Korg tinyPIANO designed for children

Korg tinyPIANO

When we wrote our guide to buying a child’s first electronic keyboard we hadn’t seen this gorgeous new toy piano from Korg.

The aptly named tinyPIANO is a small yet perfectly formed digital piano designed to be played by babies, toddlers and young children.

Korg says that “first impressions stay with us. If it’s an instrument, the sound of that instrument continues to reverberate in our hearts and minds even when we become adults.”

They have deliberately designed the tinyPIANO to be accurately pitched and with a range of high-quality sounds. Features include:

  • Accurate pitch and true tone
  • Fashionable and cute, with a serious sound engine
  • Twenty-five built-in sounds provides tremendous versatility over traditional, mechanical toy pianos – plus it will always be in tune
  • Fifty built-in demo songs to enjoy even when you’re not playing
  • Small, easily transportable and powered by AA batteries or power adapter
  • Choose from four colors: black, red, white, and pink
