No sour notes on National Kazoo Day & de-stress with bubble wrap!

CLEVELAND - The kazoo is a classic childhood instrument.

“It’s an old five and dime favorite,” said Steve Presser, owner of Big Fun Toys.

But like many old-school toys, the kazoo has waned in popularity over time. In fact, Presser says the public is "kazoo-less.” 

The owner of Big Fun Toys, carries a variety of kazoos in his store. 

“We have some that are $0.50 and we have some, the metal ones, that are $3,” he said. 

In honor of National Kazoo Day The List stopped by Big Fun for an impromptu jam session. But don't make the mistake so many people do when they pick up a kazoo... remember to hum. Be spontaneous.. and be careful. It’s not just sound coming out of these things. 

“They’re spitters, no doubt about it,” said Presser.
