Works ok as a toy, not so great as a microphone
on December 27, 2012
I purchased this microphone for my daughter for Christmas. She loves singing, and often uses other objects as if they were a microphone. Looking through amazon, there weren't any greatly reviewed toy microphones or microphone stands except for this one.
We were hoping that it would be a little more microphone, and a little less Dora, but it is pretty heavily geared toward "sing-a-long." There are three main buttons, one for the microphone, and two that start a song or Dora saying. I wish that there were a way to set the microphone to stay on so that she could sing without having to press down the button, because she is still trying to figure out the coordination to do so.
Overall, this is a great product. If it had volume control, and a way to leave the microphone on, or go into "mic-only" mode, it would get 4-5 stars.
