Great toy with one design flaw,
This review is from: Baby Einstein Count and Compose Piano (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Baby Product)
This is a fun little toy that my 6-month old son enjoys playing with. As another reviewer mentioned, one of the great things about this piano is how varied the melodies are. Not only does it play classical pieces but your child can compose his/her own music as well, which means mom and dad don't have to hear the same melody over and over and over... big plus!
The one down-side is that the speaker is on the bottom of the toy, which means that if your child doesn't hold the piano on his/her lap while playing with it the sounds is very muffled. My son still likes to play with it - muffled sounds and all - but I can't help marveling that the designers put the speaker in such an unfavorable location. Einstein would blush to know that such an obvious design flaw was incorporated into a product with his name on it!

I agree... my baby loves this toy, but he has figured out how to play it upside down so he can hear it better! Which kind of defeats the purpose of the other features... However, it is one of his favorite toys.

You are being very generous giving it 3 stars. I bought it for my baby and this is a huge flaw.
It big enough that an infant cant pick it and play it at the same time, yet when you put it on ground or anything else the voice is so muffed that it is hard to hear. If I were to know this I would have never bought it.
