Herbie the Musical Skinstrument Is the Perfect Excuse to Cop a Feel

The reason the Twister game has been popular for so many years is that it is a great excuse to get on the floor and entwine your limbs with someone else’s. The other person can’t object because, after all, that’s how the game is played.

Now in our high-tech, digital age we have Herbie the Musical Skinstrument, a toy that lets you “make music” by touching someone else’s body parts:

So how long do you think it will take before players become curious about the sound Herbie will make when a “private part” is touched? Forget playing doctor, in the 21st century the iPhone generation of kids will use this instead. Herbie will also become the favorite ice breaker for members of NAMBLA.

It doesn’t help matters that the commercial for Herbie actually shows two guys high fiving each other in an eerie reminder of the “Eiffel Tower” position! (Look it up.)

No doubt a certain percentage of sales will come from people curious to find out if Herbie makes a Rusty Trombone sound like a rusty trombone. (Again, look it up.)

  • Herbie reminded me of this old toy called Touch Tunes.

  • The Musical Herbie is the only thing my 7 yr. old grandson wants for his birthday 11/1. The 800 number to call does not work, nor does the webside – “Get”. What’s with this place??? need an answer very soon.

  • my grandson wants Herbie for Christmas. The 800 number is just an information number and the
    “Get Herbie” website does not work!
