        This little Uke is killer for the money. Like I said, the strings are crap, the tuners are cheap-but outside that, it's ace all-around.

        I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to ANYONE who wants to get started in Uke playing, OR to anyone with young kids they want to teach about instruments-this gives them a child size instrument (it's about the size of a parlour guitar on my daughter) to take care of, clean, and care for, keep tuned, and all that. AND, if they neglect it, you've only lost going to Starbucks for a couple of weeks. Nothing major, so, it's not such a heartbreak.

        I will be ordering a second one (for me-I'm going to get the Smiley Face and "Watchmen" it out-my daughter's got the Starry paintjob) as a backup to my Iby Uke.
        For a basic little Uke, this thing's pretty decent. I mean, the strings are pretty crap, and the tuners are cheap-but other than that, it's made soild, and it's got a nice feeling neck to it.

        They don't tell you in the description, but it DOES come with a cheap little Bottom-Load gigbag (I hate those, personally-they knock your gear out of tune).
        It plays solid. It sounds solid. It's made pretty darn solid, too! My daughter accidentally stepped on hers last night-she weighs about 40lbs. No problem. Now, I'm not saying you should jump up and down on this-it's a Ukulele, not a bouncy fun house.
        I cannot think of a better Uke for the money. This one LOOKS good, it SOUNDS good, it PLAYS good, and it's a great price.

        My PERSONAL Uke is an Ibanez UKS10 (not top of the line, but a GREAT little Uke-it's also twice the cost of this one), and I'd stack this one up against it any day.

        For the price, this could make a decent toss-in-your-car-to-play-in-traffic-jams instrument, a nice thing to throw in the backpack, or, like what I did, a GREAT way to introduce young kids to stringed instruments without breaking the bank!

        This uke has a straight neck, good tuners and good sound considering the "eye shaped" sound holes, however; mine has a poor finish with several blemishes and over paint on the neck. It also has a slightly high 2nd fret causing some intonation issues. That being said, it is not a bad uke for a beginner or for the price. I play it around the house and to entertain friends. And did I mention it is really cute, but it was not worth waiting over 5 months to receive it.

            Comments about Mahalo U-40 Painted Ukulele:

            This uke's visual appeal is obvious. The strings that are on it are playable but most people will be happier with a string change right away. The finish is really shoddy. There are paint runs in one area and the wood sealer chipped off in another area. (They painted over it anyway.) So, don't expect total perfection. The frets are even, smooth and nice and the tuners are more than reliable. I HATE this line when others use it BUT... For this price, I love it.
            It's the perfect uke for a student or starter.

                    Comments about Mahalo U-40 Painted Ukulele:

                    I have an Oscar Schmidt long scale uke that I use for my normal, every day playing. But I wanted something that I wouldn't mind taking out to festivals and in all sorts of weather. When I saw this, I couldn't help myself. It was the most adorable thing I've seen in a while. And it was cheap. I figured it would be perfect for taking out to places that I may not want to take my good uke.
                    The tone isn't outstanding, but for the price it's better than I'd expect. Frets are smooth and intonation is good. The finish is consistent and bright. Tuners are good and stay in tune well.
                    People have complained about it not staying in tune, but they just don't know about how stringed instruments need to stretch. Out of the box, it doesn't stay in tune. But stringing it 1 whole step sharp for 2 days, it now stays in tune great. Look up how to stretch nylon strings, and you won't have any trouble.

                    Like all of the Mahalo painted ukes at this price point, this little beauty is a real instrument. While you won't get the quality sound of a finer instrument, the Mahalo painted ukes are solidly built and are perfect for anyone who is not able or ready to put a lot of cash down for a ukulele. These would be good in schools etc too. I bought mine purely for the smily-face-happiness-factor and it does not disappoint! After it came, I just had to buy a few more to give out as gifts! Don't be discouraged that initially you have to tune and retune the strings. They will eventually stretch out and only need tweaking like any other stringed instrument. My advice: If you like being happy and spreading joy to others, buy this ukulele! You can learn how to play when you get it :)

                    This is a well made inexpensive instrument that works well, but is greatly improved by simply getting better strings. If you are a serious player you might prefer a more expensive one.

                          i just smile when i look at it - i bought it because i smiled when i saw it!
                          it's not playable coming straight out of the box (naturally) so i took the easy way out and went to a guitar center for help
                          i don't put it in the free case because it does mess up the tuning but who wants to hide a smiley face anyway?
                          super fun and i think the poor quality is more from me playing my first string instrument!

                            Love the Design choices!I got the American Flag! Great for practice. I agree with other posters about getting better strings. This is my fun camping one! For the price it is a great deal! Highly recommend it for kids, beginners, or a fun back up or go anywhere uke!! Keep strumming!

                            Pretty cool little thang for cheap, bang for the buck! Ignore all the complainers- string slippage will diminish with use- or changing. Sound is consistent, & did I mention cheap?
