Holiday Gift Ideas -- WrapStar Mic from First Act Discovery (Review and Flash Giveaway)

Closed.  Congrats to Sandra J.

"First Act Discovery is excited to debut the award-winning WrapStar Microphone, the first mic you can bend and twist.  Available at retailers nationwide, the WrapStar Mic offers three feet of bendability so everyone can get wrapped up in the fun.  The Mic is offered in multiple colors, each with unique silly sound effects for endless creative possibilities.

"Kids love to sing and perform, and are inspired by extremely popular TV shows such as The Voice, The X Factor, and Glee. With the WrapStar Microphone, our goal is to provide kids with a new and unexpected way to put on a show," said Ilissa Schild, Product Manager for WrapStar. "The WrapStar Mic is an innovative toy, giving kids new levels of creative freedom to express themselves."
Kids are encouraged to shape the Mic into new and inventive shapes – a hat, an animal, a pair of glasses, a bracelet, an instrument!  The WrapStar Mic has a soft, moldable patent-pending design for the perfect amount of flexibility.  For its ability to foster creativity, movement, and self-expression, the WrapStar Mic has already been recognized by Dr. Toy as one of the Top 100 Toys of 2012 as well as one of the 10 Best Active Toys of the same year.
Twist it, bend it, shape it like you like, show 'em who you are with the WrapStar Mic! The WrapStar Mic is for kids 4+ and available for $19.99; requires one "AA" battery, not included."

My Thoughts:

I was sent a WrapStar mic to review and found this award-winning microphone to be a hit amongst parents and children.  I showed off the WrapStar mic to family and friends who joined us for dessert on Thanksgiving, and we ended up having a mini karaoke party in the living room.  You can't help but love to sing, after seeing popular sing off shows on television shows nowadays.  Now, mind you, many of the people who grabbed the WrapStar mic will not be landing a recording contract any time soon, they all had a blast adding silly sound effects, along with their voices.

Being able to twist, bend and mold the 3-foot long mic makes it even more fun.  Little ones had a blast wearing the mic as glasses, while adults were finally able to command the stage (well, at least the living room floor) by wrapping this mic around this wrists and fist pumping in the air, as they sang along to classics like "I Love Rock and Rock" and "We Will Rock You." :-)  Our oldest daughter loved hearing herself echo through the mic, as she made "meow meow" sounds and sang kid favorites like "Twinkle Twinkle" and "I Love You."

So, if you are looking for a fun way to add more life into your family gatherings this upcoming holiday season, or have the next top singer in your house, why not pick up the WrapStar?  Everyone who takes to the mic will have fun and come out of their shells.:-)


You can pick up the WrapStar microphone at Toys R Us, Kmart and Walmart for only $19.99 or less.
