Perfect starter instrument for an under-8
RichardFK 16.11.2020
Pros:
- Very nice tone
- Holds tuning fairly well
- Very lightweight but still sturdy enough to withstand being left in a toybox
- Very light action so suitable for small fingers
- Despite its short scale-length, it tunes to E-standard, so once your child starts to play properly. they're in the same key as you
- At this price, if your child loses interest, you've not spent a lot of money

Cons:
- The tone is very nice, so you'll be tempted to try and play it yourself, but big-man-hands won't fit very comfortably (if at all)
- Intonation isn't perfect (but if you need this to be perfect, you should probably spend a bit more not not expect wonders from a child's instrument)

This guitar is more than a toy, but is priced like one so if your wee-one is remotely interested (or you want to get them interested), you've nothing to lose.

The only thing I would suggest to anyone who buys it - use an open-tuning for the first while so when your child sits mindlessly strumming, it's at least vaguely tuneful.

For my Daughter
The Raatid2 20.11.2018
I bought this one for my daughter she's so happy it's pink!
I play guitar myself, so I didn't wanted to buy her a "toy". I wanted her to have something she can play with and also learn music with. It's a real guitar, just smaller than the regular one so it easier for a child. I recommend this instrument for a kid that wants to learn the guitar.

Unfortunately, it's impossible to tune this instrument anyhow. Some frets have signs of filing and their edges are knife-sharp.
