Perfect Harmony

Singing comes as naturally as talking, and children love nothing better than to sing along with their favourite tunes. It gets easier, too, as technology means that cassette recorders and CD players provide the musical accompaniment while children add the dulcet tones. Hong Kong's toy makers, meanwhile, are busy making sure that every note is in perfect harmony.

 

Melody Makers

Sing-along CD players are given a groovy exterior by Sunco (China East) Electronics Ltd. A portable sing-along CD player contains 45-second electronic shock protection, a built-in speaker and a bass boost system. A microphone and headphones complete the sing-along features. A double microphone, sing-along CD player version offers an AM/FM radio and flashing sound level indicators for serious young audiophiles.

Party Time

Playrooms instantly turn into nightclubs with this DJ scratch CD mixer from Goldmen Electronic Co Ltd. The scratch mixer comes with a spinning disco ball, an anti-shock CD player, a cassette recorder, an FM radio and sliding DJ controls for those vital sound effects. A head mike and hand microphone completes the DJ look. Let's get the party started.

Plush Music

Question: When is a plush toy not a plush toy? Answer: When it's actually a radio! QF Int'l Ltd combines its plush toy expertise with its radio-making skills to create soft and cuddly radios. Push the embroidered control buttons found on the plush round or oval footballs and the boombox to automatically tune into a radio station and pump up the volume.

Sing Along

Colourful sing-along musical toys are the speciality of AA Toys Ltd. The firm's front-loading CD player comes with 45-second electronic shock protection for sudden jolts, an LCD screen and two microphones for duets. A cassette player version comes with a record button and two tape holders. Both are CE-approved for three-year-olds and up. Cute musical baby toys, such as a nursery rhyme-playing butterfly, are also available.

Baby Sing Song

Babies can learn the words and tunes to their first songs using this Sing With Me Karaoke unit from Tai Kee Industrial Co Ltd. It comes with a microphone and a selection of changeable songbook cartridges that are sold separately. Apart from karaoke, children can also play back and record. The song list includes all-time nursery favourites such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Are You Sleeping".

Music Centres

Learning is fun with these musical toys from Smart Crown Development Ltd. Babies can pretend to tinkle the ivories of the mini-piano keyboard, while toddlers can learn their ABCs in English and Spanish with the push-button alphabet toy. Meanwhile, a toy notebook computer offers pre-schoolers exposure to early learning in maths and English literacy through games and melodies.
