This affordable ukulele is aimed at younger players, and as such has the compact size and easy playability to match.

It is also available in many different colors that are meant to appeal to its target market, including multi-color variations that include circles, stripes and camouflage.

Not much info is provided about the specs, aside from it having a maple bridge, nickel silver frets, nylon strings and guitar style tuners.

Some users describe the body as being made from a composite material.

It also ships with a gig bag.

Pros

Looks like its colorful charm works well for most who bought this ukulele for their kids. And while some of them admit that build quality is not perfect, many of them feel that it's well built considering its price. Being portable and comfortable to play also gets mentioned multiple times by satisfied owners.

Cons

There are some complaints regarding cosmetic imperfections, and it has the usual tuning problems that plague cheap stringed instruments. Some recommend changing the strings ASAP to enjoy it better. Obviously, its small size might be uncomfortable for those used to bigger ukes.

Overall

If you're looking for a colorful ukulele to inspire kids to make music, then this is a good option.
