Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Childrens Wooden Musical Instrument - Xylophone - presented in wooden box and Song Sheet included (Toy)
I bought this item for my two year old daughter as the start of her musical instrument collection. I looked at several in this price range and found a lot to be a bit plasticy and cheap looking. I am a big fan of more traditional looking children's toys which may be another reason I was attracted to it.
There have been some mixed reviews so I was a little unsure but I was so pleased with my choice when it arrived. The wooden frame has a sweet and colourful design and matches several other percussion instruments available on Amazon allowing a nice set to be collected over time. It comes in a useful wooden storage box which is pretty basic but does the job. It seems well made and sturdy and despite being dropped several times by my mini zylophonist it is still unscathed. The keys are metal and painted in nice bright colours and my daughter enjoys naming them as she hits them so great for getting them interested in learning colours at an early age. I'm sure it would be equally attractive to children a little older too as it has a very sweet sound.
In summary I found this to be a nice quality item at a good price and my little girl adores it which is of course the most important thing.
