Merry Melodies

Children respond so readily to music that it's easy to see why toy musical instruments remain perennially popular. But these days, Hong Kong toymakers are incorporating hi-tech electronics to make their musical instruments sound sweet.

 

Budding Talent

Chi Da Toys Enterprises (HK) Co Ltd's battery-powered Doggy Keyboard lets children aged three years and up experience the joys of banging on keys and composing their own music. The company's Sounds & Music models, for babies six months and older, come in a variety of models - Cute Star, Sweet Moon, Cheerful Sun and Happy Cloud.

Keep On Dancing

Sun Lin Toys Mfg Co Ltd's Electronic Keyboard Playmat has a built-in amplifier for portable CD/MP3 plug-in and, with the accompanying microphone,
doubles as a karaoke unit. The company's touch-sensitive Dance Mixer Playmat works with all MP3 players and portable CD players.

Jam Session

Four musical notes and buttons on My First Guitar from Yick Shun Electronic Toys Mfy Ltd activate one of four songs, while My Learning Drum allows babies to beat on the drum and listen to different drum sounds while they learn about numbers, colours, shapes and melodies.

Down On The Farm

Fun Kids Industrial Ltd's Farmland Musical Band, which features five realistic animal sounds and sing-a-long, five different musical instruments and a recording function, lets children play back their musical efforts.

Feeling Groovy

Children can express themselves to their hearts' content with Neloco Electronics Co Ltd's Light-up Bongo Drum, which can be programmed to include up to 16 rhythms for its record and play function. The company's Deluxe Mini-Drum features six percussion drum sounds and six different drum rhythms, while the Grand Guitar has the look and feel of a real rock star's model.

Electric Tunes

The Electronic Keyboard, Megamix Light Up Guitar and Electronic DJ Mixer System from Choy Hing Toys Industrial Co Ltd lets children experience the thrill of playing instruments just like the ones that grown-ups use. These are great fun for children three years old and up who can experiment with different rhythms, sound effects and musical instruments.
