    The baby was a little too young when we got this, but now at 1 year old, she loves it! I like the removable xylophone. It’s two toys in one! I highly recommend this toy! It’s very sturdy, safe, and well-made. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

    The instrument is well made and colorful; but you cannot play songs, or really teach music to a child with this toy because it is so out of tune. This was a massive oversight. All the other Hape toys I have are all 5 star.

    We really like this toy. It’s exactly as we expected it to be. Bright colors, well made and beautiful music. I almost didn’t buy it because almost all the bad reviews stated that its so out of tune that it sounds horrible. Now, I could have gone by them and not bought the toy. But i though its a novel idea having the balls drop n produce sound if not music. I m not about to teach my baby music with this, so lets just give it a go. I m very happy I bought this because it’s really wonderful toy. And it’s definitely not out of tune, at least ours isn’t. Only thing is, the balls ate difficult to push through the holes. A baby i think cant do it.

    Got this to hang up in my chicken barn to keep the girls entertained during the captivity of winter. Trying to keep them from pecking each other. This is very nice quality. The paint does not look like it will chip off and the wood is nice quality. The music sheet looks very durable although I won’t put pressure on the hens to play any particular songs.

    I had a bad product (half the notes wouldn’t resonate) but knowing that Melissa and Doug is a good company, I thought I’d give them a chance to respond. After all, they have a 1800 number on the back in bold. The person I talked to couldn’t have been nicer. After having me play the xylophone over the phone she agreed with me that not all the notes played right, and they went ahead and sent me another. Kudos to Melissa and Doug, and yes, I would buy this at again, in a heartbeat!

    Purchased this for my 9 month old son. He is in a phase of LOVING to hit and bang things and he took to this right away. He quickly understand th mallets and how to create sounds. Also really enjoys watching us play music on this. Some days I think my husband likes this even more than our little one!One note of warning, this is technically a toy for at least a 36 month old. My sense is that is because of the mallets. They are pretty narrow (could choke on or poke himself in the eye) and easily turned into a weapon when our little one gets really into banging them. We do not allow him to play with this without keeping a close eye on him.

    I typically really enjoy Skip Hop products, and I will preface by saying that perhaps this will be better enjoyed for older kids, but the age appropriateness at “6+mo” seems a bit off. The colors are bright and pleasant as with all Skip Hop products, so babies and kids are attracted at first glance. However, at 6mo, babies seemed to only be able to play with the beads, and some babies could not hold the toy in whole let alone at the two handles to play as an instrument. Even for coordinated 1yo, it takes some effort to pull on the accordion to play and seems best enjoyed with some assistance. The accordion does have a very whimsical sound, producing sounds when pulling, a different tone when pushing together. While it does seem durable for months and years of enjoyment, I suspect it is better enjoyed by older babies/toddlers.

    A cute little toy that truly entertains babies, however… it is difficult for ANYONE to use the stick to hit the keys as it is tethered to the bottom of the toy. There is not nearly enough length to comfortably reach all the keys, particularly for a baby, most likely for safety…I was able to detach the stick by pulling the knot in the string out of the hole in the stick, untie the knot and remove the stick. It still stores perfectly in the slot in the belly of the fox (underside of the toy) so it won’t get lost.SKIP HOP: lengthen the string a bit! It will make this cute little xylaphone a perfect toy!

    Kudos to the genius manager that decided to make the fundamental key short to fit the fox chassis rather than make it long enough to actually produce the correct pitch! It is more like a 1/4 tone above the fundamental and is driving these parents insane. I don’t recommend this toy if you want your child to have good relative pitch. If none of this matters to you then this is a really nicely made toy.
