ATTENTION! LONG-TERM USE REVIEW HERE! We bought this on Amazon almost 10 years ago as one of our (then toddler) son’s first instruments. It has now been banged on by two boys growing up, their friends, used as a stool, action figure launcher, and who knows what else. This thing is of HIGH QUALITY. Remo makes great instruments. They also make SOLID instruments. This drum is nice because you don’t have to be so worried about the kids hurting it. My acoustic guitar is hung up high on the wall. My tuba is hidden (as much as you can hide a tuba) in a hard shell case. This is out in the open for playing music, or just playing with. The sound is fairly deep, so you won’t have a bashing headache as your young drummer finds his/her beat. Buy with confidence. Ours has been BEATEN in many ways and it still looks new.

People keep telling me that I was crazy to buy my kids a giant drum as a Christmas gift, but I find the tone of this drum to be really warm and not at all annoying. OK if they play it while we’re trying to have a conversation a few feet away, that can be frustrating, but for the most part I am not finding myself bothered by this drum at all. I even like to sit down and play it myself sometimes and I find the vibration of it to be really soothing. It feels really well put together and like it will last for a long time. My kids have been playing it a lot and incorporating it in to games. My biggest concern was that we would spend all the money on it and then it would not get used, but so far that does not look like it will be the case. I am trying to use it to help my daughter positively direct her feelings when she is frustrated/angry and I’m going to ask their music teacher for some other cool activities to use it for. My only complaint is that I wish there were some choices as far as the color. I don’t think I would have chosen the rainforest print if given a choice, but it also doesn’t bother me. I think this was a great purchase!

We bought this floor tom for Christmas 2014 and the kids have beaten this thing for hundreds of songs. It is in remarkable shape considering the use. Would recommend to any musical family. Great for teaching kids the basics of rhythm and percussion.

Function: Great sounding little drum! Kids will love it. Parents will learn to love it.Durability: We purchased this drum 8 months ago for our son’s birthday. In that 8 months, it’s been thoroughly enjoyed by our three toddlers. It’s also been re-purposed and abused… and not just a little bit. A lot of bit. This drum has proven to be indestructible. In addition to providing hours of percussive goodness, here are some of the many ways that our kids have used this drum: Drum, shopping cart, car (for transporting dolls, bears and younger brothers), chair, foot stool, bowling ball, shot put, a hat, battering ram, drawing pad, a “shoe” and a trampoline. Other fun side notes: Drum is capable of holding copious amounts of water or other liquids, sturdy enough for when your kids try to learn how to log roll and it can withstand falls/tosses from decent heights. Additionally, if and when the drumsticks go missing, rest assured that this drum can be played just as effectively with wooden/plastic kitchen utensils, “Melissa & Doug Stainless Steel Pots and Pans” and/or hair brushes. Having endured all of the above, the drum is still in excellent condition and still sounds great.Summary: This is the best $36ish you can spend on a drum for your kids. They’ll get tons of enjoyment out it and based on it’s durability, it should last for a good long time. Remo did a great job with this one… Seriously. Buy it for your kids already! You won’t be disappointed.

Our now almost 4yo daughter LOVES THIS. I mean, really loves it. With all her heart and soul. When she first got it her eyes lit up and she just banged the heck out of it. Weirdly, she even finds it calming. Sometimes she just says – I need some drumming time – and off she goes. Durable, well made, and loud (for better or worse ;>). Just what we were looking for.
I was looking for a drum that my 3 year old could use, as he really enjoys banging on things that aren’t really meant for heavy hitting. The drum needed to be small and portable enough for that age/size range, and I wanted something that could ideally be played on the floor (like a bongo style). I also wanted a drum that included padded drum sticks, and ideally something that could be fun to look at too.This drum met and exceeded all those desires. It is very reasonably priced, has ping pong ball-sized padded stick heads, and is lightweight. It has jungle animals all around it, and really the most important thing: it’s very solidly built. He (and I) can bang the heck out of the drum, and it takes a beating. The sound itself is great- not tinny or muted or “cheap” sounding. It’s got good reverberation and overall sounds strong and punchy.I would really recommend this if you’re looking for a well made, durable child’s drum that will likely last for years and provide hours of fun!

I didn’t know which one to buy and went with the cheaper “rhythm kids” drum. With that one you get one drum “stick” and the drum sound is not good, so I bought the other one. With the more expensive “rain forest” (taller and more expensive) drum you get 2 mallets and the drum sound is much richer; there is really no comparison. As an adult I enjoy playing the rain forest one but would never play the cheap sounding rhythm kids drum. The difference isn’t only the mallet instead of the stick, the drum head is a far superior quality. I want to buy other remo kids drums but am afraid I would just get the tinny sounding drum head. The 5 star is for the rainforest only, rhythm kids gets 3 stars.

Got this for the grand twins, age 1. They were banging on potato chip cans at home so I figured give them something to do when they come to gramp’s house. You get 2 drumsticks and the drum is a sturdy tom tom type that they can wail on all day. Not real loud, but loud enough. Let’s them release their testosterone levels, whatever that might be at their age. Barney our Lab/ Boxer like it too. Only He whacks it with his left paw as the drumsticks are for chewing.

Pretty,durable,lovely sound. Has hard tips and fabric wrapped large tom tom tips. Drumsticks are nicely balanced. Drum skin is good quality with a good “tom tom” sound from tenor using snare tips to a more bass tone using tom tips. body of drum is sturdy with a nice jungle forest print wrapped around and sturdy little wood block type legs. 6 yr old boy uses drum,is not gentle with his beats but drum holds up well and sounds true. He loves this drum and carries like a girl would a baby doll everywhere with him.

My 2 year old grandson loves watching Taiko drum ensembles on You Tube and tapping away on a coffee can with chopsticks so I found the Remo 22 inch gathering drum, reviewers said it really boomed and was rugged so I ordered it and true enough it booms away like a faux Taiko and my grandson loves it. At first he just beat the heck out of it but now he’s starting to emulate the drummers on You Tube and it’s awesome. His Dad added the little 10 inch Remo and I added a 10 inch Pearl “Short Fuse” with a pair Vic Firth “Kid Sticks”, all the drumming dose not bother me, he’s fun to watch and seems so happy.
