Took our boys, 9 and 11, to see how kazoos were made. They learned about the history and then had a chance to make their own kazoos and wazoos. They had fun and learned something new. Melody was our tour guide. She was well educated on the process and answered all of our questions. Plus, she made it fun for... More

If you are near Hilton Head Island in SC, and you have some time, take a short ride to Beaufort. Not only is it a very nice little historic city on the waters of SC with lots of nice shops and restaurants but it is the home of the Kazoo Factory that has its own museum and interesting history.

My wife and I visited the factory in hopes of finding something for our grandson. We didn't know what to expect, but we had a great time. Tara did an outstanding job of demonstrating and talking about the factory and the instruments. We bought several items and are very sure our grandson is going to enjoy his presents.

This tiny tour is worth your time. We smiled the whole time we were there. The video about the kazoo is kitschy and a hoot. Melanie was great and did not even crack a smile as she demonstrated the various tonal sound of kazoos. The tour itself takes 10 minutes at max and you meet all 3 workers. We left... More

It truly brought a smile to my lips! Located in an industrial park on the edge of tow it was a little hard to find but truly... More

Great fun and very informative!! Melody greeted us and showed us over to the museum section. After that we saw a cute video. Then Melody gave a little talk and demonstrated various kazoo type instruments. Next came a tour of the factory. At the conclusion of the tour we were able to assemble our own kazoo. There were five of... More
