Music Boxes and childhood memories

 One of my earliest childhood memories is having a music box with a little plastic ballerina that would spin and spin nonstop as long as I had the lid open! I remember trying to peek into the box to catch her not spinning.  I'm not sure who gave it to me or what even happened to if over the years but I love recalling that beautiful box that held my little earrings.

Do people still buy these types of music boxes for children?  I have three girls and I've never purchased one for them. Sure they have had little boxes to store necklaces and earrings but never one that played a special song.  This is something that I'm going to keep in mind when I have to purchase something special for them or for another child.

Did you ever have a music box as a child? Do you still have it? Do you have one as an adult? When was the last time you looked at music boxes as a gift for someone? Here are some that I found that were very unique! These boxes are little pieces of art!

I had a music box similar to the one that you described that played The Nutcracker Suite! I don't have it anymore. I haven't thought about it in a long time....thanks for the memories.

Mine had a ballerina. My favorite one played, When Irish Eyes are Smiling. Thanks for bringing back some childhood memories!

I did! I used to collect music boxes! Not all of them were actual jewelry boxes - some were just fun figurine types. One of my favorite stores is the San Francisco Music Box Co. - they've got everything!
