Among the 45’s that Milan Hulsing sent me last year are two advertisement records for a device that is called the Stylophone.
The Stylophone is a musical instrument in the keyboard category, but very simple. And very old! There are several videos on YouTube that demonstrate the Stylophone. Here is one:
To my surprise is saw last month that Stylophone are still, or again, being sold at gift shops. They cost about 25 euro. I prefer listening to music to making it myself, even if it can be done with a pen.

The guy in the video, Bratt Domino, posted several videos on YouTube with him playing the Stylophone. Those videos didn’t go unnoticed and he was invited to play on a party for some British internet hot shots. Of course he made a documentary of that event.
