7 Best Gifts for Kid Guitar Players

Dressed up as Bowie for Halloween, watched SpongeBob jamming out with Patrick, wants to be just like rocker Mommy or can’t get enough of Daddy’s tunes – whatever the reason, you now have a little kid guitar player in your hands. And even rockstars write Santa letters from time to time. So what should you get a little kid guitar player?

We’ve got your back. Below are what we consider the 7 best gifts for kid guitar players. Better start ‘em young!

1. Loog Guitar

Let’s just get this one out of the way – of course we think the Loog Guitar is THE best gift for kid guitar players, especially if they’re still brimming with potential. Call us biased, but its narrow neck and three strings makes learning to play guitar easy peasy. Plus, continuing to learn is a breeze when you’re already playing ENTIRE songs on day one thanks to its Chord Flashcards and awesome iOS and Android App.

So go ahead and start a rock band with your little future lead guitarist. Just think of the places you’ll tour, the songs you’ll perform and the fun you’ll have – right there in your living room!

It’s a good read that gives you a sense of what’s involved in running a Kickstarter campaign for a design project. Enjoy!
