Music is a big part of babies’ cognitive development and as kids get older they sometimes move away from music and onto other things like sports or technology. Not everyone is musical but it’s so important to try and incorporate some form of music into a toddler’s schedule and the beauty of it all is that it doesn’t matter what type of music you choose! Blipblox is an award-winning synthesizer that allowed kids ages 3 and up to make their own electronic music. Read on to find out all of its incredible functions and be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win one of your own! Kids Can Make their own Electronic Music with Blipblox!
Blipblox is an innovative synthesizer that’s designed for little hands and features large knobs and buttons to allow very young kids to create electronic music in a way that actually sounds like real music! In fact, some of the features are so complex they make the sound come out like real, professional electronic music. This may be due to the Blipblox’s proprietary algorithm that synthesizes completely unique waveforms. In addition, the Blipblox features a multi-color LED light show that’s synchronized to the music in real-time.
For toddlers, the Blipblox is a fun way to learn basic electronic music-making and they enjoy the lights. I received a sample for review and had my kindergartner play with it. I watched as he tried the different buttons and knobs, (without telling him what they’re for) and he was having a blast discovering the different sounds and enjoying the lights. It was fun as a mom watching him discover a brand-new toy that’s so unique and different from other, more run-of-the-mill toys.
My older kids tried to figure out what the buttons were for (instructions are included) and they started noticing patterns. Kids of all ages get exposed to melody, tempo, oscillators, LFO’s, filters, envelopes and amplifiers. They both like to be challenged so it was nice watching them as they were figuring out the different knobs and buttons. Older kids and adults can click here to watch instructional videos. Blipblox can also be connected to external devices at home, such as MIDI keyboards and drum machines.
