Product Description

Product Description

Music and fun meet with the First Act Discovery Junior Accordion. This accordion is designed and sized especially for young players, and has a traditional European-style look and sound. With 7 keys, this diatonic accordion plays 14 notes. Right hand keys play melody, and left hand bass chord buttons are for accompaniment. The design features a left-hand support strap and right hand thumb support to make it easy to play, whether you’re standing up or sitting down. The bellows straps protect the accordion when not in use. Also known as a “squeezebox,” the accordion makes sound by compressing and expanding the bellows, causing air to flow over the reeds inside. The player presses various keys to produce different pitches. The air button is a silent bypass, allowing the air to flow through the instrument without making sound. Enjoy the authentic sound of the First Act Discovery Junior Accordion.

We bought this for our 6 year old son,who loves all music. When we got it home, he and his 2 year old brother couldn't wait to get it open. When we first bought it, I wasn't sure if they would really be able to play it. Boy, did I make a mistake!They both could play it with no experience required! Even the 2 year old could play it and made it sound great! It was very easy for them to learn, Just pick it up, pull it apart and push it back together. Its that Simple! Our 2 boys love it, And love to play cajun music with it! My husband even likes to play with it! I'm so glad we made this purchase!

Buying a kids accordion is probably something your average parent wouldn't even consider; most folks don't like accordion music, and the idea of a kid squeezing and squeezing on one of these things is about as appealing as a hole in the head.

However, most people have misconstrued ideas about what this instrument would sound like. First of all, this is a diatonic accordion, meaning it's tuned to only one key. The buttons make different sounds depending on whether you're pushing or pulling on the bellows. Diatonic accordions are popular in Cajun and Zydeco, Irish Music, Tex-Mex and Conjunto, Gypsy Music, and various other forms of world music. They are not the accordions typically used in polka.

Because of the diatonic setup, your kid can't play a sour note! It's like giving them an 8-note wide section of a piano, with no black keys. Sure, if they try, they'll still be able to drive you nuts with this thing, but most likely, they'll enjoy trying to pick out songs. Unlike a string instrument or a flute instrument, if they really give it a try, they'll likely have success pretty quickly, because of the one-key structure.

Pick up a good CD to help inspire your kids on this instrument; I recommend Buckwheat Zydeco's "Choo Choo Boogaloo", it's kids' zydeco.... very fun!

We have now had it for over 2 years and between 4 kids and their many friends and cousins, it still lives! Whenever it is found it is played with. Yeah sure the keys get stuck occasionally, but if that happens you just wiggle the end a little bit and presto everything goes back. Worth the money!

My daughter recieved Christmas money and chose to purchase this toy accordion. What a wonderful surprise it has been! I would recommend this instrument to anyone who wants an accordion or a good beginner's instrument.

It has a pleasant sound and is simple to operate. Don't let its simplicity fool you, though. There is room for growth with this accordion. It has a range of two octaves and is capable of good musical expression.

I've given it four stars for durability. It's out-of-box quality is excellent. Time will tell if it garners a fifth star.

A word of warning. My wife and I have had much discussion about how to help our daughter "play" the accordion. Who would've guessed it would teach us something about ourselves?

I play a 120 bass Piano Accordion and I saw this toy accordion and it just stole my heart. It's a sturdy little diatonic accordion and it's beautifully tuned in chords so you can't play a wrong note. It's a load of fun, and when my friends say they can't play music--- I hand them this little axe and they have a blast! It's compact, beautiful, and a load of fun for anyone of any age!

Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 9 year old son, who is very interested in learning different instruments. (And secretly, after a recent trip to visit my friend in Sweden and hearing her mother play the accordion, I was interested in giving it a try as well).

We are very happy with this! Here it is, 4 months past Christmas and this toy is still as popular as ever. And everyone in the family loves to play around with it, from our 18 year old daughter all the way to our 4 year old daughter. The sound is very good, even with it being a toy and it's complicated enough for the adults in the family to stay interested in learning. However, it's also easy enough for children to master a few tunes themselves without much effort, which keeps them working to get better and better.

Definitely a great buy for us!

I was sceptical when I saw there was an accordion out at a very affordable price that promised to sound great and was easy to learn. I had previously some rather bad experience with a kid's piano that I returned as it sounded like ...*you name it. However, this product really holds up. It looks good, is made for the little people, and the accompanying instructions are clearly understandable and very valuable even for grown-ups who might have forgotten about their knowledge of sheet music and scales.It is easy to learn if you put your energy to it, and it also tells you how not to destroy the instrument which happened to us before with a different type of instrument that was on the same price level, but only half as good.
Three thumbs up!

Think this is just for kids? Think again. I bought this after I played with a similar accordion and couldn't believe a $20 instrument could actually make music. There are a lot of companies selling these, but I'm pretty sure they're all the same. If you think accordion playing might be fun, it's definitely worth the minor investment. The quality of construction is much higher than one would expect for this price range. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning a diatonic accordion.
