Toy Piano

Since Rob suggested I start my pet thread, I'll appropriately kick it off with a twitpic: http://twitpic.com/hf6ix - toy instrument part of the ensemble preparing for Mauro Lanza's Vesperbild #musikFabrik (twitter). I'm not sure if the wine glass is part of the instrumentation.

Can't say anything for the music, but a great bunch of toy piano pictures and toy piano weirdos.
Curiosity value only.

Does anybody know were I could get a toy piano in Sydney? I've always wanted one but have never seen any for sale.

For some reason, the message above which I wrote over a year ago now has yesterday's date on it. Weird :)

I just turfed out 4 of them after playing the John Cage piece. Depending on how 'in tune' you'd like it, Barbie have a decent 36 note one which is pretty cheap at Target when they are in stock. They are pretty disgusting really.
