Once upon a time I bought my daughter a karaoke machine for Christmas. It was surprisingly hard to find, and the stupid thing broke about half an hour after we gave it to her. This led to my heading to the store the next day to buy her a replacement at full price. (No, I didn’t have a coronary, but it was touch and go there for a little while.)
Since that time, she’s grown, her tastes have changed, and we have plenty of infinitely more intricate karaoke games she can play on the Wii. But whenever she has friends over… that karaoke machine still gets a pretty good workout. There’s something about a bunch of girls and a microphone or two.
I’m not going to tell you what I ended up spending on ours (seeing as how I had to buy it twice, and not on sale the second time time). But I will tell you that if you have even an inkling of an idea to pick up a karaoke machine, you could do a lot worse than this disco light karaoke machine at Buy.com, currently just $29.99 shipped. That’s basically the model we have (except that ours doesn’t have the cool lights), and we paid a lot more. A lot more.
No, no, I’m fine. There’s just… umm… something in my eye.
The cool lights are evil (says she who’s had to leave several parties because the disco lights were triggering her migraines). Eeeeeevil. So be glad yours doesn’t have them.
Which Wii karaoke games does Chickadee like? We have Boogie and Rock Band 2, like them both.
