Awesomely Annoying: Creative Playthings Steel Drum On eBay

cp_steel_drum_ebay.jpg

This is simultaneously the awesomest thing I've seen on eBay all week and the single worst idea for a kid's gift all year. Unless, of course, your kid lives in a padded, soundproof room, or you totally hate your neighbors.

I mean, can you just imagine your kid playing a steel drum like this all day long?

Then you are in for a rude awakening, my friend, because your kid's gonna sound nothing like that for the first three years, at least.

Steel Drum Creative Playthings Made In America Circa 1970's, currently $7+10.23 s/h, auction ends Dec. 6
UPDATE: sold for $45.51. Someone's having a clangy Christmas!

Huh, there must be one of those in my mom's basement somewhere, c. 1976. Seven dollars? Cha-ching!

You can always take your kid to a subway station. Outside of the Caribbean, steel drums sound best on a subway platform.
