The Loog Guitar: 3-string acoustic designed for kids

The Loog Guitar is a prototype acoustic guitar designed specifically for kids. It's got three strings (half as overwhelming as six) and comes unassembled to encourage your loved ones to feel a higher level of ownership after you've built it together.

The self-assembly feature is also useful later on as your child grows. You can swap the shorter scale neck for a longer one or, if boredom kicks in, opt for a Flying V-style body.

The only catch is that The Loog and its creator Rafael Atijas need $15,000 to fund the first production run, and you can support the project through the creative funding platform Kickstarter ($150 will get you your very own Loog).
