Thank you for your help. I will look at Ukeleles. He already enjoys playing with my old 80s Yamaha keyboard (think Ross from friends) and is fascinated by our friend's guitar. I agree that 2 is too young for proper guitar playing / lessons but he will enjoy strumming. Just didn't want to settle for a pink or blue plastic thing from ELC!
I bought DS1 a toy wooden guitar for his 2nd birthday and it has been one of our most played with toys. It came from our local toyshop and was about £10. His 18 month old cousin is obsessed by it and i was thinking of getting him one from Christmas but don;t think the local shop still has them. Will have a look online and let you know if I find one.
Here is a link. This is more deluxe that ours. When I bought DS1's I think I saw them in a couple of different little independent toy shops. Do get one - he was particularly sweet at around 2.6 when he used to make us sit on the carpet whilst he strummed and sang 'baa baa black sheep' in a very good impression of the the guy in the music group that we go to.
just bought one from asda for about 15 quid. would have bought the one BirdyArms linked to had I seen it first though as it looks more like my own which dd(2) love (I had the choice of black or pink at asda)
