Jammin Draw Music Art Toy
A great toy for those long drives.
This keyboard and easel combination offers children a creative leap between two art forms: drawing and music composition. The idea is to place a piece of paper on the drawing pad (it can be a blank sheet or one of the coloring book pictures included), turn on the music pad, and compose original music as the pressure from the moving markers magically projects an electronic tune. All the while, the keyboard plays an inspiring background melody. Young artists can choose from a variety of musical styles, including country, classical, rock, world music, and techno. Artists can even hear their spontaneous compositions using the playback button, and recorded songs stay in the memory banks even after the power is turned off. This toy is not as complicated as it may seem. In fact, it's an easy and playful way for children to channel their aural and visual senses into an inventive activity. The set comes with a musical pad, three felt-tipped markers, and drawing paper.
