I really love this little musical instrument. I didn't realize that you could get so much out of something so small and cute. I bought this for my grandchildren to play with, to help encourage them musically. There are 10 keys made of iron ores and the base is a beautiful, stained Mahagony body. The keys are purposely bent in this way so that it can be played with fingers. It comes with a cute, velvety bad and a little music book to help you get started playing songs right away. I really think this is a cool little musical instrument.
