Guitar Types

So, in a fit of madness, or (thinks my husband) subconscious evil (because she has the week off and I'm at work all day), I bought the girl a Paper Jamz guitar yesterday. I honestly don't know what possessed me, but lordy me - it ranks right up there in the annoying toy pantheon, and the child loves loves loves it. We have heard the chorus of One Way or Another so many times that I think I'm in college again.

Because I categorically refused to put the batteries into it in the Target parking lot, she was forced to read the packaging in the car on the way home. From the backseat I heard "there's a regular one, and a rock band one, and the one I have, and a vee-shaped one and one shaped like a dress and one shaped like Batman's head."



I'm thinking there's a market for a guitar shaped like Batman's head. Or does one already exist?

Almost got one of these for Red for Xmas. Instead, I got her a purple acoustic guitar. Which she loves to rock out on but mainly my husband plays it for her. Because he can.

I think there is a market for Batman but its not as big as the Lego Star Wars market by a mile.

BubTar's cousins pooled their money to buy him one of these for his birthday later this week. I thought that was very sweet. I wonder if it will be the Batman's head. LOL.

I'd take a Captain jack Sparrow shaped one :-)

One of the places I teach sells a lot of Hello Kitty guitars. Sadly, they are not shaped like a cat head.

Whatever possessed you is, hopefully, not contagious. I have a visceral aversion to Noisy Toys. My kids are noisy enough already!

i think maybe you owe your husband.

also, you may as well start getting ready for middle school band practice, since she has the music bug. i favor acoustics [son played electric bass, and his band was LOUD], but must admit that daughter's sax wasn't a quiet instrument, either.

I WISH I could wear a dress shaped like that, but I'm about double the age I should be to do so.

This is just how I ended up with the cursed Wii (and I know it's fine in your house. My theory is that boys react differently, e.g. become totally obsessed.) - on a whim at vacation time. My error was that I am the one who is home with them.

I'm all for musical instruments, though, because I am trying to right my personal wrongs.

I came this close to getting one of those things.
