I am 25 and decided for 2016 I was going to fulfill my childhood goals and one of those was learn how to play some sort of pipe/wind instrument. I got the recorder mostly because it was in my price range. The color of the recorder was exactly how it appeared on the screen (was worried it might turn out a different shade of yelloe) but it was perfect :) It came with plastic holder, and plastic cleaning stick, and also a paper that shows which holes are which notes. I would recommend learning from youtube becuase it is more helpful than a piece of paper. It arrived a few days early so that was nice. I had looked at other reviews before buying and I think they could easily be fixed. One person was complaining that some of the notes sound the same but when I looked at the paper it actually showed that some notes have different variations of which holes to cover so maybe that was why? Also another person complained that it was a harsh screeching sound. I looked this up on youtube and apparently you shouldn't blow too hard. If you blow too hard it wont make the right notes. Anyways I gave a five because it was a speedy delivery, was exactly what I ordered, a good price, and it was in great condition.
