Time to rock and roll with your baby! 

The Lamaze Squeeze Beats First Drum Set from TOMY is designed for the way babies play, complete with bright colors and unique fabric textures that little ones can use to feel and explore. Babies ages 12 and up can pat, squish, and thwack each bouncy piece to make the whole toy come alive with music

This set is jam-packed with educational benefits for babies, encouraging sensory play, gross motor skills, and cause-and-effect learning. Kids can create fun sound effects, play a backing track, or just goof around with animal sounds. The drum set is also made with squishy materials so babies can explore without fear of breaking it or hurting themselves. Additionally, the cymbals on the drums bounce back after every squish. Kids can push them down and watch as they spring right back up!
