1) Eastcoast Soprano Ukulele: ukuleles have enjoyed new popularity in recent years and these affordable models are perfect for kids, and great fun!
2) Yamaha PSR-E343 Keyboard: piano & keyboard are still the most popular instruments for children. This Yamaha model is quite affordable, with realistic feel and onboard lessons, ideal for children who are learning (and even grown ups, too!)
3) Eastcoast 3/4 Size Classical Guitar: classical guitars are the most popular kind of guitars for children, due to softer strings. 3/4-sized models are cheap and better suited for small hands. Eastcoast offer them in different colours.
4) Stagg 5-Piece Junior Drum Kit: this complete drumkit for children comes with everything the yound drummer will need - inc. drum throne, cymbals and drumsticks. A real bargain!
5) Eastcoast Black Guitar & Amp Pack: at under £100, this is our most affordable guitar starter pack and includes one of the best beginners guitars for the price, plus all accessories needed. A fantastic, rockin' deal!
6) Plastic Kazoo: everyone loves the kazoo! Fun for all the family and said to be the easiest instrument to play. At £1 each, it's a great little gift! Talking about cheap, the Egg Shaker is another £1 fun little instrument. The kids love it! Please note: not recommended for children under 3yrs.
7) : Eastcoast 3/4 Size Bass Guitar: not everyone wants to be Jimi Hendrix or Kurt Cobain after all! For future Paul McCartneys out there, an Eastcoast 3/4 size bass is the perfect starting point: quality, affordability and perfect size for kids! Please note - you may need to buy extra accessories, too, as the bass doesn't come in a pack: bass amp and lead are essential. But gigbag, tuner, pick and strap also recommended. 
8) Eastcoast Acoustic Guitar: this full-size acoustic guitar is not ideal for small children, but perfect for kids in their early teens to get started on a proper, adult-sized instrument. 
9) Latin Percussion Cajon: the cajon is a very fun, compact percussion instrument that can be great fun for a kid! It's basically a box you sit on, and tap on its sides to create a variety of drum sounds. Cheaper and much smaller than a drumkit, but no less fun!
10) Slash (Guns'N'Roses) Epiphone Guitar Packs: we really did leave the best for last! The new Epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul Special II Outfit Pack and the Epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul Performance Pack are the best beginners guitar starter packs available, and would be fantastic gifts to any teen who's starting to play guitar. Perfect for future guitar heroes!
