As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 1 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism,
"I struggle to find toys that interest and engage my 6-year old with Down Syndrome and autism. I look for toys that she is capable of using by herself. This drum is great for her. It taps into her love of music and rhythm but adds the visual component of the rolling beads. It is simple enough for her to play with by herself, but she also has fun playing to music or while we sing with her. I really like the cross-sensory stimulation of this toy!"

"This drum is awesome. First, it has a great ocean scene inside. Second, when you move the drum back and forth, these little beads roll (which in itself is completely entertaining) and makes an ocean sound. Third, it comes with a mallet to use as a drum and makes a very nice, strong drum sound. Love it!"
Review for Ocean Wave Drum
Posted 12/28/2012 by Annette
Gave this to my 13 month old grand daughter for Christmas. She loves it! She shakes it to watch the beads in it move around,hits it with her hands and the stick that came with it and loves the noise it makes. I do wish the plastic stick beater it came with were fatter and not so pointed on the end. I'm so afraid she will fall and poke herself with it. Other than that its a great toy.
My rating of Ocean Wave Drum
Posted 12/23/2012 by Michael Gidos
Purchase was made as a prop for a production of a play entitled "Shipwrecked" It is a play where all of the sound is produced on stage by the actors. So far ( play is in rehearsal ) it appears to be serving the purpose for which it was purchased. Eventually we will have to paint in different colors to make it more accurately fit the scene in which it is used.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
