Bright Starts Start Your Senses Play A Tune Piano Toy
Bright Starts Play A Tune Piano

Multiple sounds, colors and textures inspire children to produce different melodies. As children press the keys of the piano, it lights up for a fun surprise. An assortment of fun melodies and sound effects introduces children to the boundless world of music. Plus, the colorful bead chaser on the high contrast handle adds to the fun.

FantasticOct 28, 2010
By T. Stubblefield
This is a fantastic toy and a great price. My 5 month old twins love it. Great for teething, lights up, easy to press button, and plays 3 songs. Loud enough to hear, but not overly annoying. No off button, just plays when pressed.

Best Infant Developmental Toy So Far: 1-5 monthsMar 07, 2011
By kristine osborn
My five-month-old son started noticing this toy around 5 weeks. The high-contrast handle and lights and music caught and held his attention like nothing else at that age. Once he started swiping at things with his hands, he was able to move the ball spinner and seemed to enjoy seeing his effect on the toy, as well as watching and hearing the balls spin around. As he's grown more coordinated, he is using this toy even more, and can now deliberately move the beads, teethe on the handle, spin the balls, and push the buttons to make music and lights come on. This inexpensive toy looks so simple, but it has so many uses for your little one. I like the bright colors, and the five different tunes it plays with coordinating light-up keys are of nice sound quality. This is our favorite post-bottle-morning-laptime toy, and I recently bought a second one to take with us when we are out visiting. I looked at several other brands of similar toys and believe this one offers the most, developmentally.

Sensually Stimulating for BabiesNov 09, 2011
"We" have gone on a baby toy buying binge lately, and this Bright Starts toy is "our" latest purchase. Mrs. Spudman picked this up for about six dollars at WalMart, but the price here on Amazon fluctuates so just keep revisiting the page.
I think this is a nice, worthwhile toy with its five melodies, easy to push buttons, rattle with tiny, colorful balls, and two sliding rings on the handle. Of note is that the handle and rings are made of a softer plastic than the toy's body, with enough give to make teething or chewing safe.
There's now on or off button, and no volume control. For a toy in this price range with such pleasant sounding melodies, the lack of such controls is a non issue.
You may be shocked to learn that this Bright Stars toy was manufactured in China.
NOTE - The careful reader may have noticed that the Amazon listing states three tunes, and I wrote five. This isn't a mistake. Our toy plays five and it has the same bar code number as shown here.

Great infant toy!Sep 05, 2011
I bought this for my son at about 6 weeks, but who is now 3 months old and loves this toy. He loves the lights and the rattle sound makes him giggle. My only complaint is that the music is REALLY short, so you have to press it like every 10 seconds to keep him engaged. I got another musical toy that is better for longer distraction. If you're sitting and playing with your baby, this is a great one though, and it's easy to show him how to hit the piano keys to make the music play. Overall a great purchase for the price.
Well-made but boring musical toy.Apr 04, 2013
By Citizen #57283
Only in the very loosest sense is this a "piano toy". The three keys are all connected, making one big key, and the two "sharp/flat keys" aren't keys at all--they're they "light-up" part and are fixed in place.
The worthwhile part of this toy is the spinner on top, which is fun for the very young, but it's also easy to find similar spinners on better toys. The handle is a nice touch, but the size of the toy makes it hard for infants to hold. And when they're able to hold it and move around (young toddlers love carrying toys with them, just because they can), the toy itself has long since ceased to be interesting.
The other good thing about this toy is that it isn't too loud. I wish there were more positive things about this toy. It's a cute idea and ven the very young would love the cause and effect learning of being able to press separate keys to make different tones (or, at least, activate a different song for each key).
Bottom line: Skip it. There are better spinners (Bright Starts Grab and Spin Rattle, for instance) and better smallish musical toys (Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes, for instance) for young and old babies alike.
