The Stylophone is a miniature stylus operated synthesizer invented in 1967 by Brian Jarvis. It consists of a metal keyboard played by touching it with a stylus. Three million Stylophone's were sold, mostly as children's toys, Rolf Harris appeared for several years as the Stylophone's advertising spokesman in the United Kingdom. The Stylophone was available in three variants: standard, bass and treble, the standard one being by far the most common.

  • An interesting read and my wife, Doreen, was given a brand new one for Christmas 2011 by our youngest son Paul. Yes, they can still be bought to this day. 15:12:2012
