Loog Guitars at Toy Fair 2016

Phew! We’re having such a great time chatting back and forth with you guys about our new #LoogAcademy app and the improved song book (shipping with the Loog starting in April!) that we almost forgot to tell you about the great time we had at the New York Toy Fair this year. Well, here it goes Booth #5719 was BURSTING with people and we’re not even kidding – many of those who dropped by hadn’t even heard about the Loog and were actually surprised by the guitars’ quality. But, most of all, people were so excited about getting to play a song on day one! We actually took some to the test, powered with the new song book and #LoogAcademy app...

Loog Educator Spotlight: David Mills

Many music teachers are slowly turning toward the Loog to teach kids how to play guitar – the instrument holds easy learning and kids at the heart of its design and we’re psyched that so many educators have caught on.

Every July, the WOS offers a week-long Day Camp for students aged 7-11 years old, who have little to no experience playing instruments. The kids only pay $50 for the week (the WOS Day camps are funded by the Country Music Association) and, this year, got to play around with multiple instruments to see which one they liked better – Loog Guitar included! Watch the kids play up a storm on their last day...

Johnny Marr Gets His Own Electric Loog Guitar

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow – remember when a long, long time ago we actually met Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand and gave him a Loog Guitar? Well, we found out Johnny Marr was in town and… We just couldn’t resist! That’s Johnny holding his very own Electric Loog Guitar during his show in Montevideo. Turns out, Johnny is just the nicest guy ever – we talked about Montevideo, our mutual friend Andrew Loog Oldham, and the amazing work he does with Rock for Kids in Chicago. Such an honor to give him his own little Loog, which he even genuinely seemed to like a lot!
