Paper Jamz Guitar..A fun toy for kids of all ages
Last week I told you about the Paper Jamz microphone that turns anyone into a rock star..even me. But I couldn’t bring myself to force my singing on you..even improved by the microphone. I am less shy about the Pro Series guitar. Now I can’t carry a tune in a basket but I managed to sound not bad on this guitar. What do you think?
The Pro Series improves on last year’s model with a built-in whammy bar and accelerometer that really make the guitar wail, and now has 14 active frets for a wider range of notes. Each Pro Guitar has three modes: Freestyle, which lets you play real chords and notes to create your own music; Rhythm, which controls a song’s rhythm for performances that are always in the right key; and Perfect Play, which allows you to select a song and strum along perfectly.
It comes with two preloaded songs but you can upload new songs..up to three at a time..you need to install the Paper Jamz Pro desktop app on your PC or Mac. Then connect your Pro Guitar to your PC via the included USB cable, and drag and drop song files into the desktop app. The app will let you know if the song will work on your Paper Jamz device. The Pro Guitar supports MP3 and M4A file formats. Alternatively, you can purchase songs via the The Pro Series list, which has dozens of certified-compatible tunes. Check out this video to see what you can do with this guitar.
If your child is musically inclined he or she would love to see the Paper Jamz Pro Series Guitar under the Christmas tree. It is available in a bunch of different styles at Home Hardware, Sears, Toys R Us, Walmart and Zellers. It is also available online at the WowWee Toy Shop for $39.99
