Their first piano

Posted by D under family

The girls had a playdate today. Their friend had a really groovy “doctor” set. So K2 wanted to get one for the girls as well since they love playing “doctor” right now. H2 and S2 didn’t want to go to the toy store without Papa (smart kids) and so K2 picked me up and we went as a family.

We did find the “doctor” set. And I happened to see a wooden toy piano. I immediately fell in love – had to have it. K2 tried to appeal to my common sense (“I hope you will still like it when the girls are LOUD“) but it was too late. I was sold. So the girls got their Melissa & Doug Piano.

The girls love it. Love it. The highlight was when one of them would play the harmonica and the other was on the piano – taking turns. I didn’t manage to get a picture of that, though.

We’ll see for how long I will think that this was a good idea. Right now I’m happy as the girls are more than happy.

    We have one in just red. One of the best toys I have bought. It only get played with once in a while but when it is played with they LOVE it. And we do the tin whistle and the piano, and yes it is LOUD.

    How did you fare after a day with the piano (which is quite adorable – I can totally see why you love it)? We have a keyboard, electronic drums, ukelele, recorder/flute, and about 20 other misc. musical instruments. Now, R wants a full-on drum set. We’re holding out as long as we can on that one! I see more Excedrin Migraine in my future. Ha ha!
    Hope you guys will find some cool in all of the heat this week. Take care.

    I think I remember you commenting on one of your visits that you didn’t have as many “loud” toys as we do…I can see you’re working on that! ;)
