If your kid starts showing some musical promise while banging away on a toy piano, it might be time to upgrade them to something better suited to sharpen their skills. But before you go all out on a baby grand, consider this electronic ‘baby’ baby grand that actually teaches them to play.
A set of 37 keys is slightly more manageable for pint-sized Liberaces to master, while a 3-inch LCD display shows an animated representation of how their hands should be tickling the faux ivories. The $US100 piano includes 12 lesson songs to get your kid up to speed, and 30 additional pieces perfect for parents who love the sound of off-key public domain music. The only catch is that it doesn’t come with that tiny stool, or the snazzy miniature tuxedo, which, quite frankly, is almost a dealbreaker. [Hammacher Schlemmer]
