Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids can create their own impressive sounding beats using this one-of-a-kind sound toy.

Is it any good?


Creating a beat to listen or dance to is as easy as launching this app and double tapping the screen. Two color balls bounce off each other in a repeating pattern. Three different modes offer distinctive percussion, African or steel drum sounds. Change either ball's trajectory for a different mix. The number of rhythms are endless and so is the fun.
