MiniPiano for Kiddie Music Fun

By on May 17, 2013

 

Exposing kids to different toys and activities helps a lot in rearing well-rounded kids. Parents usually buy classic toys like dolls, action figures, cars, blocks, and puzzles for their little ones. Role play toys like cooking sets, doctor’s kit, handyman tools, or musical instruments are normally bought depending on the child’s interest. Now that techie gadgets have entered the playing field, parents are given more tools to keep their kids entertained and trained while at play. Those who have little ones that show interest in playing the piano can download the MiniPiano App and let their kids fiddle around with music anytime and anywhere.

The MiniPiano App by Junpei Wada works just like a real piano toy. The black and white keyboards are displayed on the screen and the notes are played by pressing or tapping on the keys. Kids who would like to try out their musical skills can play around with a total of 14 playable notes that are available in the app. Adults may also find MiniPiano as an entertaining app simply because of the realistic looking keyboard and sounds in the app. The one octave limitation in the notes that can be played can be a turn-off for those who would like to play more than just the basic tunes with their mobile piano. Kids on the other hand will enjoy playing their do re mi’s and nursery rhymes with this app on their fingertips.

This app may be a long way from being a great virtual piano, but it does the trick for educating little kids on basic musical notes and simple piano pieces. It is also good enough to tap their interest in playing music and keep them engrossed during long waits or road trips. Best of all, it’s free! Parents who would like to expose their kids to a variety of apps to play with, can consider having the MiniPiano around as one of the musical apps in their mobiles.

Adorable 4-year-old, Kai Langer guested on Ellen the second time and goes steady with her. Kai visited Ellen the first time and sang Bruno Mars When I was your man much to the delight of the host, this time though she was more than surprised. Ellen received a bracelet with Kai’s name on it because he said, he wants Ellen to always remember him. He also wore an identical bracelet with Ellen’s name on it. Ellen jokingly said “this is gonna make news,” lol, just adorable.

Kai went on to tell his experience seeing Bruno Mars and singing for him too at the airport then sang When I was your man taking Ellen’s hand in between the song. (haha, this kid is too cute!)
