With reality TV shows like American Idol now all the rage, kids can get their musical education started early with the sophisticated musical toy range available from Hong Kong manufacturers. Today's keyboards and guitars can even help teach young ones how to play - move over Britney!
Children aged three and up can create a big bang with this Big Beat drum set from Golden Rich Industrial Ltd. Just like the real thing, the kit consists of a large bass drum and foot pedal, one medium drum, one small drum, cymbal and drumsticks. There is even a stool, but it is only suitable for those weighing less than 70 pounds.
This dancing partner piano features cute little animals that dance along a magnetised track while the baby grand plays a tune. There are eight songs to choose from, so that children will think they can actually play when they hit a key. Toy maker Funny Toys Mfy Ltd has also added a karaoke function so kids can sing along too.
Play And Sing...
Smart Crown Development Ltd has given this 32-key super piano with microphone an amazing array of functions that will delight any child of three years and up. For starters, there are four animal sounds, seven rhythms, 12 demo tunes and 16 tones imitating different instruments. And for parents there is an automatic switch-off to save battery life.
Electronic musical toys are the speciality of Eternal Gain Enterprises Ltd and kids will have fun making music with toys like this simple-to-use lion piano and electronic jungle bongo set. The bongos come with five different rhythms so kids can cha-cha, samba, disco, rap or techno their nights away.
These push button instruments from Sheen Harvest Ltd take all the hard work out of guitar playing. Offered in jazz or disco versions, these instruments play a string of greatest hits, have keys that flash lights and can even record and playback. The jazz version also offers a melodies guide and quiz function.
Sound Of Music...
Any toddler playgroup can turn into a nursery pop band with these musical instruments by Chi Da Toys Enterprises (HK) Co Ltd. Push their controls and these instruments - such as a keyboard, guitar and saxophone - will light up while playing popular tunes that toddlers will recognise.
Kids can learn basic piano technique with these sophisticated teaching keyboards from Hello Modern Toys Electronic Mfy Ltd. They are programmed with piano lessons, songs, sound effects and light-up keys. There are even record and playback functions. They are sold under the Hello Modern brand to markets in the US, Asia and Europe.
