Review: LeapFrog Touch Magic Rockin’ Guitar! #LFTouchMagic #spon
This month, I’ll be sharing a couple of amazing new LeapFrog products with you. We love LeapFrog! We have everything from the Letter Factory DVD (which taught Nicole all her letter sounds!) to not one but two Leapster Explorers. In our home, LeapFrog is our go-to educational product; perfect for birthdays and Christmas and hey, let’s call it homeschool ‘curriculum,’ okay? ;) Today I’ll be reviewing the LeapFrog Touch Magic: Rockin’ Guitar!
Toys are so high tech now. It’s crazy. They call this product line ‘touch magic’ and it seriously is magic.
The front of the guitar is a flat slick surface. Your children simply strum their fingers over the guitar ‘strings’ and the guitar starts playing. If you strum slow, the singing and music slow down. If you strum fast? The guitar speeds up as the singer starts singing really fast. It has extra fun buttons for jamming on the guitar – like a slide button, or a drum solo button, and you can even coordinate your own applause!
One thing I really liked about this guitar was that it has ten different songs. With all the customization features like the guitar solo, silly sounds, and a choice of acoustic or electrical guitar, this toy won’t drive you crazy. You know the toys with poor recording, and they have one song choice? One song choice your child plays over and over and over and over until you start fantasizing about bashing it until a million pieces?
This toy is so not like that.
The Rockin’ Guitar is totally an active-play toy. The music is so fun and upbeat, my children took turns being the person who played the guitar and the person who danced. Nicole got really into it, as you can see below. I loved how they worked together, and I love the shot (above) of Nicole showing Abigail how to play!
