Full disclaimer, if you have the means then you will want to upgrade to a digital piano with weighted keys, which will be covered in a separate article. This is because weighted keys will simulate the weight that you would naturally get from an acoustic piano which builds finger strength and in general, will be better for building solid piano technique.
If you are budget-minded and just looking to play around and have fun, and not so concerned about becoming the next Horowitz for you or your child, then these pianos will be good enough to get started!

This digital piano comes with a stand, stool, headphones, microphone and sticker sheet -- if these were accessories on your "buy" list, why not save some money and buy them in a package deal? Please note, this piano does not have weighted keys and the touch has been described as "toy-like" by multiple reviewers. This would be good for beginners just trying to see if they like piano and would be great for singers as well -- singers do not need to have weighted keys but will benefit from owning a keyboard to train their ear, and the microphone and headphones are a plus. We don't recommend using sticker sheets to aid in learning piano since it can be a crutch, but they are included in this package as well.
This keyboard can be played using battery power or the included AC adapter, so it's very practical for aspiring musicians on the go. Casio is also a known brand name so you know that you are purchasing from a company that has been around for a while.
It also includes a "Step-up Lesson System" which can help teach you the basics!
