This toy is just ok. It seems rather cheaply made. It is slippery when my son is trying to play on it. Have to be careful that he doesn't fall and get hurt. But it plays music when stepped on so it does fulfill it's purpose. Just make sure you put it in the middle of the room, and away from furniture to avoid injuries.
My 3 year old's great aunt and uncle gave the music mat to her for Christmas. Within the first 30 minutes, the on/off button got jammed. I tried to fix it, and the whole battery device fell off. The little bit that she has played with it, she has loved it. She was heartbroken when the on/off button broke. Needless to say, I exchanged it for a new one, which hopefully won't break.
Our two young cousins had a blast playing with this music mat. The batteries were easy to install and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. The adults even had a go at it. The music is familiar to the kids, so they loved that aspect of it, but also enjoyed playing with each individual key.
I was surprised that an adult could play on it
The item is great for the price.
