    The lack of any type of identification on the front panel is distressing. Even kids might want to know what they're doing other than pounding on buttons and turning dials. Especially for the longevity aspect. It's just lines pointing everywhere. Could have added some question marks to make it extra confusing. I know what synths are and I'M baffled by what is going on here! lol Will kids over 3 actually like this thing? Will kids under 3 actually care?
