Blipblox is a deceptively simple-looking toy that lets young kids experiment with sound design and music.
Presales start this spring, according to the description:
The Blipblox is a fully functional synthesizer beatbox that has been simplified and optimized so everyone, including children as young as 3 years old, can enjoy synthesizer audio exploration.
