Each page is displayed horizontally so that children can see the open pages directly over the xylophone keys. When the child presses an icon button, a melody will play. At the same time, a bright LED for each note lights up in sync with the melody, so children can follow along with the xylophone mallet. In addition, children can use their imaginations and create songs on their own.
