It is. These Mitchell brand ones are inexpensive, but decent. $25 or $29 is definitely a great price for what you're getting. Do take a look at the size differences, as it makes a difference.

For those not in the know:

- a Soprano uke is a standard size, the Concert uke is a little bigger. If you have big hands, go with the Concert (or even better Tenor/Tenor XL if you can find one). There are Baritone ukes too which are bigger still, but they're tuned differently so stay away from those until you know what you're doing Smilie
The baritone uke is tuned exactly like the top four strings of a guitar (D-G-B-E).
So if you already know how to play guitar, you can just pick up a baritone uke and start playing.

Thanks for the info. My kid is interested in a Ukulele, and maybe taking lessons for it. Would the $25 Soprano be alright? I have no musical instrument experience, so I don't know what's worth while. Are these OK to learn on, and then maybe spring for something better if he really gets into it? Or does it not matter very much, because Ukuleles aren't like violins?

Looking at some of the reviews, I think I'm going to pass. Some are saying that you have to tune it each time you play it. Since you got me looking for Ukelele's, I did find one on Monoprice that appears decent but is more costly: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=610305

Cordoba is probably the "go-to" working schmo brand to look at. $150-$200 is the price range where you'll start to see quality instruments. These Mitchells are probably fine to learn on and will get him where he needs to be. The reviews seem to be positive and this model usually sells around $50-$70.

I know, but for beginners they're going to be seeing things on YouTube and wondering why their instrument doesn't sound like the ones in the video laugh out loud

I've messed around with a Soprano for years, but the kid-sized fretboard can be tricky. I think I might try the concert — I have two Mitchell guitars (a dreadnought and a 7/8-scale for kids) and they're amazing values. I'm happier with my $150 guitar than either of the sub-$500 Alvarez or Yamaha I've owned before.

Tuning is probably just cheap strings. Often they hold their tune after a few days/weeks of use. Some people can be quick to judge.

It can also be a sign of cheap strings. Could replace if a big issue. But this is a pretty good deal for $30 and give it some time before replacing strings.

You are probably right about the strings. The one I linked includes a case, tuner, strap (which based on the reviews doesn't attach? LOL) and extra strings. The Q&A says they are Aquila New Nylgut strings (Whatever those are). My daughter is learning this instrument this year and I have always wanted to learn, so I figured I would take the plunge and bought a couple of them.

I would suggest YES! My toddlers both are beginning to engage in our three Ukes. They hold them, strum them, listen to me play. Its great.

I have found lesser expensive Ukes like this can sound great. They also might take a beating from the toddler but now I'm not too stressed if it gets scratched or damaged. A more expensive Uke and I would have to be much more defensive.
