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
