It is absolutely a great tool to stimulate a children’s mind."

"It’s a really great way to use creativity and rhythm and wrap it into a whole lot of fun."

"What’s cool about this one is that you can actually string together a bunch of sequences to play out a longer tune, rather than just a short loop. Plus, each of the three animals can be made to play a different instrument."

For young musicians of all kinds!

For young musicians of all kinds, Monkey Drum, is a fun app for creating music. It's fun for kids to watch the silly monkey play the song that they just created. There are multiple instruments and sounds. Watch the monkey (or other charachter, if you get the Deluxe version) react when you feed him bananas, make him spin, or bop him on the head. Too cute! This app is fun for younger kids as well as older kids.

A Hit for the Kids

I have four children. One ten, one eight, one three, and one almost one year. The three older ones love making music while waiting for bananas to drop. Even the one year old tries to touch the screen when I play. Plus the cool customization of the three charaters is fun as well. Let's not forget about the music maker. Hours of fun for your family.

Fun for kids and parents too

This is a cute app with a lot more going on then it seems at first glance. Kids can have fun just poking around but for those who want more you can compose some pretty cool tunes with an easy interface. I also really appreciate the creators no ads in the app policy! Thanks!
