A Gift That Resonates

Whether we're singing out loud, tinkering with instruments, or simply humming along to the tunes of nature, we simply crave melody. That's why musical instruments have been around since people can remember, and mechanical music boxes since we've, well, mastered mechanics. The Mechanical Music Box Set is a unique variation on the old classic. Holes punched into special paper strips are fed into a hand-cranked "box," which produces tones quite unlike those of any other musical instrument. Makes a great gift for budding and professional musicians alike. Comes with three blank paper strips, a hole puncher, an instruction manual, and a pre-punched "Happy Birthday" song strip.

    I used this to create the functional components of a balsa wood music box. Since it was our first anniversary, the paper music strips were perfect. I used one to punch in our wedding song. She absolutely loved it!

    Haven't tried doing our own, but the birthday song sounds great. Really like the tone of the chimes. Looking forward to trying out our own tunes.

        An 8-year-old girl loved this gift. She began by following the directions but was making plans for punching her own strip for an original song. Her 15-year-old cousin thought it was pretty cool too!

          Comments about UncommonGoods Mechanical Music Box Set:

          I purchased this for a budding musician so that he might enjoy creating his own music. I also purchased some of the extra music papers. The music box comes with a pre-printed 'Happy Birthday' music sheet and we were able to listen to the music box. The tones were sweet. Can't wait to hear the new creations.

                The music box is one of the more unique items we found to give to our 13 year old child. It is fun to see her continue her musical education and be proud of her creation at the same time. She has thoroughly enjoyed this item. Also, it has sparked a renewed interest of another of our friends who always wishes she had owned a product like this.

                        I bought this for my son who is studying acoustical engineering and music. I bought extra strips right away because was quite sure he would enjoy making his own songs. He certainly did. Christmas morning he was transposing a song that his brother requested.
