So I'm pretty much asking to be deemed completely and totally insane. This little drum set and electronic guitar have just been purchased from Ebay and will be arriving at my house sometime in the not so distant future. On Christmas morning my two-year-old music lover will find them waiting for him. Because I am crazy. Because I want to encourage his love for music. Because, apparently, the idea of a toddler banging incessantly on a set of drums sounds like fun to me. Given the fact that he would probably destroy the guitar, we may wait to give him that particular portion of the "Am I an awesome mom or what" gift.
Here are the particulars of the guitar. We'd much prefer for him to learn to play the acoustic guitar but it came with the drums. What are you gonna do?
22" Length, 7 1/2" Width
Four electronic guitar rhythms
Realistic electronic guitar sounds
Different rhythm transition
Real steel strings
Dynamic built-in amplifier
Auto power off
Here are the Drum Set Features:
Age: 3+ (Gasp! He'll be seven months shy of 3. I hope he doesn't swallow one of the tom toms!)
1 Brass drum
1 Small tom tom
1 Large tom tom
3 Mini tom tom
1 Pedal Drum
2 Drum sticks.
I got all of this, including shipping and handling for $39.99 and all I have to do is find space for it and, well, buy stock in Excedrin for what is sure to become a nonstop, pounding headache. But I cannot tell you how excited this is going to make that child.
