EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Play along with the Beat Bugs (and the music of The Beatles) with the Beat Bugs Band Crick's Guitar. Based on the Netflix series Beat Bugs, an animated show that uses kid-friendly versions of the music of The Beatles, this toy guitar features three ways to play and three Beatles songs: "Ticket to Ride", "Birthday", and "Hey Bulldog".

The first mode is a free play mode. Kids can press the string buttons to play different notes, and even hold and press one of the three fret buttons while also pressing the string buttons to change the way the notes sound. And the included music guide shows kids how to play guitar riffs from each of the three included Beatles songs.

In the second mode, kids can press any of the three fret buttons to hear one of the three Beatles songs played. As the music plays, the fret buttons light up. This is strictly a music playback mode. The string buttons won't play any notes in this mode.

And in the third mode, kids can pick one of the Beatles songs to play, and then press the string buttons to play along.

Is It Fun?

This is a cute and colorful way to bring the music from Beat Bugs to life for preschoolers. Kids who are fans of the Netflix series will enjoy hearing some of their favorite songs and getting to play along with them. This will inspire creative music play in the free play mode, and encourage kids to sing and play as they pretend to be the Beat Bugs character Crick. It's a fun way to introduce today's kids to the music of The Beatles, and parents won't mind hearing the music every time their kid plays with this toy.

Who It’s For

The Beat Bugs Band Crick's Guitar is for ages 3 and up. It will be a fun toy guitar for preschoolers who are fans of the Beat Bugs series. And parents won't mind hearing the music of The Beatles every time their child plays with this toy.

What To Be Aware Of

This toy guitar comes with three AAA batteries that power the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing them before you play for best results.

To change between the modes, you turn the knob on the guitar. Because the knob only has to be turned the slightest bit to go the next mode, that small movement might be tricky for preschool hands.

Make sure you open up the packaging to retrieve the instructions and music guide.
