Schoenhut's smallest piano is a perfect choice for introducing a very young child to the world of music. This little instrument is fun, educational, and extremely durable. For beginning musicians, it promotes eye-hand coordination and develops musical creativity. Lovely chime-like tones are created by small hammers striking metal rods, the sound that makes Schoenhut toy pianos unique. The keys are the standard width of a full-sized piano, making an easy transition to a larger model. The Mini-Grand is always a big hit as a baby shower gift.
