Wow Wee Paper Jamz Guitar Review

I was recently surprised when my 5 year old came home toting the Wow Wee Paper Jamz Guitar. Well I can’t really say I was surprised – My husband has been whining about buying this for our son (so he says) since he first heard about it months ago! So, the day it comes out my husband and son go running out the door to Walgreens of all places to purchase the Paper Jamz Guitar.

A few things to mention:
1. It’s not really paper – It’s plastic
2. It’s only $25.00
3. It’s not obnoxiously loud…Unless you have an amp.

There are a few different ways to play:

*Perfect Play
Basically this mode plays one of three songs while you happily play along…The should call it Air Guitar mode. Oh and feel free to sing…we won’t laugh.

*Rhythm mode

With this mode you feel a little more like the rockstar you really are… You get to control the rhythm of each song.

*Freestyle: Exactly what it sounds like. You get to rock out to your own beat…What a free spirit you’re becoming.

Now for the Pros and Cons:

Pros:
Good Price
Easy to use
Not too hard on the ears!
Can be used with an amplifier (but there is no reason your kids need to know that)
3 ways to play

Cons:
Only three songs*
No volume control

Bottom Line:

This is a pretty good buy. It doesn’t replace Guitar Hero or Rockband. However for the younger child who WANTS to play Guitar Hero but can’t necessarily maneuver the controls its a great alternative.
