    How much do you want to spend?

    Is the child taking lessons/will be taking lessons? If so, does the teacher have any recommendations?

    Do you want something that sounds and feels like a Piano, or do you want an electronic keyboard to make synthesiser and electronic music noises?

    My advice is that it's best to start of with an 88 key weighted keyboard, yes they may be more expensive, but the full 88 key will make it easier for the learner to play on proper grand pianos if they wanted to and not find it hard going from 61's to 88's.
    Weighted is just the quality of the sound and the sensitivity, you only learn one, make it a bit harded to make it easier, if that makes sense!

    Later on if it turns to chaos

    See the crack, pull it back from the window, you stay low..<3 :o
    Say when !
