GREAT!!Nov 09, 2009
By Nicole Mears
If I would have made a review about this product when my son was 4months old I would have only gave it a 2 because he would kick but wouldn't seem all that interested. But now that we finally made a move we have started to unpack things and once I found this I gave it to him one morning. Right away he went scooting to it and hitting it. Before I knew it he was SITTING on it. He now LOVES this thing and it will entertain him for quite a bit - which is nice because it has replaced him going for our laptop 100% of the time hah

Very quiet and not safe for the older babies crib.Aug 20, 2010
By Micheal Mathews
When I pulled this out and turned it on the first thing I thought was, "Wow, it's really quiet."
Regardless my daughter started banging happily on it and really liked the lights. As a matter of fact she went pretty nuts on this thing, loved it at first.
And though we could barely hear it she seemed pretty happy so we tied it into the crib.
Here's the problem. At 7 months my daughter has recently learned to pull herself up and is trying desperately to get out of her crib. She found out pretty quickly that she could wedge the piano on the mattress and use it as a stepping stool. Now the key board bends under her weight but it does give her a bit of a boost. Much as I'd love to leave it in because she likes it, anything that can be climbed on needs to be taken out of the crib so out it went. We left it on the floor for her to play with and after a few days she got bored with it.
My guess is that it's too quiet, even on the loudest settings. I did try replacing the batteries and nothing.
Not sure if i got a bad model but with out the feedback it's just not that interesting to her.
I'm giving it 3 stars since she really did seem to like it and other reviews don't seem to have my issue.
If your baby can pull themselves up to standing, I wouldn't recommend this for the crib, could lead to some bumps and bruises.

Not Very LoudJan 30, 2010
This toy is very quite. When our daughter kicks it, she can't here it, and doesn't make a connection to moving her feet to making music. It is a good concept, but fisher-price didn't get it right.

Great!Nov 30, 2010
By K. York
We've had this since our son was 3 months old. At first, he would use this as a kick toy in his pack and play when he couldn't sit up. Then we used it as a tummy time toy, which is when he really got interested in it.
He's 6 months old now and this has to be his favorite toy of the moment. He sits up and smashes the keys, and the sun and bird blinking lights keep him in awe. I love that you can alternate between the two different settings (continuous music, or free style).
On the free style setting you can push whatever keys you want and keep pushing them, or after a few seconds pause between a push it will play a little ditty and then make an animal sound. One amusing thing is you can play songs on it for your baby. For example Ode to Joy, but you have to be really fast or it will play the ditty instead.
On the continuous setting it will play longer songs. Be warned the music will change mid-song if a key is pushed, which may drive you nuts when they're pushing the keys constantly(think of it sounding like someone flipping through radio stations). It's a great way to learn cause and effect though, so it doesn't bother me.
It's lightweight enough that he drags it along everywhere with him now and our little maestro loves playing with it from different positions. I've seen him sitting up to play it, as well as on his belly so it's great for all stages. I've also seen him sit on it to play it, LOL. It's extremely durable, and it's easy to wipe clean with a cloth.
The only thing I am not fond of is the ties for crib use dangle loose. I wish there was a slip cover or something where you could remove them when you're done using it for a crib. It has four ties on the back to tie around crib slats. They're short ties, and I've tied them into small bows to keep our little nibbler from nibbling for now. The piano may not tie to all cribs.
Bottom line is I highly recommend it, it's a great toy. If your baby doesn't like it at first when they're a kicker, try it for tummy time and sitting up.

WOW !Jan 14, 2010
By G- mom
I purchased 2 of them for my twin grandsons. What a joyful investment. Right now they are only 3 mos and they are alert to the lights flashing and the music playing. What a great toy!
