Every musical genius started somewhere. Elton John’s first piano was a Christmas gift from his Grandmother at the age of 4. Freddie Mercury began taking piano lessons when he was 7. Mozart would watch his sister’s music classes and began to teach himself how to play when he was only 3 years old. Eli Goller (my adorable nephew) first touched piano keys at the tender age of 5 months old! Of course there is a slight chance that he may not turn out to be the next great maestro of our generation, but this little guy definitely loves to tickle the ivories!
The Deluxe Kick & Play Piano Gym from Fisher-Price is the perfect way to introduce your little one to music! You can start them early and continue to use this toy as they grow as there are 4 different ways to play! Your baby can be on their back, on their tummy, sitting, or you can even detach the keyboard and let them carry it around once they start walking! There are a ton of different settings to choose from, allowing you to customize the level of interaction required from your child! When Eli bumps a key with his feet, continuous music starts, keeping him happy and grooving! When it’s Elizabeth’s turn to play, we are able to flip a switch and allow her to play with actual piano notes! She absolutely loves pressing each key and hearing a different sound every time!
The bright colours and lights on the Deluxe Kick & Play Piano Gym from Fisher-Price really capture the attention of children! Eli will happily stare at and reach for the eye catching toys hanging on the bar above him, and Elizabeth darts across the room to get to her piano every chance she gets! The songs that you hear are all so adorable and help with early learning! They introduce things like shapes, colours and numbers! The mat is washable, something that comes in handy after tons of tummy time with a drooly baby!
Now, ladies and gentlemen, pull up a chair and enjoy your child’s first ever piano recital. I’m sure there will be many, MANY more to come in the years ahead.
