We have been looking for the perfect music box for Lulu since she was born.
And big daddy recently found this.
The Mozartkugel.
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.

It is really beautiful, it would make a great baby gift. It's price tag is pretty steep, but it's the nicest music box I've seen and would be an amazing trinket to keep forever.

That has to be one of the most awesome toys I have ever set my eyes upon. Totally beats my 1970's Fisher Price collection. Ohhh I want it for me.

That is one cool music box and bonus that it puts Lulu to sleep instantly!

Did you order it on line? We need a store like this in Canada...does one exist? Not in Kelowna I know!

Neat. I'm in Munich this week and crossing my fingers I can skip out early after work tomorrow to shop my ass off.

Hmmm. That is one interesting looking music box! And my favourite mobile is from Germany. I went back to see if I could get another for the new kid's room, but they were out. I'll have to try again - it is so lovely - simple and wooden and cheery without being tacky and too sweet.
