Product Description

Product Description

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD Not for children under 3 years. Plan Toys well-designed Banjo will fascinate and help children learn the different sounds they can make while strumming the different cords. With the unique appearance and function of banjo, children can use their fingers to play and create sound which is a good way to practice fine motor skill which also influences hand-eye coordination and listening ability. Children are amazed by the sound created while using their fingers to play the banjo, this is a good way to let them experiment where the sound comes from and also help develop their concentration and problem solving skills.

From the Manufacturer

Plan Toy Banjo is a four string tune-able beginner's banjo. It is constructed from sturdy hardwood, latex and nylon strings. This is made to stand up to a preschooler's play. Children can learn to strum and finger the strings to produce different notes. The Banjo is a fun introduction to the world of stringed instruments.

Customer Reviews

You can't even tighten the strings, they stay as they come.

I've always liked Plan Toys but have to say I'm somewhat disappointed in this one.

This banjo is very cute, but it really doesn't make any music.

I ordered this for my son's birthday. He LOVES all stringed instruments and his grandpa plays a banjo. I really like the practices of Plan Toys and thought this was a really adorable, durable looking instrument. When it finally arrived (the shipping was delayed) I was suprised at how small the box was, expecting it to be bigger (its actually pretty tiny). I took it out of the box and it just looked dirty. The glue used to attach the membrane has seeped through leaving a nasty dark stain on what was supposed to be a bright pretty red face. But the biggest disappointment of all was that I had bought it almost exclusively on the merits of the "four tune-able strings". Now, maybe I'm crazy, but i just assumed that this meant that the banjo could be tuned to play actual notes... or a least something that sounds like a note... but all this does is thud. And a dinky little thud at that. No tuning. Nothing. Not quite sure what they meant. You can't even tighten the strings, they stay as they come. I was really sad. I returned it.

This banjo is very cute, but it really doesn't make any music. The strings make a dull thump noise, but that's about it. My 1 and 2 year olds don't play with it at all. I was disappointed because we love our other Plan Toys.

This toy has single handedly made me skeptical of Plan Toy's products. It is not a musical instrument. It makes no music. As other reviewers say, it just thuds. Quietly. My son loves music and playing with a real banjo. This doesn't offer him anything.

This is not a functional toy at all. I should have returned it as it was not worth the money at all.

My son has CP. and he loves watch his Daddy play his banjo, at times he'll let Patrick strum the strings and in doing so Patrick get excided as well as having to use fine motor skills which is so hard from him.

Patrick also has a hard time holding on to things but the little banjo is built in such a way that he's able to hold it.

Now when his daddy is playing his banjo Patrick is making noise right along with him with his little banjo.

That little toy banjo brings him as well as us such joy.

I love the material and durability. The music that it makes sounds terrible. I wish I could adjust the strings. Maybe that would help, but they do not adjust. My daughter was bored very quickly because we could not make real music with it.

This "banjo" doesn't make any music! My son loves music and has lots of "play" instruments. The strings on this banjo hardly make any noise at all. He hasn't picked it up since he got it on Christmas morning.... a big disappointment.

This is a commercial grade banjo, let me tell you. My son pulls the strings into one slot constantly and they are still very taut. It doesn't really make any good music at all as there is no hole, but it shows him good form in holding it and he plucks along like a dying chicken. We have had this toy for almost a year and it has taken some serious abuse. if it sounded better I would have given it five stars.
