The Tomy Nikken Gakki makes it easier than ever for children to create beautiful melodies. The gadget produces unique sound effects when holding down any two of the four electrodes. A tone can also be triggered if two people are each holding an electrode and then touch each other to complete the circuit. Check out the video for an entertaining demonstration of how tapping on another person’s face or hands creates fun musical refrains. The Nikken Gakki has three play modes including performance, transform and drum mode, which lets little ones (or adults) rock out on their buddies like their bodies were a drum kit.
