This is a colourful little piano for kids aged 9 months to 3 years, and will start your little one off on their exploration of music.

Baby sized piano


This playful piano offers three different modes of use:

-one for learning time where when you hit the keys, they light up and the piano sings out the number you have pressed.
- one for musical time where the piano plays a song but lights up the keys for the child to see what to play. The songs being played co-ordinate with the storybook which the child can flick through to choose which song to play. Choose from twinkle twinkle, incy wincy spider and row row row your boat. The storybook pictures tells you which note to play (in numbers)

The interactive storybook


- one for imagination time, where you press the keys to hear the notes. This is good for kids creating their own tunes or to play along with the notes in the story book.

The extras at the back of the piano


Each of these modes also alters the functionality of the fun bits at the back of the piano. Dependent upon the mode of the piano, you can learn about speed and tempo (slow or fast), pitch, and enjoy fun sound effects.

Perfect sized for babies


The piano is a perfect height for babies who can sit at the piano and bang on the keys of piano to create sounds and lights, but I wouldn't say it is a toy that would hold the attention of an older child for any great length of time. It is designed for up to 36 months of age, and there is definitely some educational value in the toy for this age group, but kids of this age are likely a bit too big for the toy.

This is a sturdy toy, and due to its plastic nature, will easily wipe clean and so retains a good look for many years of use. Our first son used this toy, and it barely looks used even now that our second toy is banging out his tunes on it. My one word of warning for this toy is that on the Fisher Price adverts for the toy (see photo below), it is regularly shown with an infant standing up and leaning onto the piano. Whilst this is possible, the piano itself isn't that heavy, so kids will easily move the piano and so if you've got a little one who's learning to toddle, they may easily fall over when the piano slides away. It's sturdy but it certainly won't stay put if a child is leaning on it excessively.
