TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Kids can sound like their favorite pop stars with the Paper Jamz Pro Series Mics. These microphones (There are three different styles to choose from.) are designed to aid kids' singing. There are several different effects: Perfect Pitch keeps you in tune, Chorus multiplies your voice to add depth, Auto Vibrato adds dramatic effect to your voice, Melody Match tunes your voice so you sing perfect melody, and Auto Harmony makes it sound like your singing a duet. The Pro Series Mics come with two pre-loaded songs, but you can download your own music. Go to PaperJamzPro.com and download the app to your Mac or PC. Import songs from your computer into the app. Then sync the songs to the mic by connecting it to your computer via the included USB cable. Each microphone comes with an amp.
Why It’s Fun
This is a great toy for kids who are into music, singing, and performing. You don't have to be a great singer or have back-up singers to use the Pro Series Mics. Just add the vocal effects to help you stay on pitch or make it sound like you've got a singing partner right there with you.
This isn't a tool to teach kids how to sing. It's a fun karaoke-type toy that will have kids (and adults) singing along to their favorite songs and pretending to be rock stars.
Who It’s For
Paper Jamz Pro Series Mics are for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
It takes about 30 minutes to download the Paper Jamz app and sync your songs to the microphone.
The Pro Series Mics require four AA batteries, which are not included.
