We are proud to feature Percussion Frogs from Earth Treasures Us. The company works directly with communities in Thailand, supporting a variety of cottage industries and family-operated enterprises.
Based on an ancient Vietnamese drum, the Percussion Frogs are one of the most popular items at our Long Beach store, and all you have to do is give one a stroke with the included mallet to understand why. Each frog is hand carved from a single piece of untreated first quality monkey pod wood, a fast growing, non-endangered, tropical fruit wood. Each Percussion Frog has its own unique sound, depending on the size of the hollowed cavern and the wood density. Generally, the small frogs sound like peepers or tree frogs, and the larger ones resonate in deeper tones like bullfrogs. To play, hold the frog by the hind legs, and use the large end of the mallet to stroke from the base of the spiky spine to the head. Croaky fun for the whole family!
