One of our Southtown treasures full of lovely gifts, toys, and unusual kazoos! Take a moment to watch kazoo production in the back of the store; a neat spot to shop.

This place was a worthwhile detour: fun and educational. We learned and saw these metal, hand-made kazoos made on antique machinery for free. For $2.99 we made our own with a very patient, kind, and instructive lady. Terrific experience for young and all.

It was close to the thruway as we were road-tripping across New York State, so we had to stop. We learned a lot, saw them making kazoos on original pulley run machines and even made our own kazoos. The people are knowledgeable and friendly.

Located in Eden, N.Y., not far from Buffalo, this quaint metal kazoo factory is tucked away in the back of a gift shop (that contains numerous, and fine items besides kazoos). It is the only operating metal kazoo factory in North America. Free parking is...More
