This classic metal Music Box that cranks out its melody when you turn the handle makes a perfect little musical gift for people of any age. Each music box has its own melody and works using a very simple mechanism, devised back in the 19th Century, made up of a series of prongs that make sound by moving up and striking the rivets on a small revolving cylinder.
The metal cylinder on the "Happy Birthday" Music Box, for instance, is engraved with the American song used in birthday celebrations worldwide, practically everyone on Earth understands it. Try playing your music box on different surfaces such as wood or glass, and you'll see how different it sounds.
Hand-cranked music box.
