Around Christmas time my Husband decided that he wanted a Stylophone, it was one of those toys he had never been brought as a child and he always remembered that the annoying kid down the road had one and he never did. I had a quick look on eBay and found that they were relatively cheap. For a modern remake of the original Rolf Harris one it is around £10.00, there are also some original ones on eBay selling for around the same price. We managed to buy a second hand one from a local person for £3.50. For those of you who don't know a Stylophone is a miniature analog stylus operated synthesizer. Invented in 1967 it was a popular toy until the mid ... Read the complete review

The Stylophone is a small (slightly larger than handheld) musical instrument, it's not a serious thing but it does what it does, and it does it well. It's played via an attached stylus(hence the name I believe!) and by pressing the keys with the pen/stylus, there are several different sounds that can be chosen via a waveform selector, you can add vibrato to the notes with the flick of a switch and the range of pitch can be increased with the turn of a knob recessed into the back of the Stylophone.

This wonderful bit of retro kit makes an excellent present, as I found at Christmas! It takes the fondly remembered Stylophone sound and design and adds a couple of modern touches; you get a choice of 3 slightly different sounding noises to make, a vibrato switch, volume wheel (which comes in useful when others don't find it quite so fun) and headphone socket. The keyboard is in a piano style and gives you an octave and a half of pure beeping fun. A small booklet included also has a couple of songs telling you what button to press to get you started. A couple of downsides that I have noticed; the stylus and keyboard needs cleaning every now and then because the ... Read the complete review

Stylophones tend to bring a wave of nostalgia when anyone even hear them mentioned and for various age groups (children, who might enjoy it in earnest; people over 30 with fond Rolf Harris related memories; and those Generation Xers who enjoy a healthy dose of knee jerk irony) the stylophone is perfectly capable of providing a good time. For the most part though, it's little more than a novelty, and doesn't have much ue a an instrument. This is largely due to the fact that it makes a pretty horrible, piercing sound on all 3 of its tone settings. It has some uses though: I find it's useful for sound effects rather than any kind of melodic playing and I've seen someone use Read the complete review

Yamaha YPT210 - Lots of good quality different sounds & rhythms, clear fascia design and YES system. Also has MIDI. No touch sensitivity means it's an electric keyboard only, slightly cheap build. Awful stand.
