I purchased two Waterman Soprano Ukuleles for my girls (Ages: 6 & 5). These are a great starter uke to learn to play on. The fun colors are great and the sound quality is too for a plastic instrument. The girls wanted to keep playing my more expensive models and I wanted to keep their drive to learn the instrument going. The Waterman was the right choice and I have been very happy to promote KALA Brand instruments. The strings need a little more stretching but for the most part when in tune it's fun all around.
