Mini Tongue Drum

Our product code: P-IC-MUS-MTD

Our Mini Tongue Drum is a wonderful musical play instrument that can be situated in any area of the playground. Children can perform in their own orchestra when placed alongside other musical items or form their own bands as they play in concerts on the performance stage.

More commonly known as slit drums, our Tongue Drum promotes cross-curricular play as they are inspired by one of the oldest instruments in the percussion world, originating from Africa, Asia and South America.

Children can explore musical instruments from different countries along with their history as they find out more about the past of this interesting instrument. Role play will naturally occur as children act out the past, investigating if the drums create different sounds when hit with other natural finds.

Crafted from beautiful, hard, dense Sapele timber, our tongue drum produces smooth vibrations in the enclosed timber box when it is struck: creating magical melodies in the playground. When struck, each tongue creates a different tune, enabling children to explore sounds and rhythms outdoors.
Additionally, the drum has slits in the bottom so that it can be used throughout all-weather, without the worry of the enclosed box filling with rainwater.

Since the drum has been angled, numerous children can easily and ergonomically stand and play the instrument together, while they improve their cooperation, teamwork, communication, language and self-confidence.

Striking an instrument, such as a drum, to produce soothing sounds is a fantastic way to enable children to explore their feelings and thoughts as they release any stress and worries they may be feeling: calming children and contributing towards promoting good mental health of children
