If you're into geeky things and/or don't have enough room for your traditional drum set, here's a wacky idea. ThinkGeek offers a playable drum set t-shirt! The shirt makes sounds when you touch one of the 7 drums featured in the shirt's design, each of which makes a different sound. The built-in speakers allow it to be heard an amazingly good distance away. The battery pack hides away neatly and holds 4 AAA batteries (not included), Prices range from $19.99 (XXL) to $29.99 USD (all other sizes). Not yet sold? Watch these videos. Looks like great fun! Here's the link to get your own.

Playable t-shirts are not your thing? We got you covered. Try these finger drums instead. They don't take a lot of room on your desk (6.5" X 5.5" X 3"). The set features 5 different drums, each with a different sound. Unexpected extras include LEDs that light when striking the drums, record and playback, and the bass drum has a working pedal. The set runs on 3 AAA batteries (again, not included). This set is available from ThinkGeek or Vat19. Here are some great videos of the drums in action.
