This is more than your average steel tongue drum! After years of experimenting with shapes, mounting systems and tuning techniques, the Nature's Instruments Egg Drum is ready! This patented design produces the best musical tone of all of our drums. The large version you see here is reminiscent of church bells, and the uniquely flexible base makes the drum wobble. We knew kids would play balancing games on the instruments, so we figured out how to make the drum sound better and make the balancing game more challenging. Ask us about custom finishes and sizes!

  • Developmental Value

    Sensory Processing: Auditory, Tactile, Proprioceptive, Vestibular
    Motor: Eye Hand Coordination, Balance, Coordination, Crossing at the Midline
    Cognitive: Problem-Solving, Focus, Memory, Attention, Comprehension
    Social/Emotional: Parallel, Joint or Cooperative Play, Turn-Taking, Self-Regulation
    Communication: Expressive and Receptive Language

    The egg drum provides auditory and tactile information at the same time, combining a low booming sound with a simultaneous vibration when children hit the tongue of the drum. It's great for children who seek more auditory input, and the vibration is a nice feature for children with hearing impairments, as well as children who enjoy the tactile input. Children can use mallets or their hands, encouraging crossing at the midline, motor planning opportunities and proprioceptive input. Children may stand on the egg drum if they wish, and since the drum is designed to wobble they will also experience a vestibular motion. One to four children can play parallel, jointly or cooperatively. Children can even be included by sitting or standing beside the drum to feel the vibrations. The egg drum provides a great opportunity for children and adults to sing along with the drumming.
