Play it again Sam!

Could we have a musician in the ranks?  Henry (6.5 months) is showing a real interest in serenading our normal family life with his little red piano.
Readers of this blog will know that I am not a huge fan of compulsively buying any old tat for the children but there have been two or three key things that we have bought (for Freddy originally) that were not necessarily cheap but have really proved their worth.

Take this piano for example.  It's beautifully made and the sound that comes from it is not horrifically torturous but actually quite pleasant no matter how hard the keys are thumped.  It was one of the first things that Freddy used to pull himself up to standing with.  We used to place it against the sofa so it couldn't tip backwards and then he would pull himself up.  The resulting 'music' of his adventures would spur him on to do it over and over again. 

Eventually he used to pull himself up on the piano and then cruise over to the sofa to continue his explorations.

Henry however, seems to just like the music rather than the standing but he does sway at the same time which is really funny to see; he even sings sometimes in a quiet wailing fashion.

I'm not sure that I need to say this but just in case you were wondering this is not a product review :)  I like this blog being ad free and product review free so any opinion I have is my own.  That said, I will be opening my own shop soon (fingers crossed!) so you can expect a discreet link to that I'm sure.
