I want to buy my son a digital piano, found one that seems ok for kids Any of you ever had any experience with it or with any other model and could give me some feedback? Any help would be appreciated, TIA!

I used to have a Yamaha, with weighted keys, wasn't all that expensive to buy, nice instrument, I bought it around about 2012 for around £240; my great nephew has it now. :)

I imagine this message might be too late to be of use to you, though here's what I found recently when looking into this myself: while not the only pianos discussed, one that ... a_keyboard seems to be in agreement with ... beginners/ on as a good inexpensive-ish option is the Casio Privia PX-S1000 (or the older PX-160 which it's replacing). Casio's compatible 3-pedal board is often sold separately, in which case the model number to look up is SP34 (or SP33 for the older PX-160, though that also requires their CS67 stand in particular I think). I don't know where you're located, but if you can't find them locally then I've found Reverb to often have some more-than-fair (and also some less-than-fair) prices on these.

We got our daughter a casio px-s1000. The key action is very convincing, and it's amazingly small and light for a hammer-action digital keyboard. It can be run on AA batteries, so she has been able to take it outside to play music with friends. She's 5 feet tall and weighs under 100 pounds, but she could manage it herself.

I've been impressed with how it sounds--it has two piano voicing and then an electric piano and some organ voicings as well, and I think a "strings" voicing, but its really all about the piano

I have Yamaha P45 with weighted keys. A nice option for the money, keys feel like a real piano. Can't say more, because have a very poor experience.
