Dol Re Mi / Instrument fo dolphins

Dol Re Mi
Dol Re Mi

Based on the fact that dolphins have outstanding sense of hearing and sense of balance, we designed a ball-shaped instrument called Dol Re Mi. Dolphins are able to create melody when they naturally hit the ball with their mouth.

Dolphins are fond of playing with balls. They would like to use their long mouth to hit the ball and make it drift ahead. For every hit, they may knock on the trigger and make a sound. There are 12 triggers in total, as 12 keys make up a perfect melody. Dolphins would create songs when playing Dol Re Mi. And we believe they are able to express themselves by those songs.
