Summary: Very dissapointed with my purchase. 1. Even if you turn the volume to its lowest setting the keyboard sound is too loud. Worse, its default setting is 5 (scale from 1 to 10) which is way too loud. Each time your child turns the unit on and starts playing without thinking to turn down the volume first you have to hold your ears. Especially if you smaller children you know they are not going to turn down the volume by themselves. 2.
Summary: I bought this for my 1 year old for his birthday. He prefers things that are gray or black to the rainbow colors of baby toys. He immediately started playing it like a piano with his fingers instead of banging on it like I thought he might do in the beginning. Now he has to compete with my husband to use it. My husband loves it to. It has a huge variety of tones.
Summary: This is a perfect little keyboard for the sole purpose of learning my individual part in church choir songs and hymns. The volume "problem" a few people have mentioned is simply dealt with by tapping the volume button twice after switching the keyboard on--which quickly lowers the volume setting from 5 to 3--perfect for my dining room where I usually use the keyboard.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this keyboard, which I bought via Amazon for my child, who is between the noisemaking stage and beginning musician stage. The functions are very easy to use -- yes, easy enough for a young child -- and it's also educational. My child has been learning double-digit numbers next to the tone, pattern, and song titles, and he can enter the numbers using the number buttons and hitting start to hear whatever pattern or song.
Summary: We bought this keyboard a few years ago for our oldest son, now 6, and it has gotten daily use ever since, not just by the kids but Dad as well. I play a few songs each night after reading books to our youngest. Most of the time he falls asleep while I'm playing. I've been amazed by the capabilities of this little unit. Sure, it isn't a concert piano, but it is $43.75!!!
Summary: Bought this casio keyboard for a pair of little hands and she loved it. She liked her other gifts but paid them little mind. When she opened this one and saw what was in it her eyes lit up, and she shouted "PIANO." Over all I loved this product, and was happy I spent my money on it.
