The Beat of a Different Drum

I’m so excited to tell you about the great new toy I discovered in my toy chest. It is so much fun to play with. It amazes me every time. I’m sure that you will love it too.

My new toy is the Laugh and Learn Drum. It’s made by Bright Starts. That’s the same company that made my Clack and Slide Activity Ball. If Bright Starts keeps making toys like these, they’ll find themselves on my list of prefered vendors.

My Laugh and Learn Drum is amazing! No complicated buttons or gizmos here. All you need to do is tap the center of the drum and the fun begins. If you know how to work your hands, you can use this toy.

Once you tap the drum, prepare to be amazed. Your efforts will be rewarded with fun sounds and a dazzling display of colourful lights. I don’t know how all those lights fit into such a small space. They seem to go on forever. I wish I could get my hands in there to investigate. It’s not possible to touch those lights. Trust me, I’ve tried.

The Laugh and Learn Drum has three modes of play. The musical mode plays tunes when you tap the drum. The numbers mode counts up to five drum taps before playing a song. The colours mode names the coloured lights as they appear. All three modes are great, but I think I like the musical mode best.

This toy is trilingual! There are three language settings. You can learn in english, french, or spanish. Any of the three modes of play can be activated in any of the three languages. As a bonus, the reflective surface also works as a mirror, so you never have to play alone.

Mommy bought my Laugh and Learn Drum at Toys R Us when it was on sale. It is also available at Walmart. Our American neighbours can pick one up on the US version of the Toys R Us website. Or do a quick google search for the Laugh and Learn Drum to find other distributors.
