The Thunder Drum, inspired by a tour through a sound studio long ago, is our newest outdoor musical instrument.

The sound it makes will surprise your children, and bring them hours of fun and entertainment, along with numerous learning opportunities, as well. Playing this instrument can be a collaborative effort, too, as it can be played by more than one child at a time, and on one or both sides!

When struck with a fist or open palm, this drum makes a sound that can be loud or soft depending on how hard it's struck (avoid striking the surface with a mallet or sharp object).

This is a unique musical instrument that will likely become one of your favorites, as it never sounds the same from strike to strike, and therefore never gets boring!

Comes with easy-to-install instructions.
