“Who Knew You Could Kazoo?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Find a kazoo, buy a kazoo amp and a "how to play" booklet and get started having fun! Call ahead and schedule a tour of the factory - if the owner's there, ask for him to give the tour as he is really into the whole kazoo experience. There are lots of things to see going back through the history of the kazoo and you can even (if you take the tour) have a chance to make your own kazoo. Very family friendly.

“What a hoot...er, toot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

It took us a while to find the place, but when we finally got there...what a hoot! We seniors were looking for gifts for our grandchildren, but we became little kids ourselves in no time. First, we watched a short animated film featuring singing kazoos. Then came the interesting little tour and the chance to make our own kazoos. It's $4 for the tour that includes the kazoo you make. Additional kazoos are available for 99 cents each (or more, since there are all sorts of kazoos, including electrical which can connect to amplifiers).
We left humming away on our kazoos, carrying our gifts...only to turn back into adults again soon thereafter.

“Neat place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

I didn't take the tour of the facility so I can only review based on the store itself. The store offers several different types of Kazoo's at a reasonable price. 'They also offer other types of instruments and my son was especially pleased with his maraca's that he got for only $7. We had planned on taking the tour, but had to leave because my 2 year old stuck popcorn seeds up her nose and we had to head to the dr in a hurry. The tour costs $4 and you get to make your own kazoo. I'm sure it would have been worth it so if you go there plan on taking it. One tip though. The locals don't seem to know much about this place so I would get directions before you go cause it is back off the main roads and hard to find if you don't know where you are going.
