Hape Baby Drum is the perfect toy for developing your little one's love for musical beats. Watch as they experience the wonder of musical sounds and the joy of rhythm from a very early age. Encourage your child to crawl and roll the Baby Drum to hear the sweet music and see its colorful lights flash or stand the drum up and tap the colored circles to make funky beats and music! When put down and rolled, the Baby Drum emits a funky drum melody and begins a dazzling light show automatically. The melody differs when it is put down and will stop automatically when still. When stood, the Baby Drum can be beaten like a drum, with each colored circle emitting a different drum sound and triggering a different colored light when tapped.
