Review: KidzLane Sing-A-Long CD & MP3 Player with Dual Microphones
The KidzLane Sing-A-Long CD and MP3 Player with Dual Microphones is such a fun product and both of my kids are having fun with it.. It's a lot bigger of a toy than it looks in the pictures on Amazon. Look at my picture of my preschool son holding it to get an idea of the size. My 3rd grade daughter was worried it was going to be tiny and be too much like a toy, but it is not. The kids have been having a blast playing with it.
It comes with 2 microphones so that 2 kids can sing at the same time and do a duet. They can sing with the music or without. My son seems to have a good time just talking in it to hear what his voice sounds like. There are volume controls on it for both the music and the microphones so you have pretty good control over how loud it can get and it can get pretty loud. Each microphone also has it's own on/off switch. The buttons are big and easy to press which is great for little fingers that are still working on fine motor skills.
It does take 6 C batteries, but there is a spot that you can plug in a DC cord (not included) if you don't want to use batteries. It also has an USB port that you can plug a drive in to. There is also a Line In Jack that you can use and plug headphones or something else in to and does come with a Line-In cord to run from the CD player to your smartphone or mp3 player.
I really like the portable feature of this toy and the fact that it has 2 microphones so that the kids can play with it together.

Check out my son demonstrating how to use the product, although he sounds a bit muffled because he has the microphone right on his mouth and if you hold it away from your mouth a little bit it sounds better.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
