Paper Jamz Product Review & $25 Walgreens Giveaway

In my home I have a 5, 7, and 12-year-old.  In addition to this, I frequently have teenagers from church over to my home.  It is a rare thing to find a toy that is suitable for all ages.

When I was told I would be receiving a Paper Jamz guitar to review, even my husband was excited about it.  My kids have argued over this toy and I know that it will also be a hit with the youth from church.

Paper Jamz guitars are available in six different guitar versions and come with no strings which makes them an air guitar. You can jam out by simply touching the paper surface.  They are battery powered, so you don’t have to worry about an electric cord.  My kids can easily take the guitar outside or to their rooms to jam without being too loud.  There is a built-in speaker and volume control.

The guitar has three modes for jamming: 

1.  Perfect play: play perfect guitar to the 3 built-in songs
2. Rhythm: control the guitar rhythm for each song
3. Freestyle play: play it like a real guitar and create your own songs

Paper Jamz also has an amp and drums that can be purchased separately.

Buying tips:  1)  You should know that this guitar requires 3 AAA batteries and they are not included with the guitar.  That is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. As a mom, I know that kids want to play with something as soon as they get it.  So, if you buy one just be sure you have the batteries ready.  2)  Since there are six different guitars with built-in songs, be sure to read the song list on the back of the guitar so you’ll know which songs you’re getting.

Things I really like about this guitar:  1) battery powered (no cords)   2)  volume control   3)  automatic shut-off (doesn’t waste batteries)  4)  freestyle mode   5)  affordable price

Paper Jamz are available at Walgreens for only $24.95.  Your local Walgreens may have these on display for you to try out.  Since this is a giveaway, we’re offering a $25 gift card to Walgreens so that you can get one of these guitars for yourself.  Give it as a birthday or Christmas gift or save it for yourself.

This giveaway is available to those with a U.S. address. Please leave a comment to enter. Additional entries are available by following me on twitter and/or facebook, promoting this giveaway through stumble upon, twitter, or other social media.

Disclaimer: I was not paid for this review, but was provided with a guitar to try. We used the guitar for about one month before writing the review.

    What a cool way to get kids interested in making music — and one that doesn’t come with the price tag or noise factor of Guitar Hero. Thanks for sharing the review and for the chance to enter!
