Let your digits do the drumming with this totally cute palm percussion set. All you have to do is find another instrument for your second hand, stuff a harmonica in your mouth and find when the next auditions are for America's Got Talent.

"We've seen finger drums before, but none as cartoonishly convincing as these. This $19.95 Electronic Drum Beat Maker has heads that light up when you hit them, and even the cymbal makes its own sound. Each part of the Finger Drum set plays its own rhythmic loop, and you can string together a sequence and record your compositions, later playing them back to the annoyance of all within earshot. Hey, wait a minute, doesn't that typeface on the bass drum remind you of the Beatles logo from the '60s, just a little bit?"

Implications - Miniature innovations are a constant source of fascination, providing consumers with a novelty appeal that infuses a sense of fantasy into everyday life.
