Mini Piano

Recent studies have shown that kids who play an instrument have an easier time concentrating in school, and achieve higher grades than their non-musical counterparts. You can help encourage music-making from an early age with this simple and inexpensive little keyboard. The fully-functional piano keys are battery-operated, allowing your child to explore her inner Mozart on the go. For under $10, it’s a much lighter investment than a baby grand. (Schylling, $10.28)
