The Sing-along Crew is the first design concept by Julissa “Julie” Del Rosario of Avant Garde Products. Julie, originally an immigrant from Peru, moved to the US and became the caretaker for Eddie Steele, the Company’s original founder and former-CEO. While working for Eddie, Julie was exposed to Eddie’s love for products and discovered her own passion for toys. After Eddie’s passing in 2019, Julie launched her own startup, Avant Garde Products, to develop and design unique toy concepts. This project is the first partnership between Singing Machine and Avant Garde.

Gary Atkinson, Singing Machine CEO, commented, “We’re delighted to be working with Julie on this new creative line of music-inspired toy products. We’ve married the popularity of plush toys and added the hot ‘wearable’ play-factor. Then, we brought our signature element of music and singing to the products. The Singalong crew has tested extremely well among the target audience and makes a great addition to the beginner lineup to our Singing Machine Kids assortment.”
