They were developed in Japan by the Cube Works Company along with Maywa Denki and Novmichi Tosa, who is demonstrating in these videos. Otomatone’s are known to be the “world’s cutest and weirdest musical instrument”. This appears to be true.

Otamatones of all sizes and colors can be found on Amazon. This one is a bestseller.

Next: Boomwhacker Bach, Toy Piano Virtuoso Margaret Leng Tan, and The Giant Anteater – Songs for Unusual Creatures.
