Toy Pianos

I adore Toy Pianos. Unfortunately, i don't have a really good one yet. The best ones were made by Michelsonne, Jaymar, & Schoenhut. They are very collectable. It's been quite a challenge to find a vintage piano which is still in good condition and affordable...but i haven't given up yet. If only i could go back in time and order one from the Sears and Roebucks catalogue. Until i find one, i'll just have to do with this lovely little online Michelsonne.

Don't give up! And don't believe the snobs either. There are perfectly good old toy pianos out there for less money, but produced by the same companies under different brand names.

Hey Liesbeth & Karl,
Yep, i'll just have to keep lookin'! I have several that are okay but i'm still looking for a really special one!

We must be on the same wavelength. I recently started looking for a toy piano too!

Ooooo... You're right, Karl. There is a lovely Jaymar on Ebay. Going to keep a close eye on it. Two more days of bidding to go. Thanks for the tip!

aaaaaargh. I missed out on a really nice one. I was bidding on it but got distracted during the last minutes because i was in the middle of a rehearsal. It sold for just 20 dollars. CRAP!

But, i've got my eye on two other ones. There is still hope!
