Review: Baby Jamz Products + Giveaway!

Written on March 17, 2008 by Kevin.

**Full Disclosure** I am writing this review after receiving these sample products from the TeamMom(yes, I do realize I am not a mom) website.

Welcome the Baby Jamz toy products. Toys for kids who simply love hip-hop music and the butchering of classics. When I first heard that I was going to be have a chance to sample a couple new products I was excited but was soon disappointed with what came next. I was to sample and review a couple of the Baby Jamz toy products. The first thing I did was hunt down exactly what I was going to receive. I read over numerous reviews and was quite surprised to hear such great words. Kids and adults both loved these products and the twist on classic nursery rhymes.

Baby Jamz Boom Box Shape Sorter ($14.76)
This was the first toy that we removed from the box after opening it. With a quick bit of confusion, I process what is in front of me. A boom box, I guess. This toy plays music when your child inserts the colored shapes into their appropriate slot. Additional buttons on the right allow your child to mix in extra sounds as to possibly make it sound like you are a DJ of some type. I think I had the most fun with this toy simply by annoying my wife with my super slick DJ'ing skills. There is nothing like repeating one of the 3 nursery songs over and over again. This toy is designed for 6+ months so of course Rylan mastered it with his eyes closed. Kaitlyn doesn't seem too interested in it. The blocks do fall out quite easily so travelling with this would likely be difficult.

Baby Jamz Music Crew ($4.88)
I am trying to hold back the real words that are going through my head when I think of this toy. I'll start off and just say that this toy too is meant to be a boom box. Small plastic characters are placed on top and music is then played. Music can be played despite the characters by pushing another button. Why exactly there are two ways to start the music is unknown to me. The characters fall off, alot. They are held in with the slightest bit of pressure which simply doesn't work. Now my favorite(most annoying) thing about this toy is the music that comes with it. Our boom box came with the classic nursery song of "Hush Little Baby" after it had been eaten by a walrus, processed and then given back to you on a plate. Let me give you a short bit of how they changed the song.

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's going to buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don't sing,
Mama's going to buy you some new bling bling.
so shhhh
Be quite, be be be quiet
so shhhh
Be quite, be be be quiet

Did they honestly just butcher one of the most well known nursery songs and include the word bling in doing so? I believe they did. Everyone that I have played the song too just happens to agree. If I had to price this item, it would be closer to half of what it currently is at $4.88. This is very much a throw away toy.

Baby Jamz CD, Nursery Rhymes Volume 1 ($10.47) I can't bear to open and listen to this CD. They have a sample button which gives you small taste of what is on the CD and we just can't do it. What is on the CD you may ask? Well they are classic children songs redone into a hip-hop version. Read below on how you can win this if you feel so daring.

So to sum things up, these are certainly toys that I am glad that I got to sample rather than buy and then kick myself later about. Our children do not listen to many of the classic nursery rhymes so we thought that this may be a good chance to introduce them to it but we will graciously pass. Baby Jamz was created by the father and sister of Beyonce Knowles and they don't like to hide that from you. I told my wife that I feel bad when Solange Knowles has a kid of her own and then she informed me that she already has a kid and this of course is where the idea to these toys likely came from. These toys feel and look cheap but of course their prices would possibly say otherwise. Just below, there is a small commercial(?) that BabyJamz seems to have put up on YouTube. While they do not go into detail about the toys, they atleast give a good impression of what the toys are about.

** For the parent's who are actually interested in this toy, we did check over a bit of each of the toys and found no lead. (This is not 100% guaranteed however)

The rules are simple, if you want the Baby Jamz CD, just write a short comment saying so. I don't want to drag this contest on any more than necessary so I will wrap it up on March 23rd at 11:59pm PST. I will randomly choose a winner and you will be contacted shortly after.

The lucky winner of the Baby Jams CD is comment number #8, Ford. I will be in contact with you shortly. Thanks everyone for participating.


We could definitely use some new music!

I'm a teacher, and think this might be useful for discussing different types/styles of music with my kids. (after your less than stellar review, I prolly won't be ripping it to my ipod or anything tho!)
