Silvery Metal TOY MARCHING DRUM, Sticks, Noble & Cooley - eBay (item 310019464534 end time Feb-07-08 18:17:07 PST)
This drum and drum sticks comes in the original box sleeve that's marked, "55-8, Not recommended for children under three years of age. Toy Marching Drum, Noble & Cooley." The sides, rims and three springs holding it together are all metal, the skins are not. I don't know what they're made of, something sturdy but it's not leather.
Noble & Cooley make real drums and musical toys. Research has shown that children exposed to music and instruments at an early age have significantly improved their ability to think and learn. http://www.musicaltoys.net/
The drum is 8 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches high. The two drum sticks are 7 3/4" by 3/8". The skins are unmarked. There are many marks on the shiny silver rims and a few minor scratches on the sides.
