I can't understand why voted cold when in elc and toys r us same guitar cost over 20£

Yep its a Soprano ukulele and this will only be good enough for as a toy, not a playable instrument.

Why?

The tuners are compression fit tuners. So they work loose/slip and will not keep strings in tune.
Any half-decent basic uke will have geared machineheads/tuners.

The strings themselves will be pretty much useless and need stretching in for a LONG time before they are workable and then still sound pants. i'm yet to see a sub £20 uke that can realistically be played with its included strings.

Replacement strings will cost about £5 for some decent Aquila strings. Plus paying someone else to fit them if you don't know how. Uke strings do take a little while to stretch in as they are nylon.

Good luck if you find one which has been built with the correct neck angle. I've seen many and none are usable.

OR, spend a bit more like £26 for something more usable OR i'd recommend £34 for a Makala dolphin which comes in lots of cool colours for kids, includes a bag, they also come with Aquila strings now if you get the latest stock. It'll play fine and not sound awful!

The one in ELC has geared machine heads, not the same. They also wrongly call it a guitar.

A Guitar has 6 strings, usually steel on a western acoustic or nylon on a classical guitar. Tuned E A D G B E.
You usually only get smaller guitars that are classical guitars.
Smaller steel strung guitars should be tuned a higher pitch usually, otherwise the strings will buzz/flop around a lot due to lower tension with shorter neck.

A ukelele has 4 nylon strings. Tuned G C E A usually.
A soprano ukulele is the smallest type of uke.

I am reasonably sure this is not intended as serious instrument but for £5 does it matter. Let the little ones rock HEAT ADDED.
