Giveaway #703 : Win a Jazwares First Act Ukulele - closed - winner Jackie Howell


 For a few years now, 9-year-old Pierre has been totally fascinated by the full-sized guitar that belongs to his grandad. He loves picking it up whenever we visit and twanging it and trying to get a tune out of it, but it's just too big for him to play properly. When the option came in to review a ukulele from Jazwares First Act range, I knew that this could be a great solution. You can tell from the smile on Pierre's face what he thought of it !


 As you can see from the pictures, ukuleles have a much smaller, more child-friendly size, which is great when you're just learning to play. It has guitar-style tuning gears to let you tune up and stay in tune and nylon strings for that traditional ukulele sound. Pierre started off tuning it by ear, but then his grandad lent him his electronic tuner which he loves playing with using !


It was my birthday at the weekend and Pierre was determined to learn how to play Happy Birthday on his ukulele. I could hear him practising all the time over the days beforehand and, sure enough, he presented an (almost !) faultless rendition on the big day !

The ukulele, also available in white with blue butterflies, is suitable for children aged 6+.It's is available over on the Smyths website for £14.99.

But don't go away - I have good news ! I have a lovely Jazwares First Act Ukulele to give away to a lucky Madhouse Family Reviews reader. The winner will receive one of two designs of ukulele picked at random; either black with blue stars or white with blue butterfly design. Fill in your entries in the Rafflecopter widget below.
