We probably all have a little singer or mover in the family, so for that child that just loves to make up their own songs, be sure to check out the Hape Ukulele. It comes in either a bright blue or bright red, and is a hit with toddlers and preschoolers.
It has four tunable strings and is made of baltic birch and maple wood, and while Hape describe it as having a “large, robust sound”, I wouldn’t quite agree with that- it’s pretty gentle on the ears. It is very well crafted and lightweight, and still looks brand new even though it has been with us for almost six months and has had several accidental drops. My 3.5 year old daughter sings with it almost everyday, so it’s either a blessing or a curse depending on whether or not I’ve ingested enough caffeine.
You can watch the Hape promotion video of it being played here. The ukulele comes at a very reasonable price of $29.99 and is sure to be a hit with your little one!
