The guys over at make some of the coolest products. One of their latest inventions is the world’s smallest playable harmonica, which is 3.5cm long, called the Little Lady.

In addition to being the world’s smallest playable harmonica, the Little Lady also holds the distinction of being the first musical instrument played in space!

This miniature harmonica is fully playable, featuring a range of one whole octave. Boasting Hohner’s legendary craftsmanship, the Little Lady’s brass reeds and pearwood comb produce a full and lively sound.

The guys over at may have begun selling “Little Lady” harmonicas recently, but Hohner has been producing them since 1924.

In fact, a Hohner Little Lady harp was carried aboard Gemini VI in December 1965 by astronaut Walter “Wally” Schirra who used it to play Jingle Bells. It’s now an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, USA.
