We have been looking for the perfect music box for Lulu since she was born.
And big daddy recently found this.
A turn of the elegantly shaped key magically produces one of Mozart's melodies from inside the solid wooden ball.
The 18 note chime plays whether the ball is rolling across the floor or standing on a table as an intriguing ornament.
The chime is mounted in premium quality wood that has been fashioned into a perfect sphere by village craftsmen on the edge of the Black Forest.
how cool is that?
Though the mechanism remains hidden, the music will always escape the bounds of the geometric form.
Wind it up and listen to Mozart’s ‘Voi che sapete’ from ‘Marriage of Figaro’.
It's designed by Adam und Harborth of Berlin.
All the best kids toys seem to come from Germany.
Most importantly, Lulu absolutely loves it.
She has been going down instantly every night, the minute we wind it up.
Getting her to sleep has never been so easy!
I only wish we had found this three years ago.
oh you can find it here.
