It's Summer vacation for plenty of kids out there, and so they're probably all sitting around, playing their video games, or whatever else their parents aren't all too fond of. So, what do you do when you need to give them something to entertain themselves for hours on end? You give them clothes that can do the job for you, of course! Introducing the Kids Electronic Guitar and Drum Kit Shirts, which are far more feature-packed than they probably need to be.

Brought to you by ThinkGeek, these are the kid versions of the already popular electronic instrument shirts. Designed to let people "ROCK OUT!" as the press release says, these shirts aren't designed to play pre-canned musical riffs. In point of fact, they're designed to be real musical instruments, to allow kids to actually play the instrument. It even comes with its own mini-amp, which can be hung from your belt, or pants, or whatever else you need it to. Each button on the neck of the guitar plays a major chord, which makes it simple and easy to crank out songs like “Smoke on the Water” and “I Love Rock n’ Roll”. Since all the chords have been recorded on a real electric guitar, the sound that is created is truly authentic. The included magnetic pick allows you to strum just like you would on an actual guitar.

The same goes for the drum kit as well. While it may be more of a technological marvel to play a guitar on your shirt, we can see plenty of kids beating their chest in hopes of cranking out the next best rock jam. Both styles of shirts come with their own cleaning instructions, so if you do get one, make sure to read those. Oh, and if you want to buy one? You'll have to head over to ThinkGeek's website, and order one for $29.99.

Press Release:

FAIRFAX, VA – June 17, 2010 – ThinkGeek, a Geeknet (Nasdaq: LNUX) company, today announced the release of the kid versions of their popular Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt and Electronic Drum Kit Shirt. The geniuses at ThinkGeek Labs know that there is no age limit to being a Rock God, so they created these interactive shirts to give the youngest of rock and roll dreamers the ability to ROCK OUT!

The Kids Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt is NOT a toy that plays pre-canned musical riffs, it’s a real musical instrument that allows you to play your favorite songs and sound great doing it. With its included mini amp that attaches to any belt, any kid can play classic rock songs for their friends and family. Plus, they can play with precision due to the shirt’s ingenious technology.

Each button on the neck of the guitar plays a major chord, which makes it simple and easy to crank out songs like “Smoke on the Water” and “I Love Rock n’ Roll”. Since all the chords have been recorded on a real electric guitar, the sound that is created is truly authentic. The included magnetic pick allows you to strum just like you would on an actual guitar.

The Kids Electronic Drum Kit Shirt is NOT just a picture of a drum kit on a t-shirt. It’s a fully functional and actual playable drum kit with 7 different drums. Each of the seven drums has a different and distinct sound. Hit the drums on the shirt with your finger and it plays the beat through a built-in embedded speaker.

Both the Kids Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt and the Kids Electronic Drum Kit Shirt come in small (28” chest, 43–55lbs.), medium (30” chest, 56-73lbs.) and large (32” chest, 74–100lbs.).
