If you don't own THe Parent's Magazine Bee Bop Band Toy I suggest running to the store and buying one immediately. That said, I should have bought three but you never know what is going to be a hit and what is going to flop. Also, you might not want this toy if you don't want a lot of noise. We have been doing "marching band" for days since I bought this toy. Ciaran is really liking the drum. I have had a few battles over who gets to be the drummer.
