It was my grand daughters second birthday yesterday! She is a very active little girl who loves to run and is now getting into everything (so inquisitive). I was surprised that her parents got her a little drum kit and keyboard (the kids ones) as she is already quite noisy and a bit of a handful. My daughter then explained – when she is making noise I know where she is…it is when she is quiet that she is into something she shouldn’t be! Great idea as I think musical instruments as a great tool to help with development and learning :)

  • Today’s mums have much smarter ways of staying on top of what their kids are up to than I ever did : )
    I was a bit alarmed at your story title but after reading the reason, I wish your daughter all the best.

  • Totally agree, My son who is nearly 3 is also a noisy character who enjoys playing the drums and pretending to be bookaboo. Silence is never golden with a toddler!

  • My son was given a drum set for his birthday one year from a relative. I thought they were inconsiderate.It’s different story if you purchased it yourself or asked Granny to buy it. It was a toy that only lived a short time in our house.

  • We had a toy drum kit but have moved our daughters onto the real thing mostly because the toy kit was not surviving the regular play. They are learning basic musical skills and beats. More importantly they are learning the responsibility and care for an instrument. Both of which can be gained toy or the real things. Always great to build an interest in music.

  • this is the same as my Grandson and he loved his drum kit that he loved it to death so my daughter bought him a cheaper set for that same reason if he was killing the drum kit with love then he was not up to anything he should not have been and when he played his drum’s he looked like Animal out of the muppets :)
