Starter Drum Kits under £250 for Kids 

Playing the drums is simply FUN ! Outside of that learning to play the drums at an early age is great for  developing confidence, fitness, reducing stress, cognitive development, and can also be a powerful tool for children with special needs.   Starter drum kits for kids are a great idea. If your child wants a drum kit then why not give them the chance to play one and see if they take to it.

  • Does your child want the chance to play a drum kit ?
  • Want to build their confidence ?
  • Want to help their cognitive development ?
  • If the answers are YES the let’s have some fun !

Drums can be very expensive so a good plan is to buy a cheaper junior kit when they are young. If they don’t like playing and give up, you can sell it and haven’t lost to much money. You don’t want to pay a fortune for a drum set only for it to be left in a wardrobe or the attic. If they want to continue you can upgrade to  electronic or acoustic drums.

How to choose a Junior/Starter Drum Kit

Choosing the best drum kit for 5 year old can be difficult. I put together a list of 5 junior/starter drum kits suitable for kids from 4 to 10 years. These drum kits can also be enjoyed at all ages.

The key factors in choosing a drum kit for a child is their age and the size off the drums. Particularly the size bass drum (the big drum that your foot plays). If the bass drum is to big it makes it harder for a child to reach and play the other drums and cymbals when they’re sitting down. All the Starter Kits I’ve picked have a Bass Drum of 16″.

Included with all the drum kit is …

These starter drum kits have everything you need to get going, the drums, pedals, stool, sticks and cymbals. Simple set them up and play !

Take a look and find the ideal Junior Kit for your child.
