The Stylophone Beatbox is possibly too much fun. Most people are familiar with the original Stylophone (thanks to the pioneering influence of Rolf Harris), but it's now received a serious makeover with its hipper, grimier cousin, the Stylophone Beatbox.

The principle remains the same - use the stylus to touch the metal areas, complete the circuit and make a sound. Instead of the distinctive shrill wail of the original Stylophone, the Beatbox version produces several different percussion sounds, from bass drum all the way to hi-hat and beyond. There are three different sound palettes - percussion, actual beatboxing (provided by beatbox champion MC Zani) and bass tones, allowing you to create enough beats and melodies to get a production credit on the next Girls Aloud album. One of the craftier features, though, allows you to create a percussion loop, which means you can form a beat over which to improvise with any of the other voices.

It's difficult to describe the sense of pure giggliness that creating your own beats and tapping along with them can produce. You might look like a giddy fool while you drum away, but you'll sound like a beatmaster genius. You can take the fun even further by connecting your MP3 player or hi-fi to the Beatbox (via the headphone socket and included cable) and tapping along with your favourite records. We recommend something a little jauntier than The Complete Works Of Daniel O'Donnell (though it certainly benefited from a little more 'street' influence).

All in all, it's pretty much impossible to get bored of this percussive gem - you can play alone, with headphones, out loud or with friends. Heck, you could even start a Stylophone orchestra, just make sure you pick up the Stylophone Beatbox and start drumming.

Don't waste your money

If you're a fan of the original Stylophone then you'll be totally disappointed with this cheap and nasty instrument. Cheap plastic. Truely terrible contact surface for the stylus. Cheap and nasty samples. It was so bad that we threw ours away. Don't be tempted.

A bit of Fun

I bought this as a novelty Xmas gift for my boyfriend. I was surprised with how much it could actually do and he's pleased with it. He has spent hours creating new tunes and beats. Great for a bit of fun!

Stylophone Beatbox

Bought as Christmas gift, the service and delivery from date of order was very quick and efficient, however the product is a little disapointing, although many of the functions are good the actual beatbox is very slow. Maybe more practice needed, change of batteries?Unsure, but still good fun and value for money.

Great Fun Stylophone Beatbox

Have purchased as a Christmas gift, however, everyone in the office had great fun playing their own rythm. Im sure it will be a winning present this year.
