These cute music boxes are fun. Did not know 1 of the songs. Gave these to 4 different people. They thought they were cute, one loved it. Wish they were a little larger but fun, cute, not too expensive. Good stocking stuffer or one more thing to add in a bag o stuff.

These were not what I expected but I really like them. I will add a little Christmas tape to the sides as they need something. The sound is really good. I may need to buy more. The value is good. Delivery was very fast. These will be perfect stocking stuffer for an older child or as a gift for an adult who likes music boxes.

These little hurdy gurdys were the perfect choice for some Christmas stockings. Easy to turn and with pretty melodies.

My fault entirely. I forgot the difference between a hurdy-gurdy plays ONLY WHILE you are turning the handle and a music box you wind it up and then it plays BY ITSELF until the spring runs out.Really wanted music boxes.

I ordered these for my grandchildren for their annual Christmas ornament. They are a nice little smaller than expected music box. However, the cardboard box is a bit flimsy. I thought they were ornaments maybe my misunderstanding, but there was nothing to hand them with. I had to drill two small holes on top and slip a ribbon on. I also had to add a drop of glue to the inside edge of the box so the music box would stay in. Once that was done, they were good to go. I liked the story on the back too.
