EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Kids can strum along on the Banjolele from Plan Toys. A mix of a banjo and ukulele, this wooden instrument will inspire a child's musical creativity. It allows kids to explore various sounds while strumming. It features three adjustable strings, and tuner pegs. The strings are replaceable, and there are instructions to restring if necessary. Measuring about 6x15- inches, it’s a nice size for a child the recommended age of 3 and up. Even if a child has not mastered to play actual songs, like us in our video, it is still fun to strum the banjolele on its own or along to some music. It also offers a fun way to work on fine motor skills, and coordination. Like all Plan toys products, this has been manufactured using sustainable practices, water-based dyes, and non-formaldehyde glue, which may appeal to many parents. 

Is It Fun?
This is a well made wooden toy that allows kids to get creative musically. It's not the easiest instrument to play but even if you cannot play an actual song, it is still a lot of fun to strum, and practice on. It also offers a fun way for preschoolers to work on their fine motor skills, and coordination. Additionally, it has been manufactured using sustainable practices, water-based dyes, and non-formaldehyde glue, which many parents will appreciate. 
Who It’s For
The Banjolele from Plan Toys is recommended for kids ages 3 years old and up. It would be fun for both beginner and more advanced players to strum along. 
What To Be Aware Of
The instrument features three adjustable strings, and tuner pegs. The strings are replaceable, and there are instructions to restring, if necessary. There are no instructions included for how to play this instrument but it is self explanatory in terms of strumming the banjolele.


Like all Plan toys products, this has been manufactured using sustainable practices, water-based dyes, and non-formaldehyde glue, which is important to some parents.
