Guide Review - Sing-A-Ma-Jigs - Singing, Harmonizing Toys Are So Much Fun!

Sing-A-Ma-Jigs are unique, singing toys that harmonize when you play with two or more. They sing different notes but they're all tuned so they sound good together. They're sold separately so each is fun on its own, but the real fun starts when you add to the chorus.

Unlike any other singing toy I've seen, Sing-A-Ma-Jigs have a unique look, unique sound and unique functionality when you play with them together.

They come in four colors and each has its own personality and signature song. One sings, "Home on the Range" while another sings, "Skip to my Lou." The third sings, "When the Saints Go Marching In" and the fourth sings, "Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone." These songs aren't as familiar to small kids as, say "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" or "Old MacDonald," but they'll get the hang of playing them, one note at a time, rather quickly.

I think Sing-A-Ma-Jigs are a must-have toy and I think children will really enjoy them.
