At one inch thick, Paper Jamz guitars from Wowwee don’t have any actual strings. They use an innovative and proprietary that allows you to strum the non-existent strings to produce one of three pre-loaded licensed tracks. Each of the available 6 guitars will have 3 modes of play: Perfect Play (just strum along), Rhythm Mode (you control the tempo), and FreeStyle Mode (Just go crazy with the track).
I’m thinking this is going to appeal to the pre-Guitar Hero crowd or a precursor to a child actually learning an instrument. Launching around July or August, Paper Jamz will be priced at around $25 for each guitar. Would you buy one of these for your kid?
