I was recently sent theBaby Jamz Jammin' Microphone to try out. I was excited because I love the concept behind Baby Jamz, they are the first hip-hop/rhythm toy line.
The microphone is for ages 18months & up. I gave it to my 6 year old daughter to try out, and I couldn't get it away from her. My 10 year old daughter was even fighting for a turn with it. She told me I better not right that, but hey to me it proves how great this toy is! Their favorite feature is the recording device. I can't even tell you how many things Cammie has recorded since receiving it. Singing, animal noises, talking. The animal noises was so that her Webkinz could talk back to her. The creativity that this toy brought out was amazing to me. I figured she would just play that she was singing with it, but she used it for so many other things.
You can't beat the price either, only $9.97 at Walmart. Which is where you go for the full line of Baby Jamz products. It is very durable as well, it was dropped quite a few times and is still working perfect. The girls have actually been using it so much, that in the evening I've had to hide it.
The product says 18 months and up. I'm not sure that real little ones would get much use out of. The keys to play the songs would be fun, but I'm not sure they would get the recording of it. I let our 2.5 year old neighbor play with it & she loved it as well. The kids figure it out right away as well, none of them needed instructions on how to work it. It does take batteries, so you can replace them as needed.
I would highly recommend giving this a gift, I'm sure it would be a favorite for boys & girls anywhere from 18 months to probably 5 years. Kids older would enjoy it, but might feel silly receiving it. I am hoping that the company will start making more products geared towards older kids as well because what they have so far is fabulous.
