Anyone heard of Suite PreCure? It's a Japanese cartoon.

Wikipedia
 
Cure Module (キュアモジューレ Kyua Mojūre?)
A Brooch-like device that allows transformation of Pretty Cures. They orginate from the G-clef in Hibiki, Kanade, and Siren's hearts. To transform, a Fairy Tone must be inserted in the top slot of the Cure Module, and say "Let's Play! Pretty Cure Modulation!!" (レッツプレイ!プリキュアモジュレーション!! Rettsu Purei! Purikyua Mojurēshon!!?) and then press the button on the bottom side of the brooch. The Pretty Cures often transform in harmony, although Ellen is capable of transforming on her own whilst Hibiki and Kanade need to be in harmony to transform. The Cure Module also functions as an Ocarina, which is used to play music when a Fairy Tone is inserted, each containing various properties from granting sweet dreams to enhancing powers during battle.



Here's a commercial
