    Don't judge UAS. A car-uke is a good excuse to indulge in UAS.

    Why did I keep one in the car (pre-COVID. Not enough driving with COVID restrictions)?

    If it’s not causing problems it’s not a problem.

    That's young enough it could be dangerous if strings break or pieces come off. A bit older and a uke as a toy could work. It'll be a while before they play it as an instrument, but they can enjoy...
