Matilda’s Music Box MegaMart: Free Earplugs with Each Purchase

Welcome to where your music box needs are met.  I’m sure you traveled a long path to reach our store.  That’s because Google Maps has you go through three states to reach us, which is an improvement over Mapquest plunging our potential customers into the Atlantic Ocean.  Now, what are you looking for?

First, we are not a magical store. You can get your purchase enchanted at an establishment of your choosing, but we have no power beyond the emotions forged by song.  Now, what is the purpose of this music box?  Is it for a child or a loved one?  Perhaps you have an anniversary or another life event that this would be perfect for.  We have a wide selection of holiday styles and songs as well.  Our biggest seller there is . . . No, surprisingly it isn’t Christmas.  It’s Purim.  I was confused by that too, but I’m not one to say no to a trend that helps pay the rent.

Oh, a music box for a new baby is a genius decision.  Let me guide you to our nursery section.  Please ignore anything that goes off when you pass by.  Again, they aren’t magical, but have motion sensors.  Here we are!  The music boxes are divided into boys, girls, neutral, and twins and above.  That’s only for organization since you can change the color and give one of our music boxes to anyone.  As you can see, most of them are made out of metal, but we also have wood, plastic, and ceramic.  They are all wind up with a battery backup that you can activate by a hidden button.  Children will eventually reach an age where they want to set off the music themselves, but they lack the fine motor skills to turn a crank or key.  May I recommend this castle-shaped music box, which has many additions to choose from?

As you can see, you have various pegs that you can attach a variety of characters to.  They will move as the music plays to act out a scenario.  We will create a unique set of internal parts to get it right and do have the option for it to have up to three sequences.  Our characters include knights, princesses, princes, kings, queens, dragons, trolls, archers, lepers, executioners, peasants, plague rats, friars, paladins, and many others.  My personal favorite is the flock of chickens, but people do say the red eyes we paint on them make them oddly demonic.  Here is a book that will give you the full list.  Keep in mind that we have a five year warranty, but it can be extended.  That’s important because nobody can . . . Yes, I believe we should talk about the music.

Seeing that you are going with the castle, I would recommend something light and magical.  It can be harder if you pick the right characters, but most people choose a fairy tail type of theme.  We have classical composers and many modern artists have given us permission to use instrumental versions of their songs.  If you want anything with words then that will be extra because we would have to install a more electrical system than the gear-based one.  It takes more turns to charge up and you will have to depend a bit on the battery backup.  Of course, we have selections from that movie.  It would be silly to have a castle music box and not have that adventure.  We have a special set where you get the soundtrack and characters that can be installed.

We can go over the details later.  Enjoy looking around to make sure you have made the correct choice.  Here are some earpieces to listen to our music catalog.  Again, we have nothing magical in the store.  I cannot stress that enough because our lawyers are getting tired of handling those misunderstandings.  Good day.

    Great post! I’d love a castle music box! 😀 I would like music suitably epic.

    My first music box as a child had a ballerina and played a song I didn’t know at the time–“Lara’s Theme” from Doctor Zhivago. I finally saw that movie on TV later on when I was a teen and thought it was the most boring thing ever. (Saw it again as an adult and thought otherwise.) I then graduated to a music box that played the theme from The Godfather. Had another that played the theme from the movie Love Story.

    Remember, this is Not.a Magical Shop – Really!!!


  4. Do you have one that plays “Flight of the Valkeries” by Wagner? I’m needing to annoy my neighbors. This was fun, Charles.

    I would like a cave with a dragon that comes out as a hero rounds the hill. For music, Beethoven’s 5th please.
    I’ll take it to the nearest magic shop so the dragon can breathe flames.

  6. I’m really curious about the chickens now, I must admit.
