How PianoBall Application works
There are two different piano keyboard modes children can choose to play. The mode with the larger keys make it much easier for babies and younger toddlers while the keyboard mode with smaller keys are good for older children.
Next, There are four magical balls that spin when you tap them located on the keys. The four magical balls are the Tune Ball, Color Ball, Rainbow Ball and Instrument Ball. These four balls allow children to play songs by selecting and playing songs guided by magical stars and lit up keys, paint your keyboard, explore colors all while learning it’s names, play songs by experiment with different instruments like the saxophone, Xylophone, Drum Set and Piano. You can also use the Tune Ball in toddler mode to give toddlers the opportunity to play songs with no mistakes no matter the keys they touch.
