On a two-week road trip visiting all kinds of quirky roadside attractions - from the gnome wilderness, to the museum of vacuum cleaners, to a halloween museum - this ended up being one of the very few low points of the trip. It had very...More

Allow 30 minutes. Little has changed in this original tiny, fan only cooled factory for the original, American made Kazoos. The fun of making Kazoo tunes remains same for all ages, too. Watch Kazoos being made. Buy a red tractor, ear of corn, airplane or...More

One of our Southtown treasures full of lovely gifts, toys, and unusual kazoos! Take a moment to watch kazoo production in the back of the store; a neat spot to shop.

This place was a worthwhile detour: fun and educational. We learned and saw these metal, hand-made kazoos made on antique machinery for free. For $2.99 we made our own with a very patient, kind, and instructive lady. Terrific experience for young and all.
