Plastic kazoo, 4-3/4" long. Colors will vary, and may include pink, green, yellow, or orange.
What makes our kazoo different?
The West Music Kazoo is manufactured with the highest-quality plastics (polypropylene) and pigments. They are molded in a state-of-the-art, medical quality injection molding facility in the United States. Cheaper, imported kazoos are made of polystyrene, which is brittle and breaks easily leaving sharp edges. Our kazoos are not brittle and do not break.
It's all about the resonator...that little round paper underneath the 'child-safe' cap is what makes a kazoo work. Many kazoo manufacturers use cheap wax paper or cellophane to make the resonator. The West Music kazoos are made with a high-tech polyethylene paper that is louder and longer lasting than most kazoos. Best of all, our kazoos are waterproof! Our manufacturer has their own custom-built resonator cutting machine that creates the resonators to their exact tolerance. The resonator IS the kazoo!
It's all about safety! Our manufacturer has spent thousands of dollars on improvements to their tooling to ensure that our caps are not easily removeable and are safe for kids! The West Music Kazoo caps are inserted by a machine with 100 lbs. of pressure. Our cap cannot be easily pried out.
Dishwasher-safe! Can be cleaned on the top-rack of your dishwasher, or even in just hot, soapy water! Allow to dry completely before using.
Our kazoos are made in the USA!
How to play the kazoo?
The kazoo is played by singing or speaking through the instrument. This induces an air current which makes the membrane (resonator) vibrate and thus creates a summing, "nasal" sound. By wholly or partially covering up the membrane hole a great variety of sounds are created. The membrane is what makes the kazoo work! This membrane gives the kazoo it's distinction from the "horn section" instruments. The kazoo can be viewed as a singing drum. Therefore it is of no use to simply blow through a kazoo, which is a common mistake of first-time kazoo users. Further, it is not recommended to make a hole in the membrane, since this ruins the instrument.

55.0Great kazoo, great price
I was searching for kazoos to use in my 2nd grade class as we prepare for a special song during our annual Christmas program. The students were so excited at the prospect of kazoos that I did not want to end up with kazoos with a poor sound, or ones that would break easily. These kazoos are wonderful! Affordable, durable, brightly colored. They have a wonderful sound (as far as kazoos go) and the students love them.
These are sturdy kazoos with a reliable sound. Not a single one has been a dud! My 3rd-6th grade choir is using them, and they love them! For health concerns, we make sure each kazoo is labeled with the student's name, and stored in its own zipper baggie.

I teach elementary music. I focus on music literacy, along with appreciation and participation. Kazoos are the first "instruments" we playâ?¦.in kindergarten and first grade. We graduate to recorders and then to band instruments. West Music kazoos have helped me in my program. They have been durable and affordable.
I am a music teacher. I used these for my elementary spring concert last year and they worked really well. The were great quality for the price and held up to the students. This year I am doing a different song requiring kazoos and naturally picked these again.
Our toddlers LOVE these kazoos. I love them because they withstand a lot of abuse (and drool), and can be washed clean! I believe they can even be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher! I've never gone that far, but I have washed several in hot, soapy water, and they are as good as new! You can't say that for many "cheap" kazoos. I'm a believer! I will buy no other for my pre-school music class!
I give a gift to all my students at the end of the session and I needed something new and something fun that was also safe for young children. I love that these are water proof and can be cleaned, and that the stoppers are safe!
