Toy WTF: Sing-A-Ma-Jig

I can’t decide if I love or hate this toy I noticed at Toys R Us lately.

Sing-A-Ma-Jigs are kind of cute. Originally, I considered buying one as a gift, but then I tried to figure out what songs they sang when you squeezed them. I can’t identify 90% of what they are singing, and I know a lot of songs. What’s the point of having a little doll sing the notes to a song you don’t know? The ones I saw at the store had several modes. The only song I was able to identify was “Yankee Doodle”. I tried really hard to figure out the rest, but it just wasn’t happening.

When they move, they are either freaky or super cute. I can’t decide which, but lean toward freaky. Their mouths become perfect little o’s and then shut back up again. They can bite you if you put your finger in, though it probably won’t hurt.

I mean, these things are just bizarre. They are really cute, but mostly just make noise and have freakish mouths. I either want one or never want to see one again. I can’t decide which.

  1. That has got to be the most BIZARRE toy I’ve EVER seen. Definitely WTF worthy.

    You should have asked me about them. They were the hot toy this past Christmas. Apparently, if you get 2 or 3 of them together they will start to harmonize. I thought that was pretty stinking cool and thought about buying a few for myself and a few for the girls…

    My cousin sent us the purple one that sings “Clementine” aka Oh my darling…. anyway it is creepy. Andy calls it the bj doll. I like to stick a binky in it’s mouth when it sings. :-) Max calls it a bear. I almost though about buying another one to have two but just could not do it.
