In 1990, Good Morning America, Newsweek, The Washington Post, and hundreds of other TV shows, magazines, and newspapers called the Zube Tube™ the "Toy of the 90’s" and likened it to the Hula-Hoop of the late 50’s. The Zube Tube was even chosen by Parents Magazine as one of the Best Toys in 1990 (November, 1990). As with the Hula-Hoop, the Zube Tube is very simple in concept, yet everyone who sees one wants to try it. It has an appeal that seems to reach all ages.

Bob Deissler, a physicist from Cleveland, Ohio, and inventor of the Zube Tube, decided to re-launch the Zube Tube with his own company, The Ultimate Cosmic Toy Company, Inc. This is good news for fans of the Zube Tube as well as for those who have yet to experience the Zube Tube, particularly all the young children out there.
Sound Variations
Zube Tube™ Floor Display
Shaking it, twisting it, plucking it, pumping it, or talking, calling, or singing into it makes a variety of the most unusual sounds imaginable, without any electronics or batteries. It can be an alien-zapping bazooka, a wild wolf call, a young singer’s echo chamber, an out-of-this-world sound effects device or a space-age musical instrument.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Shout, talk, sing or make other sounds into an end of the tube. An echo effect will be heard.
  • Shake the tube sideways. This will cause the acoustic coil to hit the side of the tube producing a laser-type sound.
  • Pluck or rub the acoustic coil to create for a soft, interesting sound.
