This xylophone looks great. With 5 notes you would expect it to be tuned to some kind of pentatonic scale - but no!!! It is in fact tuned to a major 7th chord which means it is practically impossible to play any recognisable tune on it. In spite of the manufactures claim that it is "melodious" it makes a very unmusical "clunk" when played. I contacted the manufacturer and was told that it was really a toy to develop hand-eye coordination, not a musical instrument.
If you want music - dont buy this!!!!
