I am writing this review on Christmas morning 2012. My son just opened this item from Santa and we learned that an expensive custom tablet is required to make this kit actually make noise. The description for the items now reads about an accessory for a Kindle light which is wrong. The online description of this item when I bought it online described this as a fun, portable drum set. There was no mention that an expensive tablet needs to be purchased with it. The box does not indicate that the tablet needs to be purchased separately either. The box suggests that you can buy accessories but it reads like headphones or other musical instruments, not the custom tablet. Additionally, there doesn't appear to be an app so that we can plug this into a computer or tablet otherwise. Now I'm stuck with a piece of rubber that doesn't interact or make noise.
