  • a good toy and musical instrument

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    You can play right out-of-the-box. Dual power supply (4xAA vs 6V DC). Compact and lightweight in folded state. Blue backlight of the LCD display lets you play in a weak ambient light. MIDI out (I didn't test it yet), headphone and speaker outputs available. About a hundred of beat (drum) patterns, wide choice of instrument tone, vibrato and sustain effects.

    Cons:

    No DC adapter included :( this saved you two bucks :)
    Volume level is too high by default and you have to set it some lower every time you turn the piano on.

    OtherThoughts:

    Probably this one is not the best way to teach children because the keys are soft (they are made from rubber) - I mean, a real piano with wooden keys would be better.
    That said, if you already can play piano, this one would bring you lot of joy. Using a PC or audio recorder you could create complex songs just with this single tool.

    Bottomline:

    It's a good toy for children and adults. Amateur musicians may like it too.
