The KIDdesigns brand occupied a large space at the Toy Fair, where among the many products showcased was the DreamWorks Trolls World Tour DJ Trollex Party Mixer (for ages three and above), loaded with built-in music, speech and sound effects that enable kids to mix their own music ($39.99).
A spinning turntable enables kids to make a “scratch” effect while they mix tunes as interactive lights glow to the beat. The Party Mixer also enables budding DJs to record their performances by plugging in their own MP3 players. There are several beat rhythms, musical loops, and character speech options to choose from, giving kids lots of leeway to edit and mix their own creations; volume and tempo sliders allow for the raising and lowering of both sound and speed.
Also on view: the Disney Frozen II Model XX-673 Bluetooth Karaoke Machine, which accepts CDG (CD+Graphics) discs and produces a multi-colored LED light show ($79.99). It also is equipped with a convenient AUX-in jack for connection to external devices.
