LeapFrog Touch Magic Rockin' Guitar.

So today I'm blogging about another great product from the LeapFrog Touch Magic Line.  The Touch Magic Rockin' Guitar:
I blogged before about how much I love this Touch Magic technology and the same awesome applies here.  The toy just feels so techie - slick, polished, and light enough for the kids to carry around.  The guitar is all about motor skills and musical fun.  I tried to get my daughter to mimic the pose in this promo photo:

But she was having none of it.  All of my pictures of her with the guitar look a little something like this:


I couldn't even get a decent picture of the guitar by itself she dances around it so much:


Basically she plays with this toy like it's her own personal jukebox.  She presses the song button until the specific one that she wants comes up and then dances around like a crazy person to it.  I tried to show her how she could dance with the guitar using the strap but she flat out refused.  She won't wear it around her because - wait for it - "It's not a neck-a-lace."  Hilarity.  But even just using this as a jukebox she has quite the song list to choose from:

The Alphabet Song
Rockin’ Robin
If You’re Happy and You Know It
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Pop Goes the Weasel
You’re a Rock Star
Strum Strum Strum!
Having Fun Together
Taking Turns!

That's 10 different songs!  And they all sound like actual songs - not terrible children's toy midi tunes.  Especially when you throw a slamming guitar riff over top (you have the option for either electrical or unplugged if your feeling a little VH1).  

But the real fun is how much The Dude likes it:


 He even tries to put on the strap:


 He's pretty young to understand all of the many, many options and functions of this guitar.  Right now he just flails at it randomly and then bounces up and down to whatever song comes out.  But as he gets older I think this is going to become one of his favorites:

His strumming skills are improving.
Right now LeapFrog is having a Rockin' Guitar Contest.  You can win $500 by taking and uploading a video of your kids rockin' and learning with this guitar or a guitar that they created out of their own materials.  Super fun contest idea!   And the videos posted so far are crazy adorable.  My kids, however, are just crazy.  Instead of a super cute kid bopping around with the guitar I have here a video of some super tired kids dancing to an off-screen Rockin' Guitar.  In their PJ's.  Using their blankets as props like a duo of crazed rhythmic gymnasts.  Enjoy:
