    I can’t recommend these. Sure they were for a two year old, but I did have an expectation that they’d arrive well constructed and with a bit of real tone difference between the two drums. Not at all. The ‘skins’ are sort of baked, or shrunk, or chemically dried onto the body of the drums (as opposed to stretched) and one ‘skin’ is bubbled, warped, and otherwise not flat or tight by any stretch (sorry) of the imagination. There is, on a scale of 1-10, a .5 tone difference between the two drums. I get more tone from different sized upside down plastic cups. The thing doesn’t even accomplish a nice bongo sound (or any bongo sound), just a muted thwack. Yes, I’m holding them right. The wooden bridge between the two drums is loose, and can’t be tightened in spite of the exposed wing nuts. Bummer. Even my daughter, who’s been dying for bongos, was underwhelmed. Avoid these. I think I’ll send them back. In fact, I’m changing this 2-star review to one. Can’t believe they’re charging this price for this product, which would be better valued if it dropped out of a gumball machine.

    My 2 year old daughter LOVES music, especially the drums. I wanted to wait a while before reviewing to see how durable these bongos are and I have to admit that they have surpassed my expectations. For the price I thought she’d get to play with them for a couple months and they’d break, but these little drums have withstood relentless beating with plastic drum sticks for 2 months without a sign of wear.

    EDIT 07/23/2013
    Almost 3 years later, my 5 year old and 16 month old play with these bongos all the time. They’re still in great shape!

    EDIT 06/12/2015
    They are finally damaged by my 3 year old, but still work (see photo). The kids do not play with the bongos regularly, but I’m still surprised they held up so long. No complaints and I feel they were worth the money we paid ($24 at the time).
