The ukulele is way more then is looks. It seems like a small instrument akin to a toy. If you look a bit closer a world of possibilities opens up. It starts with children, even the youngest of kids kan use a ukulele as "kids guitar". Although technically not a guitar it perfectly serves this role for kids. Thanks to it's small size and soft nylon strings children can easily play this fun instrument. Add to this that it's one of the easiest instruments to play with very simple chords and before you no it you have raised a rockstar to be.
