If you are a big fan of the gigantic pink ball of kindness that is Kirby, look no further than this Kirby thematic version of the Japanese Otamatone, a musical toy instrument, to add to your collection. Kirby's version is pink (of course), and he has Kirby's eyes and a couple of blush marks.
The humble Otamatone is a cute instrument (or aggressively irritating … for each one) that produces digital sounds similar to a synthesizer when you touch or slide your finger along the neck. The toy is essentially a long stick with a round balloon at the bottom that has two points to look like a face. The sound comes out through the slit of the instrument, and you can press the balloon to change the tone. The slit is designed to look like a mouth. There are also controls on the back of the device to adjust the volume and a low / medium / high slider that changes the octave.
Otamatones are sold for around $ 26 on Amazon, and come in standard colors like white, blue or black. Apart from Kirby, there are also special versions, like this Kumamon bear. Kirby's version was seen by Kirby's Twitter account Team Pupupu Kirby Star Allies.
