Toy Fair: Washboard Tie

Robert Fishbone demonstrated this dual-purpose Washboard Tie while humming Stevie Wonder’s “Superstitious”, but I think it was slightly out of tune. $20 at your local hillbilly supplier.

    And yet no one makes an actual piano key necktie (I’m looking at you Thanko). When will my dream of a necktie based band ever come into fruition? (In case you are wondering, the lead singer will use a necktie based electrolarynx, and is tentatively called Nick Tye & the Windsors).

    Musical spoons and jugs are going to be back any day now! You know those kid’ drums that hold maracas and a tambourine? How about a hillbilly set with the tie and spoons inside a jug that opens up like a clam?

    Maybe not. Joel, how about a random percussive caps on the spoons and the tie?
