Most children love toy musical instruments, but most parents do not appreciate their musical ability at such as young age. The Electronic Toy Violin for Kids from Kydos promises an instrument that is always in tune so parents will not be annoyed. If you are thinking of buying this item for yourself or someone you know, read on to find out what other buyers thought after purchasing.
Is the Electronic Toy Violin for Kids Worth Buying?
Unfortunately, there really are not too many ‘pros’ to this toy. For small children, it requires absolutely no skill to play; all they have to do is push the button with their chin or touch the bow to the strings. However, as mentioned below, this is also one of the cons.
The violin is small, about 16 inches, so it is perfect for little kids, but also a con, as it would be too small for any child over 4 years old. If the child really is a fan of the violin, the cost of the toy is certainly justifiable, but you also might want to invest in rechargeable batteries.
As for drawbacks, there are quite a few. As mentioned above, the music is easy to start playing, but frequently cuts out, there is no on or off switch and no volume control. The strings are made of metal, but still said to be flimsy and the material that the violin is made of is also said to be cheaply made.
Almost all buyers complained about how fast the batteries were used up and since there is no on or off switch, the batteries have to be taken in and out to turn the violin on and off.
While this may go without saying, you might want to avoid this toy for your child. While it is cheap, buyers will be spending more in batteries in a short amount of time. There are other toy options available in the same price range, or even a real mini violin can be found around $40 dollars. Unless you have a toddler, have a high tolerance for monotonous noises and love changing batteries, the majority of the buyers who purchased this toy would not recommend it.
