User Rating: Very Good
Pros:Educational and musical.
Cons:Not as loud as expected.
The Bottom Line: Regardless of volume problems, it's a wonderful toy especially for babies that love to bang and see "light shows." I just wished the volume was a bit louder.
My son got this toy when he was 9 mos old because he loves banging on things. He loved that it lit up and shows lit up shapes and letters and at times a "stick figure" dancing and a "face" talking on the drum itself. It has English and Spanish versions and has 3 options : abc, music, or dance. It helps foster dancing and fun play. It promotes gross motor skills and creativity. My son can switch between the options on his own and knows how to turn the switch off. Now that my son knows his ABCs and shapes he loves banging on the drum to watch the letters and shapes. The downside is that it has 2 volume options but it is not as loud as it should be. The banging and tapping of your child playing overshadows any noise that comes from the drum itself. You can barely hear the drum sounds if there are background noises in the room. Sometimes you have to bang hard on the drum to see the letters and pictures so at times it might be frustrating for a toddler. It's the right height (8 inches) for babies to help them sit upright and play. It saves battery life by turning off on it's own when not in use. I've only had to changed the battery once in almost 2 years. But it only keeps my son's attention for about 5-10 minutes.
