Thanks to Mirum for sponsoring this post.
In my experience, anything that can captivate a toddler’s interest long enough to make her sit still is going to be her parent’s new favorite thing. The Fisher-Price Lion Piano offers just that. It is sweet musical fun that appeals to a preschooler’s natural inclination to PRESS ALL THE BUTTONS. The lion’s nose, when pushed, provides a satisfying — and adorable — roar sound.
There are enough features that a child will grow into using the piano more as they get older. My big kids had fun exploring the many built-in rhythms and record functions. And most importantly to parents, the volume goes up and down!
My little buddy Rhyli, pictured in this post, was happy just to discover the basic keyboard cause-and-effect correlation. She watched me press a key, heard the music, and then she pressed a key. Then her mom tried it, and she imitated Mom. We could have played like that for an hour if I didn’t have anywhere to be.
It has 32 keys and features four drum and animal sounds. Change the tone between the keyboard and eight other instruments. The Fisher-Price piano also plays 20 songs and has a button for demo select/demo all. The tempo up/down function increases the speed of the playback.
Like Barbie, Hot Wheels, Thomas the Train, and so many of the brands I grew up with, the Fisher-Price Lion Piano is found at Walmart.
Thanks to the Mirum partnership for enabling us to take a closer look at this piano and give it to one of our readers. It was a pleasure!
