My real dad got me one for my birthday or christmas one year. I played that thing so much and learned to play the piano and read music on it when I was a kid. It was light pink and I put a Lisa Frank sticker on the left side speaker...of course I cut out holes in the slats so my glorious music would come through the sticker.

We have been on a long search for a micro-sized toy keyboard from around the early to mid 80's. It seems that your description "little hand held keyboard" is what we are looking for. Christine, unfortunately I think you are referring to the Casio SK-1, which is much larger. From what we can remember, it was a PALM sized keyboard that came in a variety of colors (pink, light blue..). Maybe 5" long at most. It was stored in a little flimsy plastic case similar to a checkbook. I believe that only the black keys were functional and they were made of a soft rubber that really only could be pressed down in the middle of the key. Along with the keyboard there was a little paper songbook. Inthe80s - do you have a picture of the toy you describe?? Any information would be helpful. Thank you!!

I know what little piano keyboard you are referring to. I had 2 of them, they were obtained withe UPC codes from cereal boxes (not sure which ones). I paid for the shipping & handling though. I had 2 of these. They ran on little watch batteries. Good Luck!!!!

Oh, does anyone remember those sassy songs that the keybords could play on their own. The ramba, the samba. I thought they were so cool and drove my parents crazy with them.

I remember everyone had a Casio keyboard, even if they couldn't even play chopsticks! I could barely play the piano and had no intention of playing one, but yet I had a Casio and I was making laser gun noises while dogs barked Jingle Bells on Christmas day!

Yes, I had one of these. I could never really play it, but thought it was the coolest thing.

Mine came from a store in the mall called Pizaz, its long gone. Its much like a Claires. Had lots of cool trendy stuff and I got one of these there it was grey. They also sold those laser sound keychains.

OOOOOH! I went through a bunch of these as a kid. I remeber playing all the songs in the lil books and I'd take it apart to see how it worked. whoopsie. They were like a dollar or less I think. They used to sell thses in every drug store, toy store and department store now, I can't find them anywhere!!

I'm pretty sure the one I had was casio but it was so cool! It had light up keys so that you could play along with the chosen song and had three cards you could put in - each one with quite a few songs - I remember Michael Jackson's beat it among others. I also remember the small ones that looked like a cheque book but love and miss the bigger (but still small) one I had.

I had a Casio keyboard, it was a large proper one that cost me $200 back in about 1991, when I was about 10, I had to save up my pocket money for ages to afford it. Mine played the locomotion, the kylie Minogue song and it had something like 200 sound effects on it.

I have the Radio Shack equivalent. It looks identical, but was made by Radio Shack. It performs the same as the Casio.
