Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made African monkey drum

A simple percussion instrument popular with children, the monkey drum is fun and easy to play. These monkey drums from Percussion Plus are hand-made in Kenya and are decorated with a variety of brightly coloured designs and patterns.

By rotating the drum between your palms, you can create a double beat with the swinging beaters striking the drum skins. Increase speed and the ferocity of your spins for a louder, more intense sound, or play softer by rolling the drum gently between your fingers.

These African monkey drums are made using sustainable resources and are sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

Develop and learn

The act of rolling the instrument between your fingers is the perfect way to develop fine motor skills in young children; they will also have fun with the varied sounds and bright colours for a full sensory experience. The drum is also great for use in music therapy sessions, in schools and for recordings.
