Hand Crafted all metal Classic Kazoo. Probably the easiest instrument in the world to play. If you can hum it, you can play it.

Ages 3 & up.

Colors will vary.

How to play the kazoo:

The whole idea behind the instrument is, that a kazoo player by singing or speaking through the instrument induces an air current which makes the membrane vibrate and thus creates a summing, "nasal" sound.

By wholly or partially covering up the membrane hole a great diversity of sounds are created.

The membrane is the key point of the kazoo. Therefore it is of no use to simply blow through a kazoo, which is a common mistake among first time kazoo-users.

History:

A guy by the name of Alabama Vest got the idea for the kazoo in the 1840's in Macon, Georgia. He teamed up with the German clock manufacturer Thaddeus Von Glegg to construct the first kazoo.

Emil Sorg, who was a travelling salesman, came across a Vest and von Glegg's kazoo on one of his business trips. He showed great interest in the kazoo and was eager to get the kazoo into mass-production.

With this thought in mind Emil Sorg travelled to New York. Here he became partners with Michael McIntyre, who was an iron smith. Together Sorg and McIntyre created the first production of the kazoo in the year 1912.

McIntyre had now gained enough knowledge to maintain the production of kazoos all by himself. All he needed was a larger factory. In 1913 he separated from Emil Sorg and teamed up with Harry Richardson who owned a big metal factory.

McIntyre and Richardson launched the first mass-production of the kazoo in 1914.

I was worried about the condition the candies would come in, since they are very fragile. Candy Crate did an excellent job making sure they were protected from rough travel. Thanks!

It arrived as a gift to a friend earlier than I thought which was GREAT, especially since it went to Hawaii. My brother-in-law loved it - not only the novelty of it, but the candy was really good too.

Excellent... I pleased with how quickly my order was shipped & how cheap your products were compaired to other websites. Thank You for everything.
Dear Candy Crate, I recently ordered from you and just wanted you to know how delighted I was not only with the candy and it's freshness but also the SHIPPING! I am in Texas and it is hot here. I did order the 2 day faster shipping with the ice pack - and the candy arrived in tip-top shape - fresh and crisp in each box upon arrival. The candy was a BIG hit - something the recipient had not seen since childhood - she was delighted !!!!
