For Christmas, the only thing that Captain Computer wanted was a guitar. Trying to find a decent guitar for a 4 year old that wasn’t a ukelele proved to be a challenge. Thinking that we needed to preserve our eardrums and that perhaps it was a phase, Santa brought him something else. Fast forward 7 months and Captain Computer still continues to be obsessed with guitars. Sigh.
And then we were introduced to Paper Jamz. Paper Jamz instruments ($24.99) are thin, battery-operated guitars that use Active Graphics(TM) Technology that allows kids to play just by touching the surface. Being able to just touch the surface of the guitar where you would usually have to press the strings to form chords while strumming takes far less coordination and instruction for young rockers but more experienced musicians would certainly enjoy practicing their skills on a flat surface.
- Perfect Play – Customers can play along with the three included hit songs while jamming on the guitar “perfectly” as though part of the band.
- Rhythm Play – The rhythm of the music for each song can be controlled — speeding up or slowing down based on personal choice.
- Freestyle Play – The guitar can be played similar to a real guitar, as users can play real chords and create their own songs.
- Karaoke Mode – Customers can mute the vocals, drums or backing
We were sent 2 Paper Jamz guitars for review and while Captain Computer has been busy rocking out on his, Little Miss Techie’s suffered a circuit board malfunction only 24 hours after it arrived. She was quite disappointed that this hot new toy broke so quickly but luckily she improvised by creating her own drum set out of metal tins and Tinkertoy drumsticks (my ears say ouch!) so she and her brother can continue practicing their in real life Rock Band skills.
