Most children have a musical streak, so why not bring out your child’s inner rock star with this cool guitar. The B Woofer Guitar plays 20 familiar songs and nine “doggie ditties.” It has realistic strings that let your little musician play like a real rock star. It’s even smart enough to turn itself off to save on those expensive batteries.
