It's heading into holiday season and I'm being asked what I want for X-mas..

So what are some interesting little gadgets for making music that'd I'd might enjoy?

Not sure how I feel about those. I've never played one, but the demos kind of make them sound a bit boring, no?

I have the Gin & Tonic and it's pretty cool, a little too toyish but pretty fun!

I'd really love a Midi Pocket Piano but I can't seem to find them anywhere, even used. But great idea!

Volca beat, or any volca. I’ve just got the beat, it’s fun. Also, monotron delay.

You can never have too many Pocket Operators. The Robot is a blast.

The Korg Volcas and Monotrons are fun.

How about some percussion instruments? Tambourines, maracas, that weird fish thing, etc...

I have the Monotron duo and delay models, owned a Volca FM, and have a shit ton of percussion stuff! Maybe I just own everything? :0

I'm actually thinking of picking up a used Korg MS20 Mini or something similar, maybe even another Arturia Keystep. Not really toys but full fledged instruments, but...

*Shrug*

I'm getting a craving for yet another Kaoss Pad, though I've bought and sold three of them (two KP2 models and a Mini). Oof.
