Every year at this time, parents like us search for the hottest toys of the season to get for our children. I am frequently approached to do product reviews for a wide spectrum of toys, and sometimes, I decline these offers right away for they just don't look like anything I would be interested in.
I have to admit that the I Am T-Pain Mic from JAKKS Pacific, Inc. was a toy that fell into this category, but after some debate, I decided to review it anyway. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID! This toy is a total blast and now I definitely see why it made Kmart's Fun Ambassador Rico Rodriguez's Fab 15 Toys list for the holidays. Keep reading to learn more and see my daughter in action with it!
Encourage your budding rapper to perfect their craft with this I Am T-Pain Mic from JAKKS Pacific, Inc. This item is battery operated (3 "AAA" batteries included), so your little one can freestyle or rap along with their favorite artist anywhere. It is designed for children ages 7 years old and up, but I can testify personally that younger children will find this microphone equally enjoyable without even knowing who T-Pain is.
I mentioned already that the I Am T-Pain Mic was one of Rico Rodriguez's Fab 15 toys for the holiday season. In case you're curious to see what other toys were selected, watch the video link below:
The I Am T-Pain Mic is truly a fun and entertaining children's microphone with a ton of features that make it worth the money. The mic comes with three different original beats that can be played in the background while you sing, it is mp3 compatible and offers recording capabilities of 3 minutes in length.
You can then play back your recording or even download and share it on your computer, thanks to the built in USB connection at the bottom of the microphone. There's even a built-in speaker so that your voice and music broadcast loud and clear.
Of course, the best part of the I Am T-Pain Mic is the ability to transform your voice into the synthesized voice of T-Pain himself. If you're a fan of hip hop or pop music, you're definitely aware of the voice synthesizer trend prevalent in most songs today. Now, with the I Am T-Pain Mic, your child can push the T-Pain Effect button to instantly transform their voice into the synthesized version! As you can see from my daughter's demonstration below, even a two-year old can enjoy this microphone while singing their favorite nursery rhymes:
I loved how it was so easy to record and download the songs your children sing with the I Am T-Pain Mic. I just plugged it into my laptop and I was able to download the following sound clip which is both silly and cute and illustrates just how good the T-Pain Effect works when the button is pushed while your child sings a song:
I am so glad that I decided to review the I Am T-Pain Mic, for Riley absolutely loves singing and performing with it. Even her father and I get into the act occasionally and bust out "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" to one of the original hip hop beats included with this microphone. If you have a child ages 3 years old and up who loves to sing, dance and perform for you, then I highly recommend the I Am T-Pain Mic!
