They look good and if you want to fill some time with your kids in the long holidays, the Loog vintage-style electric guitars for kids might well be fit the bill on that front too.
These are not toys. Oh no. These are real guitars, made of wood designed for children. But not quite your average guitar. The look is certainly distinctive, but so is the entire concept.
First up, this is a small-size, three-string guitar and a guitar you have to build yourself. According to Loog, that’s because building the guitar creates ‘a first sense of ownership and accomplishment’ and creates a bond between child and instrument. It should only take 15 minutes or so with your help.
Each guitar comes with an instruction book with songs by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and more, as well as an app with a tuner, a monkey drummer and video lessons.
Finally, the super-hip Third Man Records has its own version, which is available directly from them for $150.
