It's unusual to find a toy accordion. Maybe that's why kids are so drawn to it.
Or is it the overabundance of buttons?
Or kid-kind of work required... pushing and pulling to make music?
Or the fascinating sounds that they make with it?
We're not sure. Whatever the reason, it's never at the bottom of the toy box.
Kids slide their hands in, place fingers over buttons, and pull and squeeze with enthusiasm. It's so fun to listen to, they smile and play faster.
If they are musically inclined, kids can learn all about how the accordion works. The instructions cover how each note is played and how different notes sound depending on whether you're pulling or squeezing.
Kids who REALLY love music learn the two included songs. Easy for beginners, the notes are basic within the C major scale, and the melodies are catchy and familiar, "The Three Blind Mice" and "London Bridge".
Honestly, most kids have no intention of getting good at the accordion. They just love to squeeze and pull and push all the buttons to make music. Though you never know...
Made in the same design as a real button accordion, someday you may say, "It all started with that toy accordion."

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 4 years of age.
Information about Toy Accordion
Posted 12/30/2011 by Lorraine Olson
We were delighted with the quality of this toy accordian. My grandson loved it, but found it a bit difficult to maneuver. He is a bit younger than the suggested age, though; and we anticipate that his strength and dexterity will improve with age. (It was hard for him to open and close the accordian--kind of stiff) His older brother (Age 8) had no problem working it, though; and he readily played it for us!
