Scientists have revealed that many Children born in the 1970's and 1980's had their first exposure to music from Major Morgan.
The blue toys that were popular when there were fewer channels on the TV taught stubby fingered children how to make irritating noises using a series of random bleeps and whistles.
Prized as an innovation at the time, the long forgotten icon of childhood tack can now often be found in the same lofts that now all house dust covered My Little Ponies, Spirograph and Inspector Gadget memoribilia.
Professor Dumbledore from the University of Harry Potter studies said: 'Many parents feel that their children were first exposed to music through tortuous violin and recorder lessons, but this just is not the case anymore. We are also finding that the bleeps and whistles of Major Morgan are finding their way onto new techno music albums. I am led to understand that both Moby and Jean Michel Jarre are now touring with full time Major Morgan players. It is only 10 or so years until the Radios will all be full of samples of Barney the Dinosaur'.
