For parents of the world’s next Chopin, a Schoenhut piano is an absolute must. The world-famous company, founded in 1872 by toy instrument maker Albert Schoenhut, has been winning awards for its elite baby grands practically since its inception. Its upright and tabletop pianos boast up to 49 keys, and deliver pitch-perfect sound quality using either strings or hammer-and-rod chimes. Scaled-down ukuleles, harmonicas, harps, guitars, and drum sets are available as well, complete with beginner’s guides to reading sheet music.
Lots of outdoor playtime means you should stock up on the colorful toys from Melissa & Doug! Gardening sets, hopscotch mats, and toy lawnmowers are perfect for the backyard, and beanbag tosses and racquet-and-ball sets keep kids busy while you're relaxing at the beach.
