Went to the Kazoo Factory during spring break when the weather was cold and wet. It was the perfect solution. The film was fascinating and funny and we loved the sound check. Our 13 and 10-year-old girls are particularly thrilled with their accessorized kazoos - had a lot of great music on the long car ride home to Tennessee. Really.... More

My 4 year old daughter and I had a fun tour at the Kazoo Factory. We visit Beaufort and Hilton Head often and it was a rainy day, so we needed to do something inside. Melody was our tour guide and she was very entertaining. We had a fun time and the best part was picking out some kazoos for... More

Just a short drive from town, the Kazoobie Kazoo factory tour is loads of fun! At the end of your $5 tour, you get to assemble your own kazoo, and play a song with your tour group. Our tour guide, Ashley, made the tour a lot of fun. If you go to the factory web site, you can also get... More

Kazoobie Kazoos produce about 1,000,000 plastic kazoos each year. If you visit this industrial park site, you will produce one -- but you'll have a good time doing it. The highlight of the tour is a very tongue-in-cheek video which gives a brief history of the kazoo, which dates to the 1840s. All of the characters in this low-budget video... More

North America's only plastic kazoo factory where various parts are hand assembled into complete plastic kazoos. One sees this and a film on the history of kazoos led by a charming tour guide. At the completion of the tour one "makes" one's own kazoo and visits the gift shop where one can purchase attachments for it or buy from a... More

I came across this factory tour in a travel brochure and it looked like a hoot. It was...in more ways than one! The factory is housed in a small space shared with a tshirt stitching shop. The tour starts with a short film covering the history of the kazoo and then the guide demos kazoo "accessories," the names of which... More

We had a terrific visit to Kazoobie Kazoos. Sarah, our tour guide, was very lively and fun as she explained and demonstrated the different types of kazoos and whistles created. It was fun to see how the kazoos are made. At the end, we were able to pick out our own colors to make a custom kazoo. My 13 year... More

Our third visit to the Kazoobie Kazoo Factory , museum and gift shop. Each time we have a guest visiting us while we are in the Beaufort area...we bring them here...a delight for all ages. Sarah was our guide today- great! You won't find anything like this anywhere else.
