breeze to squeeze & tease out a tune with no keys! “The world’s cutest,
weirdest musical instrument”
from Japan, the sensation known as the Otamatone has got to be the world’s
quirkiest electronic musical instrument ever. Invented by Maywa Denki, the
Otamatone is a great toy for kids, or a fun addition to any musician’s arsenal

instruments don't have faces, and there is probably a very good reason for
that; nobody thought of it before! Allow us to introduce one of the cutest
musical instruments ever - and it has a face! It is a singing musical-note

and for even more musical effect. The distinctly Japanese Otamatone Electronic
Instrument is wacky, adorable, and a great instrument for some truly unique
finger up and down the stem to change the pitch.
