I wonder what these are like to tune? Rick, does the toy piano get tuned? How does it work?
No, the Schoenhut toy piano doesn't get tuned, I don't think.
I haven't taken it apart to see how it works, but the notes sound like a bell; almost like a xylophone. If you've ever watched "Charlie Brown Christmas", it sounds like what Schroeder plays when he can't seem to satisfy Lucy with his piano playing, until he plays what sounds like a toy piano playing Jingle Bells.
But I still get a kick out of playing the toy piano. Maybe I'm already into my second childhood...
