Great toy piano
Great toy piano. My 22 month old loves playing on it. Its stylized look doesn't make it stand out as a toy quite so much. The sound: Not the best. But on the plus side you don't have to tune it. So if you have perfect pitch and out of tune sounds make your teeth itch, probably don't invest in this.
This product was easy to assemble. Just a little time consuming without a power drill. I would highly recommend this as a high end toy piano that will not look quite so childish in your living room.

Perfect for a 3 year old
By Jeanette M. Freed
After reading the reviews for this item, I was nervous to purchase it, but it was exactly what I had hoped it would be. It's an absolutely beautiful TOY and my daughter loves to play it. It looks just like a baby grand piano and it's just her size. It was easy to put together; my only complaint is that one of the keys all the way to the right is stuck and you have to push it harder than all the rest. Does it sound like a toy piano? Yes. Is your child going to magically sound like Schroeder from the Peanuts? No. Most of the complaints in the reviews were that it sounded like a toy, but I'm not sure what people expect from a toy. As a musician myself, I would obviously prefer a richer tone more in tune, but for a 3 year old toy, it's absolutely perfect for playing and sitting at. It will make her more comfortable should she choose to play a real one in the future. So as a toy, 2 enthusiastic thumbs up.

Good looks but not good sound
As they say: "Don't judge the book by it's cover" - or something like that. We made that mistake... This is a very nice looking product, however, I was not impressed by the sound of it. Anyone who plays or played piano will notice that the sound of this is nothing like a normal piano sounds. In fact, it is not even very pleasant... I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old and finished a special musical school in Russia where I had access to some wonderful instruments and was exposed to beautiful sound of the piano for all my life. As a musical person I could not stand the sound of this toy. I want my son to learn and appreciate the sound of the piano keys, the flow and the beauty of natural, clean music. When teaching children music it is important for them to develop "an ear for music" and this will just no do it. This sounds like a toy and nothing like a piano. Even the regular inexpensive keyboards will sound like a piano, but this one does not. We were disappointed and sent this one back. Unless you are looking for really just a good looking, elegant toy or a toy that is also a beautiful decoration piece for a room, then I do not recommend this. If you want your child to learn an instrument get an electronic keyboard (for same price) or a real piano. I will say that this toy is very elegant and nicely made (just need to work on the keys...).
