What It Is
The Baby Genius Be a Star Sing Along Jukebox, from Jakks Pacific's Tollytots division, looks like a real jukebox, and kids insert plastic coins and use the letter and number buttons on the front to listen to Baby Genius songs. There are more than 40 songs to choose from. Kids can switch to karaoke mode and use the pretend microphone stored on the side to sing along. LED lights flash along to the beat for a rocking light show. There are two volume settings. A Baby Genius DVD is included with the jukebox.
Is It Fun?
This is a cute little toy jukebox that is easy for preschoolers to use. They'll like being able to choose what songs they hear and sing along using the pretend microphone.
Who It’s For
The Baby Genius Be a Star Sing Along Jukebox is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The karaoke mode really isn't karaoke. As noted, the microphone is only a pretend microphone, so kids can't actually sing into it and have their voices projected. In this mode, kids just pick a song like they would in jukebox mode and sing along, which is probably how they play in jukebox mode.
Four AA batteries are included for the in-store try-me features. It is recommended that you replace the batteries before you play for best results.
