Thanks to Melody for our tour of Kazoobie Kazoos. It started with a cute film presentation of the history of kazoos (starring a kazoo too!), then a browse through the museum (just a few cabinets of vintage kazoos). I was fascinated during the factory tour. So low-tech but they manage to make about 500 a day. Then the highlight of... More

As an HR Manager responsible for coordinating staff events, I can say that this was the most unique and intriguing events I've planned. This was planned as a surprise for our leadership team. Once we arrived in the parking lot I could tell the staff were not only confused but they looked a bit disappointed. We entered the building and... More

How about Kazoos, Wazoos, Kazoobles, and even Wazoobles? You may never have heard of them, but you'll probably never forget them once you visit and take the factory tour! Museum, Gift Shop, and even make your own to kazoo to take home... Been living in Beaufort for a while, and finally when company came we visited the Kazoo Factory. It's... More

A fun and unique place to visit. It's a small venue with very friendly staff. Melody gave our tour, and she is very knowledgeable about the process of making a kazoo. If you're in the area, this is worth a quick visit to learn about the first percussion instrument invented in America.

A hidden gem of an attraction. We did a lot of laughing---just the thought of a kazoo factory and museum! What a hoot! Our guide, MELODY, was extremely fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a "good musician"!! As most folks---our first thought/inclination was neutral ---but after visiting the place---it was a neat place to visit and tour the warehouse/factory to see how... More

Everyone should go it is the only Kazoo factory in the US, your kids play kazoos in school you see bands with kazoos. It is great to find that they are Made In America..

We had a good visit to the Kazoo Factory. Since the weather wasn't cooperating for our Hilton Head vacation, we had to figure out something to do for the afternoon. Our family jumped in two cars and headed out to Beaufort (about a 45 minute drive). The Kazoo Factory provided a nice 1-2 hour excursion with a kid-friendly presentation about... More

We took our two granddaughters (ages 7 and 5) to The Kazoo Factory last week. It was fun for all. Our guide, appropriately named Melody, was delightful. The whole visit took about an hour and we got to pick our colors and assemble our own kazoos. A nice way to entertain the girls.

Our tour was lead by Melody, who did a great job at entertaining the group of 2-4 year olds and adults in our group. We did a self guided tour of the "museum", saw a short informative video, took a tour of the assembly room and made our own kazoo at the end. The tour was about an hour. For... More
