Both my girls absolutely love music. They probably got their love of it from me if I do say so myself. Kendall is a little dancer and Makenna loves to sing. What do they also love? My iPod. Mommy won’t let them play with her iPhone so hey, her new iPod Touch belongs to them, right? Well, they think so but I am such a stickler at making sure they are playing age appropriate apps and listening to the right music. I also want them to learn at the same time and that’s why I love the iTikes Piano from Little Tikes.
iTikes incorporates toddler and kids love for all things Apple with what parents love – learning!
The iTikes Piano inspires passion for music by combining hi-tech and classic play. An all new revolutionary interactive toy that works with or without your Apple product so kids can bring out their inner Mozart.
With a real working keyboard, kids can learn to play and record music by themselves. In Solo Mode they keyboard plays on its own, lighting up the melody so your child can follow along. In Freeplay Mode your child can record and play back over 30 different notes. In Stepper Mode the keyboard will wait for the child until the note is pressed and then continue at the speed that is perfect for your child.
Two ways for kids to learn music skills
- Stand alone keyboard with major and minor keys
- App based music games for kids to learn note names, musical staff and pitch training
Four different ways to play
- Free play – Allows kids to play the piano without background music
- Solo – Accompaniment plays as kids pretend to play; melody joins in
- Playback – Pick a song to hear it play with accompaniment
- Stepper – Music will play regardless of what keys are played on the keyboard
With built in songs and keys that light up your child is guided through the musical process to learn to play at his or her pace. When your child feels more comfortable the iTikes Piano lets them change the tempo of the songs so they can challenge themselves by going faster or back to slow.
Simply plug in your iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone and download the FREE app for enhanced learning fun. You can choose from a variety of games and activities. Games that teach pitch training, and note reading in new and fun ways so kids will be learning and not even know it.
I love that you can also use the piano WITHOUT an Apple product.
