Pros & Cons
Melissa & Doug Learn To-Play Piano is made from high quality materials to ensure durability and safety. Its solid wood construction makes it sturdy enough for hours of play. This brightly painted colorful upright piano features 25 keys and 2 full octaves giving the little musicians an opportunity to explore the concept of high and low notes, loud and soft. The piano comes with an illustrated songbook so your child can learn to play up to nine favorite nursery songs. The color-coded key chart makes it easy for your child to identify notes on the piano and take the first steps toward playing tunes.
However, some reviewers report that the notes played sound very tinny or metallic like. The keys get stuck while playing and they fall off very easily. Some have even complained that the screws tend to loosen up on regular basis. This problem was becoming a question for the Learn-to-Play claim by Melissa & Doug.
Overall, the Melissa & Doug Learn-To-Play Piano is pretty durable, sturdy, stylish and adorable instrument. It sounds pleasant and the price is suitable for the output it produces. It is a fairly preferred musical instrument to let children develop their musical side.
