10.23.09 Bang this Solid Wood Drum by Plan Toys
We love this little drum by Plan Toys. I’d been wanting to get a few non-plastic instruments for my girls. Sure, there are lots of cheap plastic instruments to be had out there at any Toys R Us, but that isn’t what I was looking for.
I wanted an eco-friendly and safe instrument and Plan Toys are known for this. They are made from non-toxic, natural materials and the company is trustworthy and green. I’ve never heard of a recall or problem with the safety of their toys. According to their website: PlanToys practices the "Three R's" of green living: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Our manufacturing processes are designed to reduce waste and save energy. We reuse materials, and have introduced innovative methods to recycle paper and other products. We are always looking for new ways to improve and preserve our environment.
The drum itself is lovely. The perfect size for a toddler, it has three areas that provide different sound when they are hit. The drum can also be played by hand. My girls have enjoyed playing this drum from ages 1- 4, and still do.
The Solid Wood drum also develops children’s spatial perception and arm muscles as well as auditory nerves. This is a wonderful holiday present for any toddler wanting to rock out (but fear not, it's not too loud, sleep deprived parents).
