My 7-year-old grandson was thrilled with this gift!

I love the simplicity and design of this as I am purchasing it for our grandson. However, it has no instructions to teach him how to operate. It coud be so simple that it does not need instructions…but I feel they would be beneficial.

Gave to my 6 year old grandson for Christmas. He is hugely into computer games & anything electronic so I was hoping to pull his attention away to more basic toys. I succeeded with Loopy Lou! He loved it. So did his Dad!
Unique, hand-crafted toy

I'm a sucker for toys that have operative qualities, but do not need batteries or electricity. This toy is darling. The quality is obvious, both visually and aurally.
Grandson and grandparents love it!

After I showed my grandson who is 3, how Loopy Lou works, he played with it for hours. Making his voice go fast and slow amused us greatly. When his dad came to pick him up he proceeded to show his dad how he could make him sound like a chipmunk. And I have the added pleasure of pushing the button and hearing his voice when he is not visiting. I love that this toy is homemade, everyone I have showed it to has liked it...and has commented on the workmanship that went into it. So glad for The Grommet to make these things possible! Sharon

Loopy Lou

Handcrafted in Brooklyn, these simple wooden toys let you to record a message, play it back, and change the pitch in a non-digital, non-plastic way.


Handcrafted from sustainable wood in Brooklyn, NY, brandnewnoise sound recorders let kids explore their voices in a decidedly non-plastic, non-digital way. They can record a message or music, then play it back at regular speed, or at a faster or slower pitch.

Artist Richard Upchurch came up with the idea during a large, rather loud family vacation. With each child in the group came a noisy, plastic toy. The experience inspired Richard to design a different kind of noisemaker for his nephew—one that required nothing but his nephew’s own voice and imagination. During show and tell at his nephew’s school, Richard’s creation created quite a buzz. All the kids wanted one. The rest is brandnewnoise history.

The Lil' Mib is a message recording box complete with pitch control and a flag to indicate that a new message awaits. Loopy Lou is a sound recording device with a loop switch, pitch control, and output.

Modern and minimalist, with a touch of nostalgia, brandnewnoise gives voice to a new generation of sound. more Their Story
