My husband and I are always looking for interesting and unusual things to do while on vacation and while spending a week in Hilton Head we visited Kazoobie Kazoos in Beaufort. A small kazoo museum, a short History of the Kazoo video and a demonstration of different kazoo types start off the tour of the assembly and packaging operation conducted by 2 full time and 1 part time employee and an office manager. Melody explained the process and demonstrated every step necessary to send out the 5000 kazoos per day they average. At the end of the tour, you get to make your own kazoo to take home. Overall, a fun and informative outing!

We always look for something different to do while travelling to new places. Our trip to Beaufort, South Carolina was no different. While there for a marine corps. graduation, we saw something on-line for a kazoo museum/factory tour. We decided to go. It was a smaller sized warehouse with a small store in the front, the museum in the middle and the factory in the back. We walked through the museum and watched a short little film and then had a demonstration of different types of kazoos by one of the employees. We then toured the factory. I believe we were told they have 2 full-time employees and 2 part time employees. All the work on the kazoos is done by hand. It was interesting to see how it works. We then got to make our own kazoo. From start to finish, it took about 30-45 minutes. The cost was $4/pp. If you are looking for something different to do, check out The Kazoo Factory and say "hi" to Melody for us.

We wanted to visit during our last visit to Beaufort last year, but it was close on Saturday. We made it this year, and enjoyed the tour of the small factory. Melody was our tour guide, she was very professional, friendly and knowlegeable. There is a small museum in the front part of the store, then you watch a video and tour the factory. Great deal, very affordable and you get to make(put together) your own kazoo to take home. We even bought a big package of kazoos to give to family and friends on their birthdays!! We play songs on our kazoos everyday....fun, fun!!

We had our only rainy day and decided to head to Beaufort, SC and the Kazoobie Kazoos factory and museum just for kicks! What a great surprise. The Staff provided a wonderful tour and educational experience. Melody was a great educator, very personable and knowledgable
We were able to make our own kazoos. A good time had by all.
