What better way to introduce a child to the love of music and to novel sounds and textures than by giving him or her a child piano toy. The name denotes that such an item is, indeed, a toy, but it can be much more than a mere plaything. There is a myriad of different styles, sizes, colors, and brands of toy pianos on the market and deciding which one to choose depends on the age and interest of the child involved.
Commonly available piano toys range from simple keyboards that can be kicked or played to intricate and complete pianos that have the same parts and functions as their larger counterparts, and everything in-between.
An ideal child piano toy for an infant is one that has large, noticeable keys that are smooth to the touch and may or may not be colored. These pianos are often made of plastic or vinyl and usually have only a few keys that are designed to introduce the child to the action of pushing keys and the subsequent sound that action creates. They may be their own individual piece or be part of a larger play area, or may even be hung in a crib for the child to kick with his or her feet. There are some more sophisticated pianos that are made specifically for infants, however, such as those made by Schoenhut.
There are toy pianos that are more suited for children of toddler age who show a sincere interest in playing and making music. An ideal child piano toy for a child of this age is one that has a greater number of keys and the keys themselves approach or are the size of the full-sized keys found on standard, adult-sized pianos. These pianos may be quite small or may stand on legs and come with a matching bench. Some pianos for this age range may be in the form of a mat that kids can play with their hands or with their feet. The keys may be the standard black and white, may be colored, or may come with a color-coded finger bar that can guide children across the keyboard. They may be made of plastic, vinyl, or wood.
Older children will likely appreciate a toy piano of larger size and functional scale. An ideal childs piano for older children will be elevated on legs, have a matching bench, and have keys that are the same full-size as those found on standard pianos. The size of the keyboard will be larger, as well, and music will be created when steel wires or rods are hit with a hammer. Essentially, a child toy piano such as these will look and act precisely like its larger counterparts with the exception being its customized childlike size.
It would be impossible to list every piano brand, size, and design in a brief article such as this but suffice it to say that your choices of child piano toy are vast. If you want to introduce your child to the piano, start with a simple one and work up from there. If your child brings up the idea of learning to play piano, make choosing the right one a joint effort between your youngster and you. Learning to play the piano is a wonderful way to introduce children to the wonder of music and to teach them discipline and adroitness.
