imageI was very excited when NOVICA contacted me about reviewing one of their products.  Have you ever heard of NOVICA?  NOVICA is a company associated with National Geographic where you can find thousands of fair trade gifts and home decor items from artisans around the world. They showcase a range of items that can be used as corporate gifts or something special for a friend ~ or yourself.

I really had a hard time deciding what to order since they have so many beautiful products!  I finally decided on the Wood djembe drum from Ghana.  I received email updates as to the status of my package as it traveled all the way from Ghana.

After about 10 days the drum arrived.  It came with a handwritten postcard from the artisan who crafted the drum.  Beautiful isn’t it?


The first thing my husband said when he saw the drum was “Your not going to let the kids play with that, are you?”  Not because he was concerned about the joyful noises they would be making with the drum ~ it was because he thought the drum was too beautiful for the kids to play with it.  His plan was to display it well out of reach from the kids.

As you can see from the picture below the kids have indeed been playing with the drum ~ and enjoying it very much!


It goes along perfectly with our geography studies this year, since it was crafted in West Africa, and it is a great addition to our musical instruments.


Thanks to NOVICA for providing me with the product to review. This review reflects my personal opinions.
