Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Budding musicians and music lovers can make their own beautiful music or sing along with favorite songs when they play with the B. Meowsic Keyboard. This keyboard entertains kids ages two and up and encourages interactive play with lots of buttons to press and plenty of musical choices for singing, playing, and recording. The Meowsic Keyboard comes with a book of lyrics and a small book of favorite kid quotes posted on the B Quote Gallery.
Songs, Beats, Sounds, and More
The B. Meowsic Keyboard provides lots of opportunities for experimenting with music and sounds. Five instrumental sounds (piano, organ, banjo, bells, and a button that plays every note in the key of "meow"), a 20-song playlist, a retractable microphone, and built-in recorder invite your child to discover the joy of musical play. The keyboard also offers five different beat options including rock, blues, samba, techno, and disco for extra fun.
Kid-Friendly Design for Musical Discovery
Meowsic has clearly been designed with little ones in mind. A simple on/off switch gets things going and an auto shutoff function signaled by a soft "purr" sound helps saves battery power. Kids can speed things up or slow them down with the two medium-size tempo buttons. Volume is easy to control via two buttons right next to the tempo buttons. Another easy-to-find button on the side of the beat paw instantly retracts the microphone.
Records Your Child's Original Music
Our testers really liked the record button, which lets young Mozarts record whatever they play on the keyboard. A play button right next to the record button stops the recording and instantly plays back your child's original tune. One thing our testers discovered, however, is that the record button will not record anything spoken or sung into the microphone, nor will it record any of the beat lines. It's purely for the keyboard.
Lots of Sing-Along Fun
A cat button on top plays seven kitty renditions of popular songs (like "How Much is that Kitty in the Window?" and a feline version of "The 12 Days of Christmas") that invite singing along with the microphone.
For even more sing-along fun, press the treble clef button to play 20 pre-recorded tunes like "Bingo," "Beautiful Dreamer," "Hokey Pokey," and "Yankee Doodle." A handy lyric book comes with the keyboard and provides a great opportunity to help build early language skills by teaching young children the words.
What's in the Box
Keyboard with four AA batteries installed, function sheet, book of lyrics, and book of quotes.

Update 8/29/2011...nearly a year later, and my kids both still play with this almost every day. I admit, the songs with the girl singing are obnoxious to me (the kids don't mind), so I try to direct them to using the songs-with-music-only button. They love to sing and talk into the microphone a lot too. It has been dropped, thrown, stepped on, thrown down stairs and jumped on, and it still works great, with only a few battery changes needed so far too.
The toy seems extremely durable; she's already slid it down the basement stairs and it's fine. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish it recorded voice input into the microphone; it only records/plays back keyboard input. My daughter doesn't watch TV yet, and this keyboard is the closest thing she has yet to an "electronic babysitter" - she loves it so much that she plays independently with it, and it occupies her attention more than any of her other toys, leaving me more free to accomplish tasks. This is a good thing.
Speaking of the keyboard - I'm a classically trained pianist, and I am actually impressed by this keyboard. All the keys, including the black keys, work.Read more ›
It's durable, doesn't burn through batteries, and pretty basic. He has a lot of fun with it, which is great.
A downside is that the "record" option merely records the signal of the notes you press, not the actual tempo you are hitting them, nor any vocals you do with the attached mic. Just a heads up so no one is disappointed.
The biggest drawback I can find is the kitty-centric songs it plays when you hit the cat button. My son found that and the slow tempo button simultaneously, so every morning I am now awakened to what sounds like Satan crying about his lost cat named Applebee. Over and over. And over.
On another note, the company that makes this piano has excellent customer service. Our cat piano just stopped working one day for no reason, so I emailed customer service and had a response the next day. They sent me a replacement piano at no additional cost. I'm sorry, but you just can't beat that!
I can't figure out if there is any real difference between this and the "Parents" Kitty Keyboard, other than color and price. This one is significantly cheaper - and in colors more like an actual cat. I recommend this one.
