WHAT IS OTAMATONE?
The Otamatone is a cute, quirky, and fun to play electronic musical toy characterized by its eighth note-shaped body, adorable moving mouth, and silly, buzzing, amusingly off-key “”voice.”” Developed by design firm Maywa Denki, it was first released in Japan in 2009 and has been the country’s best-selling musical toy ever since.
Innovative, unique, and now a popular toy worldwide, the Otamatone has earned high praise from fans and the toy industry alike, including the Japan Toy Association’s grand prize Japanese Toy Award in their ‘High Target’ toy division.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You don’t need to be a professional musician to have fun with the Otamatone – anyone can get the hang of it!
Play any tune you like by sliding fingers up and down on the stem. Shake the Otamatone while playing for vibrato and create a “”wah-wah”” effect by squeezing the Otamatone’s cheeks to make it’s mouth open and close. Switches on the back of the head allow you to switch octaves, control the volume, and turn the Otamatone on and off to preserve battery life.
ABOUT OTAMATONE KIRBY DELUXE
The second character edition of the Otamatone was released to celebrate Kirby’s 25th anniversary. The body is pink and Kirby’s face has been printed on the silicon head. The Otamatone’s round head and Kirby are a match made in heaven.
The Otamatone Deluxe is an upgraded version of the original, featuring a larger size, a more responsive stem for easier playing, both pitch and volume control, and a 3.5mm jack for headphones and speakers.
