The first product I've been asked to review is the...*drumroll please*
Baby Jamz Jammin' Microphone and the Baby Jamz Nursery Rhyme CD. This is a new hip-hop toy line created by the Family Knowles. The songs on the c.d. are old stand-bys like "This Old Man" and "Mary Had a Little Lamb" but hip-hop-funkified.
I have only three words to describe it: Fresh to Death!
Now, being more of an 80's fan myself, I admit I would have preferred a toy synthesizer which played kid versions of "Just Can't Get Enough" and "Oh l'Amour" but we can't always get what we want. (But we get what we need.)
So what did the boys think? Before we even got the microphone out of the package, both Max and Sam were fighting over it and getting their hip-hop groove on. The mic amplifies your voice but also plays songs and lets you record your voice and play it back. It's the shizzle!
Once the C.D. was pumping the dance party began. Max was poppin' some SERIOUS moves. Arms were flying, heads rocking, and hips, um...gyrating? It was quite a sight.
If you love hip-hop and want to get your kids to get their groove on, you gotta get you some of this action in the hizzle. For rizzle. Oh no I di'nt. Oh yes I did.
(I missed Max's most SWEET dance moves and he couldn't be bothered to recreate them...but you get the idea.)
Oh yeah! You can get the goods at Wal-Mart!
