Now, for the toy... After messing with it a couple of days, I'd have to say it is a bit more advanced for little kids. The years 8+ seems pretty reasonable, but mind you this toy is best for kids who know the set up a keyboard pretty well and has good dexterity when it comes to their fingers.
Okay, for sound and picture... The sound is pretty loud, but that likely makes it appeal to younger kids. It has a small volume control on the keyboard that can range from loud, semi-loud and mute. I like the mute, but with some activities on the device the sound is necessary.
The screen meanwhile could certainly be better. It could be a bit bigger, With how the "Coffin-shaped" area is, they could have enlarged it a bit more. The difference from the plastic and the screen could have been shorter too, because when text pops up the angle of the light can make the text rather blurry from the drop of the shadow. The text could have been defined a bit better as well - at least for certain games. A "Music" game scrolls letters across the screen pretty quickly so it is hard to tell between the Y's and the V's as well as the D's and the O's. I'm an adult I keep failing because of that and a second problem: The keyboard.
The buttons are so tiny that even when you use a pencil (eraser side) you can accidentally hit two buttons at once. This makes the games that require using the text keys frustrating for kids to adults alike. "Texting" with these are okay since you aren't in a hurry, but beware to "fail classes" when you have to use them for a game.
Now then, this toy overall can be pretty amusing, has tons of little games and would do well for a boredom reliever. You just have to make sure you have good lighting and if you are a little kid that you have a parent around to help you on the more difficult games - those mainly deal with the keyboard.
While most wouldn't consider the toy to be educational, you do learn timing, dexterity and work on memory. Timing is usually learned in games where you have to catch or throw things - the key is learning when and where you should throw or catch something. Dexterity is a main requirement for a music game that deals with "Beats". Memory games come in the form of "doll making" and science projects.
So yes, the toy is pretty educational on a certain level, but mainly on young development rather than scholastic.
Durability... well, I cannot really go into that since I've only had it so long. Young children would be good to learn how to be careful with this toy and take care of it. Most will likely find it okay. It doesn't tend to stick, the sliding keyboard works smoothly and the buttons do their job despite some are too small.
Overall, it is a cute, interactive toy. It can be taken to places easily, has a mute button for quiet time, plenty of games to relieve boredom and rather creative. It has its faults, but I'm happy enough with the purchase.
