Little Tikes PopTunes Guitar

Sometimes the best musical toys come in the smallest packages. The Little Tikes PopTunes Guitar is a little toy guitar that can deliver a big sound and a lot of fun for your child. It lights up, and it plays songs your child will recognize and enjoy. Your child can also pretend that they are playing some of the most popular guitar riffs of all-time, while they work on their next big rock hit.

Basic Features of the PopTunes Guitar

The Little Tikes PopTunes Guitar is shaped like a rock star guitar, and it is lightweight and compact enough that your child can play it just like his musical heroes. There are red and blue LED lights built into the guitar that light up when your child triggers a song or a riff. There are three play guitar strings that each trigger a different guitar riff when they are struck. There is a toy whammy bar on the guitar that will trigger different sound effects when it is used.

The manufacturer has set the retail price for this compact little guitar at $19.99, which does not include sales tax, shipping or any guitar lessons to be an awesome player. Parents should consider comparison shopping to try and find a retailer who is selling this toy at a discounted or promotional price.

This durable little toy is the perfect size and weight for any child, and it can definitely take the abuse your little rock star will dish out. The manufacturer has set the age range for this toy at two years old and up, but there are not small parts that can make this a choking hazard for smaller children. As long as the parents don't mind the noise, this toy can get any child rocking at just about any age.
