Your Burning Questions Answered
Q: I want a violin that's appropriate for a Barbie-sized doll. Is this the product for me?
A: No. This violin will be too large for Barbie to use as a violin accessory if she's going to look realistic with it. It's more appropriate for a larger-sized doll. On the other hand, if you're buying it as an accessory for a child, it's probably close enough for any small doll. For perspective, one reviewer suggested that on Barbie, the Tiny Violin would look more like a guitar. It is, however, too small for the American Girl-sized dolls.
Q: Does the violin come with the bow? A doll can't "play" it without that important accessory, right?
A: The violin does come with a bow that goes alongside it. The bow can be used to produce sound from the violin.
Q: Can music be played on the violin? Real music, that is, not just squeaky sounds?
A: Unfortunately, the strings for the Tiny Violin are very fragile, and it's not in tune. While you may be able to produce some different sounds, it's unrealistic to expect that you'll be able to produce anything that sounds like music. It might be better to allow your doll to pretend to play the violin while the music plays from a CD player, MP3 player, or other musical device. Of course, it can't sound too different from a child learning how to play the violin in the first place.
Q: Is the product as detailed and beautiful as a real violin? I want one that will be appropriate for display, not just everyday use.
A: The Tiny Violin is beautifully detailed and appropriate for either everyday display or regular use as a gag referring to the "world's smallest violin" reference. It is not at all out of place in an office setting, but it's also appropriate for doll play if a child wishes to enhance their creativity with this product.
