For the singing-est dancing-est, most musical pre-schoolers in the world, there’s no toy that satisfies quite like a playable instrument! With that in mind, Mega Bloks® is super-excited to announce the upcoming release of our newest star – Billy Beats™ Dancing Piano!
Billy Beats is a construction toy, fully compatible with all Mega Bloks First Builders blocks. The blocks can be stored under his red cap, and built up over his keys and on top of his head!
But Billy Beats’ main job is getting his groove on. He has 8 classic preschool songs in his repertoire. Choose the ‘Dance Along’ option and each key your little DJ presses will play a different song. As the song plays, the keys light up and Billy Beats shakes his booty along with the tune! Here’s Billy Beats doing his thing:
Billy Beats knows all of his songs in three styles – with standard piano sounds, barnyard animal sounds and a funky DJ style. These three sound modes can be fully explored by your youngster in the ‘Discover Music’ mode. See what they can come up with!
Along with the included blocks, Billy Beats comes with stickers of sheet music that your child can play on his light-up keyboard. Your little guy or girl can follow along with the sheet music – Billy Beats will dance along as they go!
Another one of the great settings your little guy or girl can choose is ‘Teach me’ – where Billy Beats’ keys will light up in the order of the notes in the song. Your budding musician can follow along, playing the song. If they make a mistake, Billy Beats will giggle; if they get it right, Billy Beats will play a the entire tune over and dance along!
Billy Beats is a funky mix master. There’s no other way to put that. Billy Beats has soul, and rhythm, and keeps the party going! My daughter is almost 2 years old and I can honestly say that she’s never played with a new toy as energetically as she plays with Billy Beats. Here are the two of them in action:
Billy Beats is coming out this Fall and will be available everywhere Mega Bloks are sold.
