Pink Ukuleles & Pink Guitars

If like me, you have been a viewer and fan of the enchanting Charlie McDonnell and other musical youtubers, you may have found yourself landing up with one of these:

That’s certainly what happened to me! I’ve always loved the idea of playing more musical instruments than just the piano, so when I saw Charlie strumming a (what I thought at the time to be) a cute tiny guitar, I thought to myself: “That looks like fun!”. A quick google search uncovered that it was actually called a ukulele rather than a “cute tiny guitar”, and armed with this knowledge, I went on Amazon, found this cute pink ukulele for a bargain price of around $30 and couldn’t resist the purchase. I’m really glad I did buy it too because it doesn’t just *look* like fun, it really is fun and easy to learn to play.
Now that I’ve been playing for over a year, I feel like I’ve got the hang of it and I feel like it may be time to move the next step up: a pink guitar!
A guitar has more strings than a ukulele, usually harder strings too which are slightly tougher to press down, and since my future pink guitar will be bigger, your hands need to stretch out more into slightly more awkward angles in order to play chords… but I think I’m up for the challenge!
So today I was browsing through the girls guitars and guitar accessories they have available on Amazon, looking to see which ones I’d like to make a home for. I have pretty small hands so I was thinking that a small or kids guitar may be ok for me to start on.
Here are the candidates:
Girly guitar candidates:
PINK ACOUSTIC GUITARS
Hot Pink Guitar (USA)(UK) :: Pastel Pink Guitar by Daisy Rock (USA) (UK)
Pink guitar with decoration (USA) (UK) :: Glitter & Sparkles Pink Guitar (USA) (UK)
PURPLE ACOUSTIC GUITARS
This is the only purple guitar I could find on Amazon.com. I think it’s cute!
There are a few more varieties on Amazon.co.uk.

HAVE YOUR SAY ON WHICH GIRLY GUITAR I SHOULD GET
Which do you think I should get? I’m leaning towards the glitter & sparkles pink acoustic guitar with floral guitar strap and purple & pink plectrums!
