We got the chance to play with WowWee’s Paper Jamz Guitar and Amp (a drum set is also available), coming out in July. These are cool toys for budding musicians and allow you to play along to your favorite songs or play some freestyle chords.
The toys have capitative surfaces, which means you can actually perform multitouch actions. There are no moving buttons except for the power switch and everything is controlled by touching the surface of the guitar. The guitar is $24.99 and the amp is $14.99.
These were quite a bit of fun at our booth at the Disrupt conference and the kids seemed to enjoy them. I’d recommend them for someone a bit older, though, because my son is four and didn’t quite get the my “None more black” jokes.
