This thing is bananas. And by bananas I mean crazy fun. Just make sure that when you give this to a child, you're prepared for the constant music and noise which they will produce with it. Better yet, give it to the child of a parent you dislike, the kid will have a great time and the parent will go insane!
There are only two negatives I found while using this. One: Chipmunk voice inflector cannot be recorded (though it does sound hilarious) and two: No instruction manual.
However, it's not too difficult to figure out, but lemme help you out.
Blue sliding switch at the base - Turns the unit on and off and then has one more loudness it can be turned up to.
Large red microphone button - Hold this to record, when released the recording is finished (an applause will sound so take a bow).
Left green song button - Plays instrumental versions of the songs.
Right green song button - Plays the same songs with words.
Left chipmunk blue button - When held makes your voice sound high pitched and funny.
Right blue 'play' symbol button - Plays the recording you make.
You can record singing on top of either versions of the songs by pressing the green button followed by holding the red, however you cannot record the 'chipmunk' voice sadly. The microphone has flashing LEDs. The buttons are easy to press and the toy itself is durable with no sharp edges!
- Large, easy to press buttons.
- Ability to sing along to the songs with vocal or simply instrumental.
- Kids love it.
- Noisy for parents.
- Batteries not included.
- No instructions/ability to record chipmunk voice.
This toy takes 3 AA batteries which are not included so make sure to have these on hand.
