Why buy kids' music boxes ?

Music boxes are like treasure chests for your children. They can keep fancy jewellery, gifts from grandparents, special things they find when playing, and so much more. They become treasured memories themselves, a wonderful ballerina or princess, twirling and dancing to the music.

Our music boxes had many tunes, such as ‘take me out to the ball game’, ‘The Magic Flute’ and more. They are made from quality wood, so they will last until they become heirlooms for the next generation.

What are the different types of music boxes for children?

You will be quite surprised at the variety of music boxes we have for you to gift to your children. You can be delighted by a traditional jewellery box with a ballerina or a princess. We also have heart-shaped boxes, a magical cloud shaped box, and even a rocket ship!

For some really different music box choices, you can have a doll's house, a secret garden, and cute little koalas. Choose a traditional jewellery box, or a gorgeous and creative alternative.

What are the benefits of kids' music boxes?

There are benefits for children to having a music box. It can be a place they can store their treasures and take ownership of them. There are also nostalgic memories that can be created with a music box. They hark back to a simpler time, with handcrafted wood and delicate figurines, dancing to magical music. No need to replace batteries and they don’t break down when the power is out. Buy a music box for a newborn, and begin the journey of an heirloom, something treasured for life.

Things to consider when buying music boxes

What will the music box be for? How many necklaces and earrings will be kept in this keepsake gift? You can find music boxes with drawers for brooches, or a deep chest for necklaces. And there are smaller boxes that are more sentimental and nostalgic keepsakes.

Also, consider the personality of the person you’re buying for. We have a playful rocket ship music box, or cute koalas who play a tune when you pull their tail. And we have the more traditional boxes, with twirling ballerinas or princesses. Peruse the collection and consider the journey the musical box will take with your child.
