Kid Size Guitar




For a look-how-great-your-new-house-is surprise for the kids, we gave them a child-size guitar. They LOVE it. It sits next to Ben Blair's guitar and in the evenings we can get a little bit of a jam session going on.

The kid guitar is from First Act. It comes with these handy little cards you can slide beneath the strings to help you learn and memorize the chords. Such a great kid gift! And the price (under $30) seems so reasonable to me for a pretty little instrument.

I love that. Would make a perfect kid's birthday gift as well.

We have the First Act drum set and it is so cute and little and rarely bugs me. Mostly I love seeing everyone playing them. Then they get out the electric keyboard and jam together. So creative and cute. The guitar looks beautiful.

what a great idea for your kids! thanks for passing this on. my 4-year-old has been begging to learn to play the ukulele (??of all things??) so i think we may need a guitar some time in our future.

Rockin'. My sister, now almost a teenager, has played my brother's guitar on and off for the last five years, and as I recall he got her a small one to begin with.

My little brother shipped us his electric, acoustic, and bass guitar (plus an awesome amp) last year. It only made sense to go and buy the girls a guitar so they could "play" along. We got the pink one. Let me tell you, there is nothing cuter than the little ones trying to strum along to a song. Even more fun, whomever isn't playing the guitar, uses the guitar stand as a pretend microphone.

Great idea! My youngest son started out with one of these a couple of years ago. He's 8 now and has gotten his first 'real' guitar and has started lessons. Coming from a very musical family has taught me the fun and advantages to learning to play!! Happy playing and listening!

We got these for our boys a couple of years ago. I painted them with flames and each of their initials (so they wouldn't get them mixed up - even though they're exactly the same!) They loved them!

Ne'Ne' & Grandaddy gave Porter one for his 7th birthday and then Santa brought him a camo electric guitar for "when he really needs to jam"! Too cute and hours of entertainment... LOVE IT! Will see if there is a way to share his photo with you! Joy - Jennifer

Do you know if they have chord cards for grown-ups? I didn't see any...

Those chord remembering cards are a great idea! I wonder if they stay in place though?
