Keira has had a little music playing “microphone” toy since she was an infant that she really loved. It just plays a few simple songs and sound affects with a soft top to it. It’s pretty cute but she has clearly outgrown it. Knowing how much she loved that little mic, I wanted to find a more age appropriate toy with similar functions as she loved being able to play the music and dance around with the mic. I found all that and more in the Shake ‘N Groove Microphone from Playskool.
The Playskool Rocktivity Shake ‘n Groove Microphone toy is fun for the whole family – fun for little ones who love the lights, music and sounds, and fun for you because it’s music you’ll love! How cool will it be when your little one shakes, shimmies and grooves to “Born This Way,” made popular by Lady Gaga? Your little one’s motions control the tempo of the music, and the fun sound and light effects make every move stimulating and enjoyable. But if it’s getting too noisy, you can use the volume control to bring it on down. Get your groove on with your child and the Shake ‘n Groove Microphone toy!
The Playskool Rocktivity Shake ‘n Groove Microphone features 3 songs (Born this Way (Lady Gaga), Row Your Boat, Baa Baa Black Sheep) and 7 sound effects. It also lights up to the beat of the music and as your child moves around and shakes the microphone the music will speed up or slow down. Your child can also turn on an auto-tune sounding effect by pulling down on the bottom of the microphone.
Keira loves playing with her Microphone and dancing along to the music as you can see in the photo above. I think the Rocktivity Shake ‘n Groove Microphone has gone over even better than her old microphone did.
We are such big fans of Playskools Rocktivity line and Keira has quite a few the toys which she plays with daily. Like most toddlers, she really loves music and dancing around so these toys are just perfect for keeping her active (or as I think of it, tiring her out).
I have to admit though, she can play with it for longer than I can handle so I am thankful that you can not only turn down the volume, but also turn it off.
