This toy is so much fun, my 15 month old grandson absolutely adores it! He loves exploring anything and will spend hours simply pushing, pulling, pressing and turning around, things that capture his attention.
The colours are vibrant. It is well constructed and durable. He spends time finding out where everything goes (and there is plenty to do that with!), what everything does and copies the sounds too. The sounds of the animals are especially good...although the fact that you can't turn it off is rather annoying ;0) The piano part is tuneful and not at all "tinny" like some are.
All-in-all I would recommend this toy for children of all ages, adults included!
P.S. The tags state wooden ark...it is plastic!
