This is a drum made of wood, with paper drum heads. There are beaters on metal strips, mounted to the head of the drum. It is played by shaking the drum back and forth, which causes the beaters to spring against the head. Each drumhead is decorated with the scene from a fairytale; on one side is little red riding hood and the Wolf, and on the other, Hansel and Gretel and the witch. This drum is similar to a Japanese den-den daiko.
