What It Is
Star Darlings Star Wishes Musical Journal by Jakks Pacific is for ages 4 and up. Star Darlings is a Disney Publishing book franchise about a group of 12 teenage girls from the all-girls' school, Starling Academy, who have been chosen to go to Earth and grant 12 very special wishes in order to save Starland from an unknown evil force. This Musical Journal set includes one journal, one notepad, four dual-sided discs, and instructions. To start your music career, first, you'll need to assemble the journal by inserting the cover into the hinges, placing the musical notepad into the tabs, and turning it on. Next, choose one of the records from the record holder. The record A side has the sticker on it and has musical lyrics and the record side B does not have a sticker on it and plays only the instrumentals of the song. To play songs, turn the needle arm towards and above the record. The LED will flash once to indicate it is playing side A and three times to indicate it is playing side B. To stop playing, just move the needle away from the record towards its original position. To add a scratch effect, slide the star button towards the left or right. To record, lift the microphone up about 60 degrees. Then, press the record button to start recording whenever music is playing. You can also record without music. The LED will light up to indicate it is recording your singing. It can record your singing for up to two minutes. When you're done recording, press the record button to stop and the playback button to hear what you've recorded. The LED will keep flashing for the duration of playback. The notebook has the lyrics to the four Star Darlings songs or you can make up and write your own lyrics on the blank pages and record them. When recording, your mouth has to be really close to the mic in order for it to pick up the sound. And we recommend that you speak and sing loud and clear. The feedback can be a bit staticky. The Musical Journal requires three AAA batteries, which are included.
Is It Fun?
Kids will have a blast singing along to Star Darlings songs, scratching records, and best of all coming up with their own original music.
