Schoenhut toy pianos have delighted children, collectors, and professional musicians for decades. Since the company's founding in 1872 by German emigrant Albert Schoenhut, the keyboard's magical overtones, hypnotic charm, and unique sound have matured from novelty to fine musical instruments. Unsurpassed in quality, pitch, and durability, each traditional model is still crafted entirely by hand and individually tuned. The unique chime-like notes of Schoenhut toy pianos are produced by little hammers striking metal bars, versus conventional taut wires used in full-sized models. Schoenhut toy pianos, designed for children and built to endure active play, are appropriate for young and old alike. Juiliard-graduate Margaret Leng Tan, an internationally acclaimed concert pianist, is an ardent fan of Schoenhut. "Anything you can play on the big piano, you can play even better on a toy," Ms. Tan told USA Today upon release of her CD "The Art of the Toy Piano" (Point Music).
