    This reminds me of all those toys that you have for a large part of your early childhood that you never throw away because you were obsessed with them for so long and could never bear to see them leave.

    Add a hanging strap for a marching band! Louder drums can be made from the 5-gallon plastic buckets from paint/drywall compound.
