Carved Monkey Drum
This beautiful monkey drum has a a head made from the skin of a gourd. The picture has been handcarved into the skin in a similar way to a lithograph. Each one is a work of art.
Handmade in Kenya and fairly traded to support the artisans who make them.
Some pieces have shells on the strings, others have small pieces of wood or beads. Due to the handmade nature of these monkey drums, each piece is unique. Your monkey drum will be selected at random.

Our fair trade items are not toys so any use with children should be supervised.
Inquisitarium was founded on the belief that children learn through play and that toys and books have the power to spark wonder and cultivate a curious personality. We love sourcing the best toys that provide a sensory experience or teach the child something valuable. We are also completely addicted to children's books; our favourites are the beautifully illustrated ones with factual details seamlessly woven into a good bedtime story.
The name 'inquisitarium' aims to create a feeling of place for the sense of being inquisitive, curious and questioning about the universe. It also sounds like a terrarium, which fits wonderfully with our efforts to be green.
We are constantly learning about what it is to have an eco-friendly and sustainable business, and subsequently adapting our business processes and approach to product design and packaging to limit our environmental impact.
