Did you know this about the PAPER JAMZ Guitars for kids??

That it says it is for 8 year olds on up, BUT the songs on there have offensive curse words? Yep, sure found that out the hard way!

Depending on which SERIES you get, and if you do not know the songs....look out! My son had the Series 2, style 11 guitar. 

Style 11 image 1 And the one song, INVINCIBLE says the M--F'r word! 

Regardless of the age requirements being 8 years old and up, my son is 6 years old! I wouldn't want ANY child to hear such words on their guitars!

Needless to say I wrote the company as well as telling a local TV station about it in case they wanted to bring it to the attention of their viewers. 

So let other parents know to look up the songs listed on the guitar on YOU TUBE or and check out what the lyrics say! Or they will get an earfull like I did!

  • Very interesting. My kids don't know about those, and I will likely never buy them, but now I'm curious because on Black Friday I saw our school principal's wife shopping with their son (10 yrs old) and he was picking one out...hmm......!

  • The curse words are not said on the guitar itself so I'm not worried that the "original" does. So long as it's not said on the paper jam (and it's not) then I'm ok with this and my son will continue to play with his.
