I ordered 2 of these for a couple of friends who never stop complaining. What better way to say "I just can't find it in myself to care" than to hand over the world's smallest violin? (I know it's not the smallest, but it's small enough to be funny). As far as quality goes, it's made well enough. I'm not sure what the price is now, but I think I paid something like 4 bucks each, so I wasn't expecting much. The music, however, is just the worst. But again, if you want to insult someone in a most hilarious manner, this is it. And if they get the joke, they can pass it along to the next person, so it becomes the gift that keeps on giving.
I am sure this is mostly my fault, but the description on this was not helpful what so ever. My 9 year started violin lessons this year. I was looking for a violin to give her for a Christmas Ornament. I knew this was a key chain but figured it would work. So I ordered it up. This is a cheap, PLASTIC violin. Very plastic. In the picture it looked like it was wood, it is not and in real life it looks very much like brown/orange plastic. I guess after looking at the REAL ornaments, I assumed this was wood, or at least looked like wood. I did't realize it was classified under "toys" either--until after I received it (my fault) So if you are looking for a PLASTIC musical keychain TOY then this is what you want. But I don't think it is worth the price after shipping, just my opinion.
