Fisher Price ABC 1-2-3 Sing Along
The ABC 1-2-3 is a toy, no doubt about it, but for toddlers it's hands-down the best "karaoke"-like machine available. The corded mic is small enough for toddlers to be able to get a grip, and the speakers may be tinny, but using the volume control one can make sure that the sound doesn't get so loud that it distorts. Three different "character" buttons allow the child to choose between numbers, shapes, or ABC's, and downloadable content is available from the Fisher-Price website. The USB connection then allows you to upload these extra songs, featuring Dora or Diego, to the unit. It may have a limited appeal and qualifies more as a novelty than a karaoke machine, but it's a winner for the parent who wants to help their toddler develop language and music skills.
