Adorably Annoying Musical Instrument
Team Pupupu Kirby Star Allies on Twitter has spotted this Kirby-themed Otamatone coming out in Japan soon. The annoyingly adorable musical instrument even captures Kirby’s cuteness with its thoroughly pink look.

Just in case you do not know what an Otamatone is, it is basically a handheld instrument that creates synthesized sounds. The shape resembles a physical 8th note and it is often available in a variety of colours. The user moves their fingers up and down the neck to create a variety of sounds.
It is electric and wireless so its portable. Which just makes it a very potent instrument to annoy people in public with. Its can practically be as annoying as a Vuvuzela (remember those?). At least this one looks adorable.
Users can control the volume at the back and thankfully there is an off-button. The battery is also accessible here.
