VTech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set (Would Buy Again in a Second)

Music is a huge part of my life and something I really enjoy. I took piano lessons for a long time when I was younger and I have continued to enjoy having the ability to play through my adult life. I have seen my son also take an interest in music and instruments, even from his very young age, and I love playing with toys that encourage music development. The VTech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set is a great music toy geared for little ones and I really had a lot of fun playing with it.


Age Range: 2, 3, 4, 5 year olds

The KidiBeats Drum is secured in the packaging with several plastic twist clips and the kickstand, and drumsticks are secured with plastic zip ties. I used my scissors and had everything out of the package, ready to play, in just a few minutes. The toy comes with batteries installed so no hassle with batteries when you have an excited little one waiting. Vtech KidiBeats Kids Drum-Set

The Playtime Experience

There is a lot to do with this drum set, surprisingly so! This set teaches alphabet, numbers, music, memory and more. There are several buttons on the front including the on/off button. On the left side of the drum there is a numbers, letter, follow me, and freestyle button. On the right side, there is a button with animal faces on it and another with music notes. These right side buttons seem to be “enhance” buttons. When you press these buttons after putting it in one of the learning modes it just adds an element of fun with music or animal sounds. The learning features have you hit the drums as they light up either to count, learn letters and sounds, practice your memory skills, or just to make music.

The lights in the drum set aren’t that easy to see unless you are in a dimly lit room.

Final Note

The VTech KidiBeats Kids Drum Set has really impressed me. I couldn’t believe how much there was to do and learn on what seems like a basic drum set, on first glance. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again for my little guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_ZjLpbT8-I (You may also like: Vtech Bizzy Mix and Move Robot)
