buying a toy piano:

you can order a new toy piano from schoenhut through on-line resellers. if you are going to order a schoenhut piano, my best advice is to telephone the schoenhut piano company directly and ask which models are currently available. be as specific as you can about what you are looking for. they can be contacted through their web-site:
