While browsing Elderly's Instrument website, I came across this cool 'ukulele made entirely from LEGO blocks here (http://elderly.com/new_instruments/items/TSU1-002.htm). My 7 year-old mentioned that he wouldn't mind getting one. I smiled and said, "Not for $275.00. I would instead get him a Mainland concert w/slotted headstock when they become available."

I, too, would like to hear a sample of it being played. The page indicates it features "a fretless fingerboard, Grover friction pegs & Aquila strings."
