We're big fans of music in our house - and dancing - and jamming. Zion has a set of instruments that she loves to dig through every day, regularly filling the house with her own melodies and beats. So when I learned of the LeapFrog TouchMagic Rockin' Guitar Contest I was pretty excited - mostly because I know she could totally win it!
Better still - we have had an awesome first look at the LeapFrog Touch Magic Rockin' Guitar!! I'm gonna give you a spoiler right now, we are BIG fans of LeapFrog at our house. Zion owns quite a few of their toys - and it's no wonder why she loves them, they are truly built with education, durability and fun in mind! Here are a few details about her new favorite instrument - the Touch Magic Rockin' Guitar:
The Rockin’ Guitar brings musical fun and helps to develop preschool skills with every little touch. Kids can choose to play solo without a backup, play along with a band or select electric or acoustic guitar to play 10 built-in songs including: Rockin’ Robin, Itsy Bitsy Spider, If You’re Happy and You Know It, Pop Goes the Weasel and more. Plus, kids can customize their play experience by adding guitar riffs, silly sounds and drums creating 100+ musical combinations to make every song unique.
When we first opened the box - I have to admit, I felt a little out of touch with technology for a hot second - I may have even had to read the instructions. I was nervous that Zion would get frustrated by the lack of actual guitar strings to strum. Turns out - she picked up the motions quite easily after a couple of times playing with it. Now when she plays - she really gets into it - doing spins, holding it like a pro - and strumming away at the same time.
One of my personal favorite features on the Touch Magic Rockin' Guitar is the ability to make the play along songs turn very "chipmunkish" by strumming fast. Zion and I both giggle whenever it happens. I am certainly impressed with the fact that without any cracks or creases - the guitar can be easily cleaned and wiped down.
