Hey Wendy, this is so beautifully designed and the sentiment is perfect for little boys. Perhaps some of the mum's on here could ask their little boys to give their opinion if hearts are too soppy? Then you'd know for sure! I'd love to hear about this myself, as I was wondering how boys feel about romantic things at that age...

feedback welcome - do I need to put Happy Valentine's Day on this? Or is it clear / obvious enough when it's handed out.... ?

Too cute, what if it said my "heart beats for you" and the drum stick heads were red hearts. With that change I don't think you will need the happy valentines.

Yes, I thought about doing the "my heart beats" but then I thought boys around the age of 9 (which is the top of the demographic Minted mentioned) might not like passing that around, lol... so I tried to leave any "romance" out of it. hmmm.... __________________________________________ ETA: Okay I added the HVD message and the tiniest of tiny hearts... :-D

I love this! Works great the way it is as a boy version. Maybe you could alter the colors and do those few changes stacey mentioned and have a different version for a girl.

I do think you need something Valentiney on there, the wording or maybe make the ends of the drumsticks hearts?
