The Schoenhut Tabletop Pianos - Schoenhut Piano Pals - 25 Key are for toddlers, ages three & up, to play while sitting on the floor. As the child grows older, with the simple adjustment of adding the included legs, the piano becomes taller and the child can sit on the included piano bench and easily play. Young children respond to the charming designs, which include a green-colored version with a cat, a red-colored one with a dog, a delightful pink-colored piano with a horse, a blue-colored one with a panda bear and a purple-colored teddy bear. To young children, playing this piano is more of a game than a chore. They easily become attached to this type of piano, as they do for a favorite toy.
Even though the attraction of a toy is there with the charming animal designs and bright colors, this is also a precision instrument. The spacing between the keys on these toy pianos is exactly the same as found on an adult-sized piano. As the child grows up to become able to play an adult-sized piano, the feeling of playing will be the same. Schoenhut has a patented Learning System, which is included. It makes use of a color-coded strip paced behind the keys to help the child quickly and easily learn to play their most beloved tunes. A songbook is also included that has many of the songs children like.
