4.0 out of 5 stars Minor flaws don't ruin a solid product, 18 Dec 2012
This review is from: LeapFrog Poppin' Play Piano (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The good points are many - it's extremely well made, durable, and it feels like a toy that could take a fair amount of damage - a fact that's very important for its target audience! As an educational tool it's a very solid piece of equipment - along with different musical instruments, there are modes to teach first colors, then numbers, something that increases the lifetime of the piece. As many have already noted here, it's very loud - a little too loud I think. There is a two-step volume switch, but to be honest even the lower volume switch is a little too loud for my taste - the higher setting is too much. A child will not complain, but for us adults it's going to be extraordinarily annoying! The only other negative is that the songs included for the 'songs' setting are not traditional songs e.g. Twinkle Twinkle, etc. I'm not sure what the reason for this is - surely all the 'standards' are comfortably in the public domain?

But in summary, we were really pleased with it. It's a very solid well-made product, and Leapfrog have given a lot of thought into coming up with a device that has a bit of longevity. First just the fact of hitting the keys and making a noise, then the ball that goes up and down on each key press, then musical instruments, then colors, then numbers. I would have no hesitation in buying this as a present for a friends child.... BUT I would apologize in advance for the noise :)
