ZURU Tube Superstar Review and Toy Giveaway For Young Stars In The Making!

All kids wanna be superstars and with ZURU's latest gadget toy for young up-and-comings - the Tube Superstar, their dreams can finally get underway! We were lucky enough to be sent this fab tech-toy to road test and it's been a big hit with our three youngest kids aged 5, 10 and 12. (Even mum wants a go!)

Our two younger sons in particular, have been fiddling about with vlogs and YouTube channels of their own for some time now. Like many kids nowadays, they've been inspired by the fun, fame and popularity along with their friends, that comes with the territory. From what I have observed, they're pretty good at selling themselves on-screen too! Whether it's a love of selfies, singing or just fooling around on camera, kids adore watching themselves and other children in videos.

Consider a toy for kids that makes light work of the vlogging process...

If you're not so keen on having your kids online, then there's no need to worry with the ZURU Tube Superstar. Kids can simply play about making recordings of themselves and their interests, and then have a giggle with their friends and family as they watch them on playback via the Tube Superstar app. They can even add title pages to their videos to give them a polished and professional look.

The ZURU Tube Superstar lets kids try their craft on camera to show off their very own unboxing videos, unique hobbies and stellar collections, talents or whatever.

The ZURU Tube Superstar works just by plugging in a smartphone (not supplied with this toy), and downloading the fun, free app. With additional built-in features within the microphone (a QR code reader) for instant effects, and more options available within the app itself, the Tube Superstar is guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment.

This toy is recommended for ages 6 plus and consists of an easy to use microphone, pole and adjustable smart phone holder. It's an all-in-one contraption which expertly connects a mobile phone at a perfect distance for filming selfie-style vids.

For easy editing, there's a QR Code reader built into the microphone which kids can use during filming, to conduct instant edits and special effects. With a little twist to change the code, the app will automatically apply exciting effects such as filters and cute stickers.

A very easy to use app.

To setup the ZURU Tube Superstar you need to first download the app which is available at the App Store and on Google Play. (A special code is provided with the instruction guide which grants you access to the app.) It's impressively simple to understand and use the options in the app itself and with most kids being highly tech-enabled these days, they tend to pick it all up at the speed of light.

Clamp in your smartphone into the device and plug the Tube Superstar's jack mic into your phone
to give sharp sound recordings.

Prior to launching into the fun of film making, choose one of three modes available in the app. There's the Challenge mode for showdown fun between two players, the How To mode geared to producing entertaining and educational videos, as well as the Performance mode - by far the most popular mode in these parts.

Talk, sing and dance your way to fame!
There are in-app tutorials to keep kids up-to-speed and inspire their creativity too. Add in the 50 plus filters and animations feature, and kids are literally blown-away by their own professional results. We think this toy is a great way to teach children about effective public speaking as they can practice and watch themselves on playback, all the while honing-in on the importance of their own body language, pronunciation and intonation.

This is a super-fun tech toy and it's bound to be extremely popular this Christmas. We highly recommend the fun and suggest you keep this one in mind for your kids this Christmas. RRP $34.99. Find this in all good toy stores, department stores and online.

  15. There is just so MUCH available for kids these days - sometimes I wonder how we survived with so little! :)

  16. For some reason my daughter has an obsession with meeting Simon Cowell so I reckon winning this prize may open up that avenue for her but she needs a bit more practice on the microphone before I let her loose on Australia's Got Talent! (Charlotte Black)

  17. Wow, I know some grandkids who would love that too. Mind you I now have one who is a DJ &music producer who played at Defqon in Sydney recently. He has been doing this underage since 2016 so lucky his mum is willing to attend as his chaperone.

    Thank you for linking up for #LifeThisWeek. The optional prompt next is: 39/52. Last Thing I Bought. 24/9/18. Denyse

  18. Oh gosh my girls would have fun with this! I can only think of the abundance of videos that would be on my phone, not to mention me not being able to use my phone, because they would hog it to play this. It all about vlogs and you tubers right now isn't it. My girls love watching you tubers! I don't get the attraction at all lol

  19. I would love to win it for my 2 kids .. a 7 years old girl and her Choir 5 years old boy :)
