Idea behind the work

When you touch objects of various colors, such as fruits and vegetables, curtains, and clothes, with the bell, the bell generates tones corresponding to those colors.

By prepareing a lot of bells that have touched different colors, you and your friends can play music together. It can be used as an educational toy that allows children to notice the difference in colors around them or to notice the difference in tones. In addition, it might be fun to use it as a call bell in a restaurant - a different melody for each table!
