A: Great entertainer, but...
I bought this book to help keep our 20-month-old entertained on a plane ride. She absolutely LOVES this book. She wants to play with it all the time. The only problem is that after just a few days, the sound on the song buttons got really fuzzy. We replaced the batteries but it didn't help. We decided it was the speaker that is the problem. I tried to return it to the book store where I bought it, but didn't have my receipt, so I couldn't return it or exchange it. However, I will be buying this again. But this time I'll save my receipt in case I have the same problem.
B: This product is a good intro to piano
I got this for my 4 year old to get him familiar with the piano keys and listening to music and playing by ear.
I like how the keys have lights on them as you are trying to play the song back. That is a helpful visual tool.
Some of the songs are not as familiar as I would have liked, but catchy nonetheless. One thing I would change would be to make the colors that are above the keys more prominent, or to make the actual keys colored.Great learning tool.
