This week we show off our final fun finds from Toy Fair 2017!
At Toy Fair 2017 all of the new Schoenhut toy pianos introduced were digital. They make spinets, uprights, mini-baby grand, and even a twin butterfly piano that looks like a baby grand. The new line is being branded as New Tech Learning. So no more 'tinny' piano sounds from a toy piano, they'll sound like real pianos. If the name is familiar, Schoenhut has been producing toy pianos since 1872. The new line includes 25, 30, 37 and even a 61-key digital model. The new line of digital pianos have USB inputs and headphone jacks. They also can record and playback so kids can hear how they sound. The new pianos range in price from about $100 to $500 or so. Every piano has a place to hold a smart phone or digital tablet to make it easy for the child to follow along as they learn. Schoenhut does not make its own app because a spokesman said they are lots of learning apps out therealready. Someone else at Toy Fair said they heard of a piano learning app lets your child follow a lesson and when they're finished, it emails the parents a score showing how well the kid did. That well I guess, if your child's practicing gets to be too much, you can leave the room and still know how they did. Someone else at the Schoenhut display said that the great thing about piano apps is that they teach kids to play piano by making them think they're playing a game!
