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

You can sing along with the Beat Bugs when you've got the Beat Bugs Sing Along Microphone. It functions like a real microphone and plays a snippet of the song "All You Need is Love" as heard on the Netflix series so that kids can sing along with Crick, Walter, Buzz, Kumi, and Jay. And all of those characters are featured in a graphic pattern on the front of the microphone. As the music plays, a red LED light flashes on the front of the microphone.

There is also a built-in audio cable so that you can plug the microphone into an MP3 player or other music device and sing along to some of your other favorite music. There are two vocal functions for using this as a karaoke microphone. If you push the vocal button to "echo", you can just sing along with the song's vocals, but if you push it to "sing", the microphone will mask out the original vocals so that it will just be your voice singing.

Is It Fun?

Beat Bugs fans will have fun playing and singing with this microphone. This toy allows kids to recreate what they've seen on the show and sing along with their favorite characters, as well as imagine all-new musical performances. And because the built-in music is a song originally by The Beatles, we don't think mom or dad will mind too much hearing it on repeat.

The vocal features are pretty cool, though will probably be more appreciated by slightly older kids.

Who It’s For

The Beat Bugs Sing Along Microphone will be a fun music toy for fans of the Beat Bugs Netflix series ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

This is available exclusively at Target.

The microphone includes three AAA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so you'll probably want to replace them before you play for best results.

The audio cable is located underneath the battery door. You can keep the audio cable out while still screwing the battery door closed.
