There’s a new kid in class and they’re making quite a bit of noise...
Obilab isn’t joking about making music accessible to everyone, no matter size, age, experience. Obilad did some seriously extensive research of bringing the DRUMKIT near and far to music events, maker faires, festivals, and every single space we could find people. In this time we noticed quite a few kids (or, as we like to call them miniature rock stars) climbing atop the kit and jamming. We also noticed that many of the smaller children had a hard time reaching the kick-drum pedal, plus the drum spread out was generally a little larger than their reach, and the backpack definitely didn’t fit.
Obilab sees a real opportunity to work with and for young musicians and immediately began designing a portable cardboard kit that fits children perfectly. It is our great pleasure to excitedly welcome you to the first model of the DRUMKID, in all it’s glory.
The DRUMKID is specifically created for miniature rock stars. Here’s it’s specifications:
-The perfect fit for kids under 130 cm or 51 inches or 4’2 feet.
-Great for Teachers, educators, caretakers, and family folks!
-Incredibly durable due to fiberglass and cardboard design
1 . Sydney : the Backpack / stool / hand percussion, cajon style with conga sounds.
2 . Bob : kick drum with its pedal. You can use the top as a floor tom as well.
3 . Captain : the snare, that you can rimshot when you hit it flat.
4 . Hi-Charly : use it as a closed Hi-hat or as a handy shaker.
5 . Boso Drumsticks : the only bamboo drumsticks ever created. Bamboo drumsticks are incredibly light and easy for even the smallest hands to handle
Starting to play an instrument, especially drums, can be a bit intimidating. The whimsical design of the DRUMKID is every bit as inviting as it is educational, which is essential for ensuring kids can form a positive, lifelong bond with music. We’ve gleefully watched kids feel more able and encouraged to explore their own musical talent on the DRUMKID than with cumbersome, expensive traditional instruments. OBILAB knows that playing music at a young age is crucial; music has been proven to stimulate cognitive development in all areas.
And, the mobility of the DRUMKID means they can practice anywhere at any time. Bring the kit to the beach, on playdates, to family and friend events without worrying about making too much noise or carrying a ton of equipment. Hours of entertainment, learning, creativity, and fun all wrapped up inside one well-designed little OBILAB box.
