Brimms became the sole manufacturer of metal kazoos in the United States and expanded the kazoo product line to include other kazoo instruments. Utilizing their experience in injection molding from the sporting goods business, Brimms also developed a line of imprinted plastic kazoos. A new marketing approach has made the plastic kazoos available in counter displays at retail outlets across the U.S.. The Original Kazoo Factory was renovated in 1986 and a museum and gift shop were added to the site.
Kazoos of all shapes and sizes are permanently displayed in the museum. The collection chronicles the history of kazoos as well as the factory. Display cases contain several types of wooden kazoos, liquor bottle shaped kazoos that celebrated the end of prohibition, antique kazoo instruments, silver and gold kazoos, and many more. From the museum space, you can view kazoos being made on the original equipment.
