Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw! This fun pack has all the fun without the soldering. Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper. This is the assembled version, for kits visit our kit page.
Runs on a single AAA battery for many hours (even 'nearly dead' batteries will work)
Use pencils, brushes, people, fabric, anything you want to make noise.
