Editorial Review

Music stimulates the brain and encourages early learningskills. This interactive cube lets children choose from any combinationof five different instruments--harp, French horn, piano, flute, andviolin--to collaborate on eight Mozart tunes. A solo flute might playan excerpt from "Ah! Vous Dirai-je, Maman (Twinkle, Twinkle)," or aFrench horn intone a theme from The Marriage of Figaro. Otherchoices include "Country Dance #5," "Come Sweet May," "Der Vogelfanger"(from The Magic Flute), "March in D," "Landler," and "LàCi Darem la Mano" (from Don Giovanni). Press the "orchestra"button and hear all the instruments play together. As the songs play,each selected instrument button flashes to the beat. The sound is notorchestral quality, but you get a fair electronic approximation of eachinstrument. Operates on three AA batteries (not included). --TamiHoriuchi ... Read more

fabulous for babies and toddlers
My daughter loved this toy when she was six months old, and still loves it at 18 months. I have had no durability issues, and when I noticed the instruments playing out of sync I replaced the batteries, which solved the problem. I love that she can select different instruments to listen to, and that it exposes her to more than the usual canned electronic baby music... she now has a love for instrumental music! This is a fantastic addition to her toybox.

Great music, but it doesn't hold my son's interest.
I seem to be more interested in this toy than my 8 month old. There are lots of beautiful songs and the music is very high quality for an electronic toy. It's too bad my son doesn't like to play with it, because the music is so much nicer to listen to than any of his other toys!

BEST toy we have, by far!
This toy was given to me for my 1 yr old daugther. She is almost 2 yrs now, and she still LOVES playing with it. It is very durable, considering how much she tosses it (and that another baby played with it before they gave it to us). Also, we have only had to change the batteries once. We take it with us every where we go, and it has served us very well in the car - especially in those moments when she just doesn't want to be put in the car seat. It has been very educational as well, in that she can now identify each instrument by name and picture, and presses the appropriate button. She will keep playing the instruments over and over - and yet we don't get tired of it either. This is one of the best toys we have, by far.

He loved it- while it lasted
This toy gets my son's attention- and did since he got it for his first Christmas (9 months)- but unfortunately, it is NOT DURABLE. You cannot let the child actually play with the toy- if they throw it at all, it's history. And guess what- most babies throw things when they get excited. They tend to drop things, too- the toy is heavy for a small child. He loved the lights, and he loved pressing teh big buttons- the music is not too bad, either- but for the cost, you want it to be durable so the baby can play with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best toy yet!
My parents gave this to my daughter when she was three months old, and she seemed to like the musical sounds as we pressed the buttons. She is now eight months old, and she STILL loves it! It is her favorite toy. At 5 months, we would put it between her legs for balance while she learned to sit up, and she would make the music play. Now she's learning to crawl, and she always goes for this toy! The music is NOT annoying, and we enjoy listening to it as much as she does. We feel like she will enjoy this toy for a long time to come! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Even electronic toys have gone extreme. Kids love the original Bop It, an electronic toy that challenges response time to pull, twist, and bop different parts of the toy. The Extreme 2 version adds two more tasks, more sounds, and a taunting, smart-aleck announcer who directs the game. As you get better, the game moves faster until you miss a beat and lose, accompanied by a fair amount of noise and ridicule from the toy. People who don't think they'd ever want to play Bop It Extreme 2 won't be able to put it down; it instills a compulsive need to bop till you drop. It can be played in a group and makes a good party game--even for serious adults. --Lynne Sampson ... Read more

The Best game!
Bop it Extreme 2 is the best! My sister got it for her birthday but, I love playing it! Before I could only get 1 or 2 but, now I have 38.
I play it when I wake up, when I have extra time, & before I go to bed!
I like all the things you can play on it and, that it has a volume control and, that it tells you what the high score is.
This game is really fun! People should purchase this item.

Bop it extreme 2 vs Bop it extreme
Hi, I'm a 19 years old college student attending UCSD. I live in a suit with other students and we use to hang out, but we got nothing to do. I decided to buy this toy to promote some social interactions. To my surprise, everybody just jumps in and have a blast. We played endless Pass it! games. It REALLY trains your reflex skill. I find it so much fun that I had to write a review, which I rarely do.

As for the difference between the Bop It Extreme and the Bop It Extreme 2 versions.(I had this question when I buy this toy)
1) The Bop It Extreme 2 version has 3 levels of volume, while the Bop It Extreme has one LOUD volume.
2) The Bop It Extreme 2 has an earphone jack for personal enjoyment, while the Bop It Extreme doesn't.
3) The Bop It Extreme 2 TELLS you at the end your score(i.e. "You scored forty-eght"), while the Bop It Extreme plays different sounds to denote score(i.e. "whistle, whistle, rachet, rachet, rachet, drum, drum, drum, drum"). Hence requiring you to count and decipher which sound worth more points than other.
4) The Bop It Extreme 2 has more music than the Bop It Extreme as advertised.
5) The Bop It Extreme 2 has rubber grip and better grip-mold for the Spin it! wheel.
6) The Bop It Extreme 2 just looks much cooler, hands down! :D

Playing this game Solo is fun, but get together w/ your friends and you all will have a BLAST!

NOT soooo great,
VERY,VERY noisey. It is hard for me to get a high score. They whant you to do it so fast. (Yes, I know a game should be challinging.) And to tell you it takes a odd number of batterys,3 of 'em. One time the batterys got corroded so it made it hard to get out. I never did play with it again. The sound got scratchy too. (...)I do not recomend any of the Bop It toys to anyone.

So much better then Extreme 1!
Wow! This is a pretty fun game. The original was so loud and annoying, and the speaker was tinny. Bop it Extreme 2, though a little easier, is so much better. It also has a Bop It button that is less prone to getting accidentally hit.

EXTREME fun for all ages!!!
Bought as a gift for my son, the whole family has enjoyed this unique little gizmo. I can't help but think that this must help with thinking skills. Totally portable, it's a favorite at sleep-overs... it's even more popular than Gameboy, and that's saying something. A very healthy family game! ... Read more

Editorial Review

First Act's Student Guitar is an excellent choice for children who are just beginning to play theguitar. It's areduced 30 inches long, rather than a full-size model adults would use. Made with lightweightwood and steel strings, the guitar features a steel-reinforced neck and a high-gloss protective finish thatwears well and looks good for the long haul. The low string action design of the fret board makes it easyfor small fingers to strike chords without discomfort. A smaller, kid-friendly guitar makes the wholelearning experience less stressful and more fun. It comes complete with strap button and pick guard. Thestrap and pick are not included.--S. J. Kurtz ...

3-0 out of 5 stars hmmm?
After reading the reviews listed here, I felt compelled to write one of my own. I too purchased one of these guitars for my child who showed an interest in the same. I thought this would be a great beginning for her instead of buying one, or renting one for lots of money just to maybe find out later she didn't like it. So far, I have had no trouble with this product, however, I have taught my daughter to handle the guitar with care eventhough it was labeled a "toy".
It's durability could be made a little better, however, it is apparent the instrument was built with affordability in mind. In short, the wood seems very fragile, however it is small and light for children.
As for tuning the guitar, I had it tuned by a professional who had no trouble doing the same, and concurred it was a good start for my daughter without having a lot of investment. He also showed me how to tune it myself so I may also show her, and to avoid the possible risk of her or I snapping the strings.

I believe the hardest part in teaching guitar to a child, is knowing what book to buy! After careful research and discussion with others, I would recommend purchasing First Act's Learn & Play Guitar book & video which is an excellent resource for the very, very beginner. After that, I recommend buying other books as the child progresses at a music store with professional recommendation.
In summary, I feel this product is a good starting point for children and their parents alike, however, please understand eventhough it is labeled a "toy", the guitar still needs to be handled with care, and if tuned too tight, the strings will break as with any guitar. In all, I feel it is a good product for children provided they know how to respect it. I will keep you posted on its'performance.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great toy, not tunable
My 3 year old loves this guitar. He is so into music. We are buying him his third one, though. Each one has lasted about 1 year. I still think they are sturdy. He is pretty rough with them. This guitar is a perfect toy for a child who loves music and wants to imitate adults he sees playing. (My husband plays.) However, this is not a real playable guitar in the sense that you cannot tune it correctly. Everytime my husband tries to tune it the strings break. This has happened on both guitars we've had repeatedly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun play guitar
My son LOVES his guitar. Because this guitar looks like a real guitar, my four year old thinks he knows how to play. However, it never stays in tune, and now after 1 1/2 years, it is cracked and needs replacement. This is great if your child isn't ready to really learn to play, since it will rarely stay in tune, but great fun for the music enthusiatist who only wants to play along with his/her favorite musician.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very fun!
I first found out about this guitar when my 11 year old neighbor got one. She brought it over to my house to show me. At first I never thought I would be interested in a guitar because I play the trumpet and I thought it would be hard to learn to play 2 instruments. Whenever I go over to her house I always ask if I could play it and now I can play a chromatic scale on it. This should not be considered a toy because it is a real instrument. Sadly it seems like the strings are not very strong and I'm always afraid of them snapping.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Guitar
My six-year-old expressed an interest in playing guitar with me. I was hesitant about the First Act Guitar due to it's low price and thought I would have to pay much more for a good student guitar. However, I purchased the First Act Acoustic and have been enjoying my time with my daughter ever since.

The guitar has a good sound and tone, is easy to tune and plays very well. I can use it to demonstrate chords and strumming so that my daughters (my five year old is now playing too) can hear what it will sound like on their guitar.

Playable, affordable and fun ... who could ask for more! ... Read more

Good piano but the stool breaks easily
I bought this last Christmas for my three year old and five year old. Thesound of the piano is a little off, but all in all the piano is nice for the price. The leg of the stool breaks very easily. Don't buy unless you can fix.

Good product for the price!
My wife and I knew we wanted to get a toy piano for our little girl, and struggled somewhat with what brand and price range to stick with. I'm glad to have come across this little jewel! Our girl, though only one year old now, plays with it frequently, and likes to hear other people play it. When she's hiding somewhere or getting into mischief, I'll just hit a few keys and she'll come crawling out of wherever she was hiding to join me.

Keep in mind this is a *TOY* piano--don't expect a grand piano sound out of a toy. This utilizes small metal rods of varying lengths in the interior of the instrument to produce the sound, which is a clear, pleasant tinkling; much like a windchime. One note was a bit sour, but I solved this by removing the top cover (4 screws), and adjusting the appropriate metal rod. These slide back and forth with gentle pressure, so it is possible to tune the instrument perfectly. The legs of the piano and stool can loosen over time, but you can easily solve this with a couple drops of loc-tite solution.

There are more well-known name brands and better workmanship out there, but I'm glad not to have spent more than was necessary for a decent quality instrument.

Sound is not very good
My 2 year old son got this for Christmas last year and was initially very excited because he loves music. However the piano has a very tinny sound and doesn't even come close to a real piano sound. Also the stool and piano legs have to be tightened often and can come off quite easily. ... Read more

Review of Hohner Acoustic Guitar with Songbook
The Hohner Acoustic Guitar seems to be well crafted. The hardware seems to be of good quality and the sound is good for a "toy" guitar. The songbook, well......it has a lot to be desired. So don't buy it for the book. It has three songs in the "U.S.A." section and the directions for using the book and the 'dots' are too vague for me and my child to understand. Therefore, playing the three songs in the book is virtually impossible.

Looks used---songbook is a pamphlet
I just ordered this guitar for my 8 year old. The guitar is new but made very poorly, it has nic's and scratches all over it. There are also very visable glue splatters on various parts. The guitar is much smaller than I was expecting. This would be a good gift as a toy for 6 years old and younger.

bought because it's a guitar not educational value
This is a toy I bought because my son in obsessed with my husband's guitar. It is by far his favorite present and he enjoys playing songs for me (La Chita, I don't know what this means). It may sound silly to buy a 20 mo old a guitar but he plays it every day and even sleeps with it. He may not be Eric Clapton but this I feel is a good first step.

Waste of money
I bought also because of glowing reviews and had a young beginner. I'm not sure how this qualifies for anything but a toy instrument for 3-5 year olds. A waste of money. ... Read more

Editorial Review

This lacquered child's guitar is a great first instrument for young enthusiasts, or kids who just want to jam with an adult. It embodies every feature professional electric guitars do; all parents need to supply are lessons. At 30 inches, it's not intimidating but inviting. Its just the right size for elementary school amateurs, but its small, smooth body (including a solid maple neck and fingerboard), real steel strings, and "vintage" coil make it sound and feel as real as a grownup's guitar. A headphone jack can be used for speakers, and the output jack next to it can be used for the amplifier.--Diane Beall ... Read more

Excellent beginner electric guitar for the younger set
If you have an aspiring guitarist who is ages: 4-8 who likes to emulate the "big boys" then get this guitar for the following reasons:

1. My 4 year old thought it "looked cool"
2. Has the amp and speaker built-in which makes it portable.
3. Is made by First Act which has proven to be reliable for my family of a 6 yr old girl and 4 yr old boy (we have had their acoustic guitar for a couple of years)

The educational value is what you make of it....right now, my son who has only had his electic guitar for a total of 2 weeks has begged me to bring it to school for sharing (I finally relented after checking it with the teacher) and has been pestering me for lessons. It's the lessons which make it educational - the guitar by itself is not educational, per se.

Have fun!

ok
the toy is just a little bit to small for kids 10 and older.if your looking into getting a guitar look for a diffrent one besides this one

COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
This is so cool.The best part is that you do not need a Amp because it comes with it.Kids can learn how to play music.It does make alot of noise (it depends how high the volume is)it is worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kiddy
I was expecting a REAL guitar. this is a stupid little toy for kids. it would still be fun. IF I WAS 4! jk jk. its cool for a little kid.

Clear your throat and drink that honey-lemon tea: It's time toplay Encore, the game of dueling larynxes. The goal is to come up witha song that contains particular words--and then sing lines from thesong that contains those words. Here's how it works: The first teamturns up a card featuring five words; the two teams then take turnssinging at least six words of any song that contains one of those five.The round continues until one team is stumped, which, if the word is"love," could take a while. But repetition is not allowed, and forevery "said" and "moon," there's a "highway" or "piano"--whaddya dowhen you've exhausted the Billy Joel songbook? And it's great to draw alyric that's in a song title, but if you don't know five others thatcome after, you'll be like the player who drew "nice"; he spent theentire run of the sand timer with his shoulders hunched like Sinatrabecause he couldn't connect "and let's make all the stops along theway" with the song's title, "Nice 'N' Easy." Oh, and don't play Encorewith Renaissance Faire actors--when they draw the word "lady," they'llcome up with an inexhaustible supply of 15th-century madrigals. Onlyafter they've won will you discover that they were all bogus. --TonyMason ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game, depending who you play with
The premis for this game is intruiging and fun -- to be able to come up with a song that has lyrics that use words identified by the game.

The reason I gave the game 4 stars, however, is that I had an awful experience the first time I played the game. Here's the scoop...the group I played with included my father-in-law (a country music singer) and young brother-in-law (a rap fan). They repeatedly claimed and sang songs and tunes I had never heard of. I'm not saying that any cheating went on, but I was so far out of the loop about the songs they were choosing that there was no way to tell who was winning and who was losing. Well, OK, I was losing.

This can be a fun game if played with your musical peers. It can be a major disaster otherwise.

I hope this insight helps someone out there.

Favorite Board Game
My family LOVES this game. You never know where your inspiration will come from; in my house we've gone from Sinatra to Dead Kennedys to vacation bible school songs. You spend as much time laughing as singing! Forget musical talent! As long as you know the words and can closely approximate the tune, you're golden.

The Best Game Ever
We are big game players and have never had more fun with any other game. It's great for a party of adults, for adults with kids, for college kids...whatever. People always talk about it weeks after we play. Our middle school son and his friends will always join in if they see us playing with friends which says a great deal!! We've played with all of our friends, our kids, both sets of parents (!), relatives, my minister, people from other countries and people we didn't know at all. I would say it's the perfect icebreaker but you won't stop playing. LOL They put the board back in which is great. There should be a tv show! Our 17 year old would be world champ!

Love it!
This has been a favorite game of mine for years. I've played it with many friends and they always love it. It's great with a big group of people too. I'm glad to see it's available again.

Encore is a terrific name!
You'll want to play this game again and again. It works with a few people and it works with a crowd of 100. My parents love it, my teenage sons love it, and my friends went out and bought their own. You'll be thinking about it days later and looking forward to the next time. I've given alot as gifts and people are always excited by it. College kids go nuts over it. Trust me, you won't regret getting one. (or two, or three...) ... Read more

Great drum for your little drummer boy....
We bought this drum for our (now) 3 1/2 year old son about a year ago. He LOVED it!!! He played it every day, but after awhile, the drum head got a lot of little dents in it and it eventually just caved in. But, a year's worth of fun and music is well worth (...)

Super cute, super fun!
We bought this for our 2 1/2 year old Thomas fan. It's really cute and rather reasonably priced. My son loves to bang on his drum, and dance around the living room. He plays it quite often and we've had it for about 6 months, so far we've had absolutely NO problems with the drum falling apart or getting dented up like some of the other reviews have mentioned. Bottom line: great toy for any music/Thomas fan.

Great drum
This is a great drum! It hangs comfortably around the neck of the child & comes with two drumsticks. It has a good tone for a toy drum, and so far it has held up well (6 months) having one small dent on the side. My son plays with it often. Buy the book, "hands, hands, finges thumb" to go with it and your child will be charmed. I will read the book aloud and my son will beat his drum to the rhythm of the story.

5-0 out of 5 stars almost a great toy
The look of this drum is wonderful, and it is a lot of fun. My son loved to put the strap around his neck and march in his parade. The drum looks like an heirloom toy, but ours will never become one. It completely fell apart (it was not abused) and we were unable to reassemble it. ... Read more

We're groovin', we're movin', we're boppin'! This hilarious game requires speedy reflexes and a rhythm section in the brain!Musical and spoken commands instruct players to "Twist it! Pull it!Bop it! Pass it!" Electronic impulses move the random play faster and faster; players have to keep up or risk the disappointment-filled recorded scream: "Aoowww!" Played alone or with a group, Bop It keeps score and keeps the beat. All the players have to do is keep on bopping, pulling, and twisting the button, knob, and ratchet! Cymbals crashing, bass drum booming, whistles shrieking ... who can resist?The 15-inch turquoise, black, purple, and yellow toy requires 3 AA batteries (not included).

4-0 out of 5 stars Bop It - Is it a game or is it real?
So, I'm minding my own business, doing my work, when my boss runs up to me with Bop It. "You've got to try this!" he demands, a maniacal look in his eye. I gingerly take the odd plastic toy. It looks like some tribal weapon, a misshapen club. My boss smacks the large "Bop It!" button, and immediatly the thing starts emitting a drum beat. Convinced it's possessed by some ancient god, I'm about to cast it away when it yells, "Bop it!" I instinctively hit the button. The drums continue. "Pull it!", the toy barks. I desperately yank on one end. The drums continue. "Twist it!" is the next command. Twist what?! I panic, then make a grab for the little twister device on the other end. "AAAaargh!!!" yells the machine, like a man falling off a caldera into molten lava. I was too late! The drums stop.

My hands shaking, I put the toy down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Teacher excited about Bop-It
Bop-It has been an excellent addition to my first grade classroom. This game is in high demand each morning as students actually wait in a line to play! What's most exciting is while students think they're simply playing a fun game, they are also enhancing their eye-hand coordination as well as their auditory skills. This is a game that parents and children can play together and both enjoy! Bop-It, a durable and relatively inexpensive toy, is one I would highly recommend to game lovers of all ages.

Great game for many ages
Bop-it is a very fun game for many people. It tests your reflexes in a fun way. It's also nice it has so many different games to play.

Bop It For Road Trips!
I had no idea Bop It was so much fun. I am a mom of 4, my oldest is a nine yr old boy. He got this for Christmas last year.We went on a 9 hour road trip over the summer. My son decided to bring Bop It. I thought it might distract my husband while he was driving, the only distraction was that he wanted to play.I couldn't resist myself. We ended up having a contest to see who could get the farthest. My son won with a score of 99. It is a great toy for concentrating and motor skills.Even my 5 year old played, though he was a little young for it. It was an absolute blast. We played with it for hours.

Designed for very young children, this is a charming piano withfour large, easy-to-depress square keys in green, blue, red, and orange.When the keys are played, the metal xylophone-style strips on top of thepiano produce sweet chiming sounds. This little piano will enchant yourchild, teach basic colors, and demonstrate a few fundamentals of music.Surprisingly, the notes are delightful even when played all at once--aunique quality in a toy piano. --Sandy Hirsch ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great starter musical toy!
As musicians, my husband and I hope to foster a love of music in our children, so we're happy Little Tikes makes musical instruments. I lucked out and got this at a garage sale, but however you get it, this makes a great first instrument for the young 'uns. The four keys outline a major chord and are easy to bang on. My daughter likes to have me sing back the notes she's playing! However, she is nearing 2 1/2, and is more than ready for the full octave piano--there are SO many basic tunes you can play on that one! So her baby brother can play on this one! We love just about anything Little Tikes makes, for their durability, colors, educational value, or just plain fun! If you can get only one, however, go with the full octave piano, as other reviewers have recommended!

Star them out early ...
My daughter loves this toy. I got it for her because she loves to pound on things ... the keys are so easy to hit & she loves that she can do it herself. Higly recommend this toy.

Great Starter Piano
Good size for little learning hands. Sure there are others out there but it is exciting to see your little one use this piano independently.

Daycare Durable!
Smarter Toddler Daycare in NYC has a great music program so they have a couple of these pianos and I have seen my daughter and her toddler classmates really rough them up. This is an incredibly durable starter piano and it is easy for little fingers to press.

Great toy, small babies will enjoy
I haven't actually purchased this toy but my 6-month old daugther plays with it a lot at daycare. It seems to be her favorite toy there and I often leave her in the morning banging on the four keys too busy to notice anything else. It is a great early piano as it is easy to manipulate; the keys are wide enough for babies who are still working on hand coordination to target specific keys. Given that my baby loves it so much, I would give this toy five stars. I have come to the conclusion that baby reactions are the best way to evaluate any toys. ... Read more

Juice Your Casio Keyboard
Why waste money on batteries? That there would be crazy.

Get this handy little item and play forever.

Just make sure you get the right adapter for the right keyboard.

Duh...

Works great for me
I got a Casio keyboard for xmas, and, considering it's size and quality, I was a little disapponted that it didn't come with a power supply (integrated or external (integrated would've been better)) but the next day I went to Toys R Us and bought this little gem and now all is fine.

Wrong Adaptor
I, like the other customers. ordered this adaptor based on the recommendation from the site, and was disappointed when, on Christmas Eve, I realized this was not right for the keyboard we had ordered. This situation was particularly misleading since the adaptor was practically "bundled" for sale with a product for which it is not compatible.

Wrong Adapter
We bought also the keybord and the adapter (as recommended) and it does not fit. I already tried to buy a new one, but it is not available.

Wrong Adapter
We ordered the Casio keyboard for our son Marcelo, and on X-Mas day we realize that the adapter recommended for this keyboard at hte site does not works for this specific keyboard. Now I have to use batteries, and do not know where can I buy the right adapter. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Your child probably doesn't know Lawrence Welk or the accordion he toted around so famously for years. That should work in the favor of this sturdy, enjoyable instrument. Compact and well built, this starter instrument is a great introduction to the accordion--or just a lot of ephemeral fun. The accordion fits nicely into the palms of an adult's hands, but isn't too unwieldy for its target audience. The number of keys are minimized for ease of use and simplicity, but it's still possible to crank out a complex favorite such as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" (a brief "basic instructions" leaflet is enclosed) only 10 minutes after the instrument's out of the box. --Keith Simanton ...

4-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!
This was a Xmas present for my children. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the sound quality - quite realistic! It is very durable. The bellows are constructed of paper but it is very heavy-duty. It does, however, require some muscle to expand and coordination to use the buttons - so it is better for an older child.

4-0 out of 5 stars fun little accordion
I, too, was surprised at the quality of sound of this instrument. It's also fun to play and easy to navigate -- you a/o your child will soon be picking out tunes with a minimum amount of practice. The only reservations I have are: 1) there are only three songs included in the instruction sheet; and 2) the accordion is designed for right-handed individuals; however, the thumb strap on the key side that could probably be removed and re-applied in order to make it playable by left-handers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprized
I was very pleased with this item. I had not expected such a nice tone from it. My 6 year old grandson was giving "concerts" the same night he opened his present. Amazingly, his "music" is quite nice to hear. This is definitely not another "noise making" toy. You will like it very much.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rockin' Accordion
I've had this accordion for about a year and a half, and every time I pull it out and play a tune, I have far too much fun. While I'd like to be able to play recognizable tunes other than the 3 that came with the accordion, improv is a buch o' fun, and just about anything you do will sound good. I am 18 years old, and it still entertains me, so I'm sure it will be even more fun for younger kids.

4-0 out of 5 stars Accordion Reviewed
This accordion doesn't look too classy in its construction and manufacture. However, the sound is strong and it does sound like an accordion. I'm just worried that the pleated section, which is constructed out of paper may puncture, although the creases are reinforced by some strong tape. As I have yet to give the item, I really don't know how long the same will last if played by a 3-4 year old. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The accordion is a fascinating instrument that is normally too large and ponderous for children to manipulate.Now there's an accordion that's sized-down and simplified for young children.At rest, this purple, plastic accordion measures a compact 7 inches long, 7 inches wide, and 4 inches deep.The bellows can be extended for a total instrument length of approximately 14 inches.A plastic hand strap and thumb loop are nicely sized for small hands and provide for easy compression and expansion of the bellows.The key system is vastly simplified from the traditional accordion: there is a harmonic button, a bass button, and a breath button for the left hand and there are seven button keys for the right hand.Because the right hand buttons produce a different note depending on whether the accordion is being expanded or compressed, 14 distinct notes can be played.The instruction booklet includes a brief history of the accordion, directions for play, and several sample songs to ensure instant musical success. --Tami Horiuchi ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Hours of Fun for Anyone!
This instrumental toy is one of the greatest I have seen (or played with). It provided my friend and me with many laughs and tons of enjoyment. It kept us amused and jolly. I recommend this toy for just about anyone who loves to play. Be careful not to press the buttons too hard: one of them could get stuck.

good durable toy
We have now had it for over 2 years and between 4 kids and their many friends and cousins, it still lives! Whenever it is found it is played with. Yeah sure the keys get stuck occasionally, but if that happens you just wiggle the end a little bit and presto everything goes back. Worth the money!

Does not last
I had read other reviews regarding the keys getting stuck. I bought for Christmas anyway, and my four-year-old son loved it. The keys threatened to stick on many occasions, and the instrument finally broke on March 7. Six of the seven keys on one side only blow air. I'm not sure what to do because he wants another one.

A Fun Musical Instrument
The accordian is the type of musical instrument a child or a
grandma can have fun playing, and First Act has a good sound-
ing accordian that's also a good size to handle.

Even when you miss a note...it's never sour or nerve jangling,
and I think that's what my grand kids love about the accordian.
(Me too! wink)

It looked good on paper.
Upon arrival the First Act accordion would not play any of the note keys. The two chord keys played, but that's all. Now I have to go through the hassel of return shipment and crediting. There are just some items that must be physically examined before purchase. ... Read more

GREAT
Drumsticks are awesome. (...) great to use. Durability is good. Education comes out of this because when your playing Metallica thats educational. I recommend you buy these drumsticks.

Like hitting your drums with an actual stick
What can I say about Mark II except that they are the lowest quality I have ever seen? I own a set of Mark II drums that I bought brand new for about $250, a five-piece (the box said ten piece, because it counted every cymbal, the stand, and the pair of sticks as pieces) metallic red set with the worst crash and hi hat I'd ever heard.

At the time I had never been in contact with a good drum set, just the bad set our church used (also Mark II), so I didn't know that I had such a bad product, I just knew I was getting a full drum set for less than three hundred bucks.

The worst thing about the set, however, is the sticks. The Mark II sticks the set came with were nothing short of horrible. Instead of the nice pressed hickory sticks I use now, these things were made of some kind of very soft wood. The result? The already crappy Mark II crash cymbal made almost no sound at all when it was hit, and the wood itself began to break down and leave big white marks on the drum heads.

Word of advice to drummers: If you want nice, affordable drum accessories and sets, go to ebay. Just don't buy Mark II. ... Read more
