Voice Rockrz Mic {Review}

Voice Rockrz logoI think that there are some personas that all children love to imitate. Princesses, superheroes, teachers, firefighters... there's just something about pretending to be someone else that is always exciting and fun.

And one that is especially enjoyable? Being a rock star. Who hasn't wanted to rock out before?

But when it comes to really being transformed into a performing, spotlight-grabbing rocker, it's all about the accessories. You can't really get into it without having a great mic to set the stage, right?

Thanks to the well-known musical instrument company First Act, kids are now able to do just that with their innovative, interactive, voice-transforming microphone, the Voice Rockrz Mic.

Voice Rockrz MicGeared towards children ages four and up, the Voice Rockrz Mic is set to hit store shelves nationwide this fall, just in time for the new season of Glee, the premiere of The X Factor and of course, the holiday shopping season.

Much more than just a play microphone, the Voice Rockrz Mic transforms any child from feeling as though they're singing in their living room to jamming in a performance on stage. Whether you're hosting Family Karaoke night, a sleepover, a birthday party, or kids are just hanging out after school with friends, the Voice Rockrz Mic is sure to be a hit.

Voice Rockrz reviewConsidering that Big Sister E and Little Sister B are pretty sure that they are secretly rock stars, I knew that they would be excited about having a way to show that off with this fun microphone.

Voice Rockrz Mic reviewWith its three AAA batteries included and installed, the Voice Rockrz Mic was ready to go in about a minute. Considering that all that is required is a place to perform and a love for fun, we were ready to get our party started right away!

What sets the Voice Rockrz Mic apart from other children’s microphones is that its creator is First Act, the prominent musical instrument company that creates instruments for artists such as Adam Levine and Kelly Clarkson. Therefore, First Act sets out to also create musical instruments that going to give children more of a real-life experience... with a touch of magic thrown in!

This interactive microphone has the ability to change a child's voice as they perform simply by tapping the included accessories - the ring and bracelet - on the Mic's target zone (an actual target symbol on the back that says Tap Here).

It's just that simple! Just by putting on the accessories and easily tapping them on the target, kids can feel like they sound like stars with the resulting voice effects:
  • Hi-Note voice effect: Tap the ring against the mic to bump your voice a whole two octaves higher!
  • Echo-Tastic voice effect: Tap the bracelet to the mic to give your voice an echo that really lasts!
  • Robot-Riffic voice effect: Tap both the ring and the bracelet in succession to sound like an Intergalactic Robo-Rockr!
The FX button also provides fun additions to any performance with sound effects like audience applause or a crescendo-ing drum roll... all that is left to add is music. The Voice Rockrz Mic makes it easy to jam to your favorite tunes, as you can plug any MP3 player right into the jack on the side. All that is left is to get into character and start singing along! I just need to find a rock star or two around...

We've had a lot of fun with the Voice Rockrz Mic since its arrival and my little rockers haven't at all grown tired of being able to be in the spotlight! I appreciate how easy it is to turn on and use this microphone and that the uniqueness of the voice effects keeps my kids coming back for more.

I'm never quite sure what they'll do next, but I do know that they'll have fun doing it...

More than a microphone, the Voice Rockrz Mic is a performance transformer that enables kids to turn a session of make believe into an entertaining experience for everyone involved. I have no doubt that we will continue to use this Mic as the girls get older and that they and their friends will have a blast rocking out!

Available in-store and online with a retail price of $24.99, more information about the Voice Rockrz Mic can be found on their website as well as on Facebook and Twitter. If you have a young rocker in your life, this would make a great birthday present, addition to a Halloween costume, upcoming holiday gift or just for fun!

(Other than the Voice Rockrz Mic that I was sent by First Act to facilitate my review, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this company and this fun product.)
