Great Musical Toys?

We're keen to get some good musical toys for our two, but haven't really found anything great so far.
I did buy a Fisher Price Kick 'n Play Piano, but the switch was faulty and it didn't work so I took it back! Today we saw the LeapFrog Musical Learning Table, and it was ok but a little... "push a button, get snippet of music" iykwim? I realise our boys are still very young but I would kind of like something that you could perhaps play your own tune on?
Anyway, enough blabbering on - would love to get some other suggestions for musical toys to check out!

I have the FP classical chorus piano. DS has had it since birth. I don't know if it would be suitable for you now but I like it as it is able to grow with him.
In the beginning DS just lay under it and it played classical tunes. Then he progressed to hitting it whilst lying to activate the tunes himself. ATM we have changed the leg position and have him sitting up at it and it can be set to either play the whole tune, a snippet or 5 different keys to make a tune of his own. It can also be used in this position when the baby knows how to stand.
My sister's 20 month old DS likes to play with it too when he visits.
I know there are lots of other musical toys too. FP do a bigger version as well, where the baby can stand at it and there is lots more to do. I can't remember the name of this one though. Maybe do a search on the FP website.

Fisher Price have recently released a Baby Grand Piano - that's what nan is getting my little one for her 1st birthday.
It looks really cute.

Something my now 14 month old DS has loved is his musical instruments. in Myer there is a brand of toys called Parents (apparently all the toys were inspired/tested on real life parents) - anwayy he got a big plastic drum kit full of musical instruments - and little enough to hold on to... he got them for Xmas when he was around 8 months and plays with them all the time. I got them when they were on special for around $25-$30. A friend of mine also has them and her boy loves them to death too!

My sis-in-law passed this toy on to us and our 8 month old absolutely adores it - he's not big into toys at all but he shows heaps of interest in this one so I think it's fantastic. It's called the Leap Start Learning Table I'll attach the link now for you.
Hope this helps.
Sorry I just realised it was the same one you looked at - anyway just to let you know that it was a big hit with both my DS and my nephew too.
