Drummer in a blender. Now that's an image. That is a big part of the attraction for many kids.
Kinetic energy. Loud noise. Excitement.
The second part?
The word "Play". Kids don't want another chore in their lives. The natural state for many kids is running in circles screaming in joy. They just want to have fun.
Drums supply that to kids of all ages. I know from personal experience. I've marched in two parades in through the French Quarter of New Orleans. It was insane fun. Loud and very silly. Thousands of happy people watching in amazement. Check that off my bucket list.
