Somewhere over the rainbow, we decided to create the perfect little ukulele for kids and beginners. Compatible with the Loog App, it also comes bundled with flashcards and the potential of a life-long love for music.
- All-wood ukulele, perfect for beginners all ages!
- Size: Soprano (length: 21.5" / scale: 13.6")
- Includes flashcards with ukulele chord diagrams
- Fits the Loog Mini Gig Bag, Stand, Strap and Wall Hanger
- Works with the Loog Guitar app, including the Magic Mirror feature which shows you how to form chords through Augmented Reality
Why We Made This
We offer what we (and others) think is the best guitar for children. But it is true that there are many other options, some costing much less than a Loog. So why Loog? Most guitars for kids are simply cheap, scaled-down copies of a standard guitar. And because they have six strings anyway, the neck is still too wide for a child to play comfortably - let alone easily. Plus, cheap guitars tend to be cheaply made. It makes sense to avoid spending a fortune on a beginner's instrument, but by going with really bad quality, chances are your kid won’t feel engaged enough to play.
So what about ukuleles? Ukuleles are great - if what you want is a ukulele. The problem is that many people end up buying a ukulele because what they want is a small, portable, easy-to-play guitar. And if that’s what you want, we think a Loog is better suited for you.
Last but not least, when you get a Loog, you get more than just a guitar: you get an instrument bundled with a learning app, flashcards and video lessons. So when it comes down to value, Loog Guitars are also a better option.

Can I play ANY song on a 3-string guitar?
Yes. In fact, a regular chord in a standard 6-string guitar is usually comprised of no more than 3 notes. Loog Guitars allow you to play real chords and any song. It will not sound as full as if it were played with a high-end, concert guitar, but because of that same reason it provides a more approachable experience; more suitable for kids and beginners.
If I learn to play a Loog Guitar, can I then use those learnings to play a regular 6-string guitar?
Yes, playing a Loog is not entirely different from playing a traditional guitar, it is just simpler. Since we use the same first three strings -and tuning- of a six-string guitar, everything you learn on a Loog can later be applied on a standard guitar. The transition is natural and seamless. Likewise, you can buy books or go online to find the chords to your favorite songs, and use those same chord-tabs meant for six-string guitars to play on your Loog. You just need to pay attention to the finger-placement on the first three strings and simply ignore the other ones!
What is the minimum age recommendation for Loog Guitars?
We recommend the Loog Mini for children 3 and up, the Loog Pro for kids 6 and up, and the Loog Pro VI for kids 9 and up.
Is The Loog Guitar only for kids?
Absolutely not. We designed them for kids, but even the Loog Mini is certainly suitable for just anybody who likes to play guitar. We count parents, grandparents and even pro guitarists as some of our most loyal customers.
How do you tune a Loog Guitar?
Quick answer: GBE, from low to high.
Loog Guitars use the same first three strings -and tuning- of a six-string guitar. This is why everything you learn on a Loog can later be applied on a standard guitar.
Now, Loog Guitars are all about exploration, so you can also use other string-configurations and tuning if you want to: Open A, Open G… whatever works for you.
Do you offer a left-handed Loog?
Not yet, sorry. We have a few lefties on our team and they simply flip the order of the strings, just like Hendrix did. Worked great for him and works quite well for them too :)
Should a beginner start with the acoustic model first and only then move to an Electric Loog?
Not really. In fact, some argue that it’s easier to start with an electric guitar, because the strings are closer to the fretboard and that makes them more comfortable to play. We suggest going with whatever model you like best.
I am interested in purchasing the Loog for a school. Do you offer special pricing for institutions?
We actually do. Please visit our Educators page to learn more.

Loog Ukulele Reviews
Love love love the Ukulele as well as the acoustic guitar . My kudos are loving learning to play and the cards are such a great help
New outlet for creativity
My wife and I bought this for our daughter for Christmas. She immediately began practicing and learning. Within the first week she had already created her first song. She uses it as a new outlet for creativity. Thank you.
I love my pink Ukulele!
I am a music teacher and teach with a ukulele. I bought the Loog Pink ukulele on the Black Friday sale and I love it! It feels wonderful and is so much fun. I love that it already has knobs for a strap too!
Great instrument - app is lacking
We are really pleased with the quality of our Loog Ukulele. We we’re disappointed to find that the app did not work on our google and windows devices. Once the app was available again we did not see an option for ukulele. We hope this is resolved soon.
Granddaughters Loved Their Ukuleles!!
I bought ukuleles for my two granddaughters for Christmas, they loved them! We immediately had a concert. They are looking forward to their lessons online. So nice they come in different colors.
