I think not knowing the words to the songs at first made them shy away from playing with it, but once they discovered the cheering button they were hooked. Whether they sang with it or not, they would take turns hitting the cheering button, laugh and take a bow.
The boys didn't end up playing with the included autograph book and pen, but they loved putting on the VIP pass when it was their turn for the microphone and singing along. It was like a requirement. You have the mike? You wear the VIP pass.
They also discovered that they could record anything they wanted, so they could sing along and record with their favorite Kidz Bop cd's and not just the songs that were already loaded on the microphone, making for even more fun.
In addition to recording other songs, they even started recording conversations going on in other rooms... so that got a little dangerous. My little spies.
Overall, this is definitely a fun toy... and it makes a great addition to the drum set, guitars and stand up microphone we have in the basement. I will have the next Jonas Brothers yet!
