It might be like the tin whistle that's and Irish instrument.  Some think 
it's a kids toy but can be a legitimate instrument.  I think one is featured 
in the theme from Titanic.  It's sort of a recorder flute made from tin.

I don't now that's the case but sounds like it could be.  They have a lot 
more volume than the recorder.
