This review is from: Wow Wee Paper Jamz Guitar Instant Rockstar - Rock 3 - Hot Rod (Toy)
I bought this for my son's 5th birthday. He has an acoustic guitar, but prefers to mess with mine (Grrr). However this is WAY more exciting. Choice of 3 songs 1. Beginners classic "Smoke on The Water", 2. "Born To Be Wild" and lastly "Mississippi Queen". I looked at all 5 Paper Jamz guitars and this is definitely the best choice of songs.
I had it delivered to school and my music teacher colleague was unexpectedly enthralled with it. Rocking on in the staff room. My son loves it and other children of all ages (up to 45) have loved it.
I wanted to see one working, but ToysRus would not take one out of the box. Basically, there are 3 modes. 2 Play along (one stops the music when you stop strumming) and free play. You strum the space where the strings should be and you are rewarded with the chord as the music plays on in the background. Not sure that chords works at all, maybe in a 1 finger barre sense. Maybe the other mode is more musical.
Brilliant fun, great value and a good intro to getting kids into playing music.
