It's the world's smallest playable harmonica!
The Little Lady Harmonica by Hohner is the world's tiniest playable harmonica and is also one of the smallest mass-produced musical instruments in existence. At only 3.5cm long, you can take this mini harmonica nearly anywhere.
Play hundreds of awesome songs
Unlike other small and portable musical instruments (jaw harp, kazoo, and slide whistle, we're looking in your direction) the Little Lady mini harmonica packs a full eight-note C-Major scale into its tiny frame, so you can play tons of songs.
Yes, you can play the main riff to Piano Man by Billy Joel. Frankly, being able to bust out that riff anywhere you go is worth every penny of the Little Lady.
Here are a few other ditties you can play on this little gem: Jingle Bells, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (aka the Alphabet Song), Mary Had a Little Lamb, Hot Cross Buns (from piano class, remember?), Batman theme song, Superman theme song, Jeopardy! theme song, Low Rider, Spring from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi (to show off your sophistication), Sesame Street theme song, Love Me Do by The Beatles, Deck the Halls, etc. There are hundreds of great melodies that only use one octave in a major key.

The first musical instrument played in space
On December 15th, 1965, astronauts aboard the Gemini VI played "Jingle Bells" on a Hohner Little Lady Harmonica. The actual one used on the flight is now housed in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
Get harmonious wherever you go!
The Little Lady features a small keyring attachment so you can take your soon-to-be-out-of-control harmonica habit on the road.
Since the Little Lady Harmonica is manufactured by Hohner, you know it's a quality instrument. They began manufacturing harmonicas in 1857 and have since become the dominant maker of the instrument in the world.
The Little Lady Harmonica isn't some cheap, plastic, win-it-in-a-claw-prize-machine harmonica. It's the real deal featuring a pearwood comb and perfectly tuned brass reeds.
Includes a carrying case
If you decide not to use the keyring attachment, you can store your mini harmonica in the small black plastic case that ships with every order.
