Singing has always been a popular pastime and thanks to popular TV talent shows, the idea of being a star has also taken root in children's imaginations. The Kidi Super Star from VTech has a really attractive design and unlike many musical toys it is actually designed for slightly older children of six and over.
What we loved about this was the fact that there were so many different functions and different ways to play with the toy. You can use it as a simple microphone, but you can also add some of the built-in voice effects, turn down the volume of the voice (a popular choice we feel sure) and play games. There's also lighting attached to this so you can create a mini disco effect in front of the microphone.
Record was also a popular feature, allowing children to capture their best moments and then play back their tracks. Children loved this and played with it for hours on end.
What our reviewers said: "I've got the X Factor!", "I love that I can record myself and then listen to the song".
