when playing with the drum set.
My son is 3 years old, but he catches on really well on how to use the drums. He’s been watching concerts and videos of musicians, especially drummers that hit on the snare. It is educational, just like what the manufacturer has claimed it to be.
When my son first had the drum set, he’d slam the surface of the snare with his hand in order to make the sound. I was worried at first, but I’m really amazed it has remained intact. The good thing that it only lasted a while for my son to use his hand to make drum sounds.
Do take note that the drum set is a toy drum, not the same ones that are designed for learning for professional drumming. This is a good way for children to learn more about playing drums, especially if you want to nurture your son’s interest in playing it. This is the perfect gift he or she will receive.
