My kids have always preferred creative toys. From the earliest age, they have been drawn to toys that they can put together and take apart and really see how they work. The kind of toys that don’t have just one specific way to play with them, and instead allow you to experiment. So, we were thrilled when we first saw the Music Studio Pack from Tech Will Save Us.
Consisting of the Electro Guitar Kit, the Synth Wave Kit, and the Record & Remix Kit, the Music Studio Pack really checks a lot of boxes for us. For one, it’s a musical toy, which we always say yes to. For another, it is expandable and grows with your child depending on what stage they are at. And, remember that bit about experimenting and allowing your kids to get creative? This Music Studio Pack excels at all of this and more.
These kits seem like toys at first glance with their bright colors and cardboard housings. But, these are real musical tools that kids can utilize to learn the basics of music, layering, and even a bit about musical theory. As you can imagine, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it and see what kind of musical group we could assemble.
Everything was super easy to put together, but still fun and left us feeling like we’d accomplished something just by assembling them. Since the kit comes with only basic instructions and a download QR code, and we didn’t have our tablet handy, the kids got to put them together by trial and error. Thankfully, there was very little in the “error” column, because with these kits anything goes!
Even though this may look like a instruction-less nightmare, the kit was easy to build and then to customize for the perfect sound. It was mere minutes until the kids were happily jamming away on the guitar and fine tuning the amp and pickup.
I had thought that the Electro Guitar was going to be the toy that all the kids fought over, but what I found was that every kit is so cool in its own way that everyone wants a turn at all of them. That makes it perfect for families, or for groups and playdates because they are all so fun to play with. And, the bonus is that these kits don’t have to be played with as a set – groups can still play with one kit together, as my children have done numerous times.
