My one complaint is that it's pretty significantly out of tune, but we haven't tried to open it up and adjust it yet, so that may be a solvable problem. And, while the adults in the room care, the 1-year-old doesn't mind the tuning a bit!
Sound quality - targeted at my GC's age group - was spot on. Out of the box, a couple of keys were misaligned but the setup instructions clearly covered that possibility with a quick fix. So no problem.
Overall build quality is excellent as expected considering the long history of the brand. That's why I bought it, the legacy of high quality product including both construction and sound, remain intact.
Instructions were complete although a picture of the solution to the key alignment mentioned earlier would cut down on set up time, but that's minor.
One issue - resulting in a 4 star rating instead of a 5..............I found one screw on the piano at the bottom left, not screwed in all the way. In attempting to finger tighten it, I found it was stripped and would not go in any further. Rather than "screw" with it, (uh, sorry for the poor pun), I left it alone. It doesn't appear to affect the strength of the of the piano or the union of the left side to the keyboard - I also didn't hear any vibration when playing it, so I just left it alone.
All that, I recommend this company and this piano. BTW, my granddaughter loves it! Maybe the next Nora Jones!!
The adult-size keys are great. The sound quality is fine (glockenspiel tones), and are actually pleasantly muted, so I'm not terribly concerned about bothering the neighbors in my building. The keys are quite clacky, though, and one or two of them stick unless struck hard. None of these things deter an 8-month-old, and since she doesn't mind, I don't either.
The piano itself is adorable, and looks great in the nursery. Since it's just a toy piano, it doesn't matter if she bangs on it or chews on it (unlike my real piano, on which I do not encourage teething or ill-treatment).
There's a color strip that you can put up with the keys to learn to play. While my child is way too young for it at this point, my non-musical spouse actually started picking out some basic tunes on the keyboard, which was a pleasant surprise.
I'm not sure how well this toy works for older children. I think it depends on the child. When I was 3, I was playing an adult piano just fine. I plan on introducing my child to a real piano too, just as soon as she learns some language and fine motor control (and perhaps finishes teething).
All in all, it's a great piano. Minus one star for the clacky sticking keys, but otherwise, it's delightful for me and fun for my child.
