"When I first looked at this I said that it's a pretty good toy but I'm concerned about the price. I thought it was $50 and then they told me it was an affordable $25," said Silver.

Paper Jamz is a line of six toy guitars, six drum sets and an amplifier. Despite its name, the toys aren't exactly paper-like or paper-thin, but pretty close.

They're less than an inch thick, the drums are just over an inch thick and all the different models are completely flat. The amplifier is made of cardboard.

Guitars and drums join the flat toy wave

Each Paper Jamz instrument comes with three songs built into it, Instead of using actual strings to play the guitar, you strum the chords drawn on the surface with your fingers.

With the nine-piece drum sets, kids play with a touch of their fingers. There's also a karaoke mode in the toys, and kids can also jam freestyle and create their own music."
