Accordions are quite special instruments that now enjoy great popularity. They have been delighting young and old for a long time. But what should you look for when it comes to buying accordions for kids?

We want to help you out with a checklist and also offer direct product recommendations so that you can find exactly the right product for your child!

Checklist For Accordions For Children

Age
  • Your child can start playing the accordion as early as age 3.
  • Check if the size of your model fits your child. It should be able to perform all functions without any problems.
Support System
  • Make sure that the carrying system is ergonomic and suitable for children. This way your child does not have to adjust complicated straps. In addition, comfortable play is a prerequisite for fun play.
  • Strap systems that go over the entire chest and distribute the weight of the instrument as well as possible have proven particularly effective. In this way, you can avoid posture problems caused by one-sided strain.
  • Make sure that the straps are adjustable, as small children grow quickly.
Material
  • Make sure the material is non-toxic. Since small children like to put things in their mouths, your accordion should not contain any harmful substances. The manufacturer should have declared it accordingly.
  • Models made of wood or pollutant-free high-quality plastic are recommended.
  • Straps should be made of leather or fabric.
Weight
  • Children’s accordions should not be too heavy, but comfortable to play. They usually have a weight between 600 g and 2.5 kg.
  • Be sure to buy an instrument that is appropriate for your child’s size. If your child is of normal size for his or her age, you can usually go by the manufacturer’s age recommendation.
  • Usually the dimensions are within the following ranges: height -> 20 – 30 cm; width -> 23 – 29 cm; depth -> 10 – 16 cm.
Buttons and Keys
  • Button accordions are easy to use from an ergonomic point of view. The buttons are placed close to each other and are easy to reach.
  • Button accordions are a bit more complicated to play, but in the long run they offer a better introduction from a music pedagogical point of view.
Learning Effect
  • If the accordion is to serve your child as an introduction to the world of music, choose a high-quality instrument right from the start. Giving a cheap toy accordion as a present could well diminish the fun of making music. Tone purity and playability often leave much to be desired.
  • If your child starts with a toy, a better model should be purchased soon if there is a noticeable interest in the instrument.
