Created by Japan’s CUBE Toy company and designed by the artists brothers Masamichi and Nobumichi Tosa of the Maywa Denki design firm, the Otamatone boasts one of the most unusual (yet adorable!) designs for a musical instrument to date. Inspired by the mysterious, uninhibited, and often unpredictable nature of the voice as an instrument, the Tosa brothers created the Otamatone, one of several other pieces in their collection of “Nonsense Machines” made to celebrate and explore all the quirks and “magicness” of the human voice. Joining a machine that reproduces laughter, one that barks like a dog, and other silly, whimsical, yet functional and inherently fascinating contraptions, the Otamatone is a fun, silly exploration of sound and music making.
Now an award-winning toy loved by kids, teens, and adults both in Japan and abroad, this lovable smiling eighth-note features all the cute, crazy, and ingeniously creative appeal you’d expect from a hit Japanese toy, yet combines it with surprisingly sophisticated functionality reminiscent of a violin or the rather more obscure theremin to make a toy people everywhere just can’t put down!
The Otamatone Deluxe is an upgraded version of the original Otamatone, 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. It also comes with an exclusive Otamatone strap, making it the Otamatone of choice for the aspiring virtuoso!

I recently got the original edition as a birthday gift, and instantly fell in love with it. It is tiny and adorable and fun to mess around with, but then I saw that theres this beast, and I was just like "well if I want to be the very best at annoyance with odd instruments, then I gotta have this"
The package took in all four days from ordering it to arrive, and I was surprised by how well packaged it was. There was no way this could be damaged unless it was tossed from the empire state building, and all the objects it could hit in the way down.
And size? Dang this thing is huge. I was actually not expecting it to be this thing, but its the size at which I can wear it like a damn saxophone. A beautifully annoying saxophone that belongs in an episode of Spongebob.
It hits all the notes perfectly, and has a much better volume slider than its younger version, not to mention an aux jack. Now that, that is going to allow for me to be the true demon of Odd Instrumental Annoyance
For the price I've paid, I feel I definitely got my money's worth.
Besides the fact that it's a functioning instrument, it's adorable, and it was well worth the money I paid for it :)
(Also, shipping only took about a week. Props to HAMEE for getting me this item so quickly, as I was very excited about it!
The one downside is that the headphone jack doesn't, as I thought it would, actually send all the audio through the headphones instead of the speakers so you can practice silently; instead, it acts more like a monitor, so the sound plays through both the built-in speaker and the headphones.
Easier to play than the standard otamatone. If you get some vibrato in there, it can almost sound like a weird electric violin. As a cellist, I was able to pick this guy up and play some mostly-in-tune things, but if you're not a string musician, this will take time to master.
The shipping from this seller was super fast, and the communication was excellent. We are very happy with the otamatone we received. I only gave it four stars since I believe someone with fewer musical skills may get frustrated with it. I could be wrong though. We are really having fun with it, but it is difficult to know exactly where each note is. It does play all sharps and flats.
Overall, I enjoy the heck out of this guy and I even plugged it up to my amp and ran some effects through it making it sound even better!
Keep in mind, The sound alone is not very loud unless you plug it up to something.
To anyone who has just bought one and hasn't gotten it or opened it yet, use a coin to open the battery compartment. That confused me, too.
