Everyone loves music boxes. Okay, maybe not everyone, but plenty of people out there do. Listening to a real live music box is somewhat difficult to do nowadays. What with all our high-tech MP3s and iTunes accounts.
If you want to experience an old classic first hand, you might be interested in the Mechanical Music Box. However, you might want to have some musical know-how before you get it. You are given three blank strips of special paper that you punch holes into to make music. This is then fed through the a hand cranked box that will give you tones like a musical instrument. Also included in this kit is an instruction manual, a hole puncher, and a pre-punched “Happy Birthday” song strip. Costing only $20, this is a great gift for any budding musicians, or would be fun as a pastime.
