The Stylophone Is Back And It Is Cheap And Great Fun!

Yesterday, my girlfriend and I were walking around the city and walked into Brooklyn’s Urban Outfitters. I held my snobby-nose high as we entered the store but then I remembered my love for looking at the stupid books they sell. When I walked downstairs I was reminded that my cynical snobby attitude sometimes needs an adjustment. Next to the cheesy books was one of my favorite instruments of all time repackaged and ready to be used as a coffee table toy – The Stylophone.

For years the only way to get a new Stylophone was to buy one over eBay for a lot of money. Thankfully, a smart entrepreneur has re-boxed this amazing instrument, added an iPod input, and a few new sounds. This means for $20 some odd dollars I can now sit around my apartment and play my favorite Sea And The Cake songs while wielding a pen an as instrument. For more on this awesome instrument watch the above video and then hope to god this YouTuber never narrates a video again.
