Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

I don't know why Little Tikes makes a xylophone, calls it a xylophone but then doesn't make the effort to build it so that it will play a musical scale. It's ridiculous. Music is a second language and children will start our learning it wrong with this musical instrument that isn't one. Don't buy it.

    Being out of tune is apparently a recurring problem

    By james2418

    from Los Angeles, CA, United States

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

    I received this item as a present for my son and it is clearly out of tune, even as a toy. I own another out-of-production xylophone toy that is way more in tune and I'm sure there are other xylophone toys out there that are better. I did contact Little Tikes, which basically told me that it is not a musical instrument and they have no solution. I have noticed similar reviews complaining about this toy being out of tune.

    I received a little tikes xylophone for my sons second birthday and it did not have the wand with it so he was not able to use it.

    Out of Tune

    By AcmePete

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

    If you want something in tune, go with another brand. This one is not even close, hard to even fathom do-re-mi when playing it...

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

    I bought this for my one year old and she hated playing with it until I disconnected the cord from the mallet. It sounds nice and overall, we love it!

        Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

        For those that are complaining that it's "out of tune"...really? Does that matter to a small child? My granddaughter is just 18 months and of course can't read the "sheet music", but it certainly doesn't matter to her. We actually had to distract her to get her to open other gifts. For those of you who want something perfectly in tune, I guess you shouldn't have bought a toy xylophone!

        not enough instruction

        By mariahsgma

        About Me Grandparent

        Pros

        • Colorful and Fun

        Cons

        • Not Enough Instructions

        Best Uses

        • Toddlers

        Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

        I've never known how to read music so maybe that's the problem but for a starter instrument it could at least give a mini instruction sheet. I don't know what the difference between a solid color and a open face color on the music sheet is. So when we played it according to the colors it sounds off key

        Out of Tune.

        By Tone-Deaf

        from Kerrville, TX

        Pros

        • Looks Like It Should

        Cons

        • Out of tune
        • Short String

        Best Uses

        • Doorstop
        • Paper weight

        Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes Tap-a-Tune® Xylophone:

        This product looked like it should, however, it was completely out of tune straight out of the box. Our D and high C are both off.

        I have an email pending with customer service, will update this review if my situation is resolved. In the meantime, I'd suggest that if you cannot verify tune in the store, don't order.
