Before Kira actually started classes with the gang in their pod, Mimi thought it might be nice for her to meet another member of the group. She invited Wendy and Kira over to hang out one Saturday.
The first thing Kira noticed in Mimi’s bedroom were her Minion wall decorations! (yes, these are new and I’m not sure how well they are going to work as they tend to reflect light a bit too much…hmmm…) “I love Minions! Those are so cool!” “Thanks, I do too. You’ll love our friend Cassandra, she has a HUGE collection of Minions!”
“Guys, I have something really cool to show you, I just got it this week!”
Mimi pulled a big black backpack out of the corner of her room. “Oooo, I can’t wait to see it!” said Wendy.
Mimi laid the bag on the floor and unzipped it. “OH wow!!! A small xylophone bell set and a drum pad!! That’s so cool, I used to play the xylophone at my old school” said Kira excitedly.
“Would you like to try it out Kira, I haven’t really messed with it much yet” replied Mimi. “SURE!!!”
Kira definitely knew how to play, she was really good.
Then Mimi suggested a jam session. They made a makeshift stand out of her flute case for the drum pad so that Wendy could join too. Mimi grabbed her guitar.
The girls had a really great time playing together!
“I’m so glad you invited me over, this is so much fun!”
I think Kira is going to fit right in with the gang, don’t you?
I picked up the percussion kit from AG a few months ago, I used some of my rewards cash from the purchase of the surf van towards it. I knew I wanted this as soon as I saw it, it’s really a cute set!
I love the handles on the drumsticks and mallets. I’ve had some other items with straps on that didn’t work out so well, but these ones are perfect. You can get them realistically positioned. Now I finally have decent drumsticks for Jenny when The Beacons get back to playing too!
The bag is well thought out, even pockets to hold both sets of sticks! Everything fits in it easily too.
And it can be worn as a backpack.
Mimi currently has this now sitting in the corner of her bedroom with her guitars. That corner is getting a bit crowded now! The xylophone/bells are actually playable although I haven’t quite perfected hitting them to get the best tone. Practice, practice, practice! The only thing I didn’t like about this set is that you are expected to use the same stand to hold the drum pad. Thus the reason Wendy had to use an upturned flute case instead. I’m going to have to come up with something else because unfortunately, they made the stand out of plastic and I don’t know how well it would withstand frequent assembly/disassembly over time. This is my only criticism of this set, otherwise, I think it’s awesome!
The Beacons might have a little competition at this rate…
