The Zoo Jamz Stompin' Fun Drums has games galore. The electronic set plays a number of songs and games designed to teach counting, memory, rhythm, colors and more, via four settings. The first teaches counting, the next two teach memory (one by "popping the bubbles", a.k.a. tapping the color that lights up during the songs, and the other is similar to the "Simon" game, where kids have to remember a pattern during a song). Master one level of games and move to the next, And in the free style setting, young Ringo Starrs can play along with sing-alongs, or tap to their own beat.

Adult assembly takes time, but isn't overwhelming. Student learning curve is simple: press the Drum Style Buttons to select the style of drums to play. Tap the drum pads or step on the pedal to play the drums. The set includes, a drum set panel, cymbal, two drumsticks, a pedal, an elephant bass drum, two elephant feet and one elephant trunk, a stool and instruction guide. And yes, a volume control and automatic shut off.
