5-0 out of 5 stars Great "old style" toy.
Thought the toys I had as a child were lost forever, however this one comes very close! Solid tin box with very happy looking clown and the obligatory "pop goes the weasel"! My daughter loves it.

My Son's New Favorite Toy
My son LOVES this toy. He is 2 1/2 and it only took him a time or two to figure out how to get Jack back in the box by himself. He plays with it all the time, and never fails to get excited when Jack jumps out at him. You don't have to completely finish the song to get jack back in, you just have to make sure the song finishes the "pop" note. The music is a very traditional music box sound, and not annoying in the least. We suspected he would love a jack in the box, and had trouble finding one that worked well. This one is fantastic.

Love it and leave it
This is a great toy...for a small amount of time. After a minute or two my son gets bored of it because it only does one thing and only plays one tune. Not great for younger kids because jack is hard to get back into the box and I think the young ones will have a hard time (sometimes I have a hard time...lol). Not worth the money I spent on it, but still a fun toy...and a classic.

Great, Old Fashioned Fun!
This toy has a beautiful look and is very sturdy---made of metal, not plastic. The music sounds wonderful and both our sons love it! So do we---Mom and Dad! We are very happy with this toy, there is no other like it. Made the old fashioned way---to last. Bright colors and such a cute clown. I have not seen one like this since I was a little girl---many years ago! Well worth the money spent. Get one!

there is a trick to getting it to "reload" that is too hard
In order to put jack back in the box it must be in between songs. If you try to relatch it once the music has begun it doesn't work. That is clearly stated in the instructions but is very difficult for a one or a two year old to understand.

I feel that the kids who enjoy this the most are babies through age two. The sad thing is that the "reloading" of Jack is nearly impossible for these aged children. Even when they "get" how to push Jack down, hold him there, close the lid and snap the tiny latch, they have difficulty stopping the music at the exact point in which "reloading" is possible. All kids I've seen use it love to continue to wind the crank and make the music continue.

Perhaps they could redesign it so that the music won't play until Jack is back in the box. Then the kids would understand when to put Jack back in the box.

I bought this when my first born was one year old and he loved the toy but became frustrated with putting Jack back in the box.
The challenge with "reloading" extended to my second child and for every child-visitor. Frustration abounds! The only way to successfully use this with the very young to avoid tantrums is for the adult to sit with the child and help them as they need it. When they were very young and most-upset about this, I put it on a high shelf until the next time.

When my first turned three he finally "got it" and was able to play with it by himself.

The beauty of this is that it has a classic look. Other jack in the boxes I've seen have TV characters on them or other non-traditional characters. Also I like the "Pop goes the weasel" tune. I have seen others with different songs and even with electronic sounding music---YUCK!

We've owned this for over 4 years and it has not broken yet. The paint is in very good shape, it is not peeling from some defect (as others have reported). Most times now it is not stuck on a high shelf, so it is played with often. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Your child probably doesn't know Lawrence Welk or the accordion he toted around so famously for years. That should work in the favor of this sturdy, enjoyable instrument. Compact and well built, this starter instrument is a great introduction to the accordion--or just a lot of ephemeral fun. The accordion fits nicely into the palms of an adult's hands, but isn't too unwieldy for its target audience. The number of keys are minimized for ease of use and simplicity, but it's still possible to crank out a complex favorite such as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" (a brief "basic instructions" leaflet is enclosed) only 10 minutes after the instrument's out of the box. --Keith Simanton ...

4-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!
This was a Xmas present for my children. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the sound quality - quite realistic! It is very durable. The bellows are constructed of paper but it is very heavy-duty. It does, however, require some muscle to expand and coordination to use the buttons - so it is better for an older child.

4-0 out of 5 stars fun little accordion
I, too, was surprised at the quality of sound of this instrument. It's also fun to play and easy to navigate -- you a/o your child will soon be picking out tunes with a minimum amount of practice. The only reservations I have are: 1) there are only three songs included in the instruction sheet; and 2) the accordion is designed for right-handed individuals; however, the thumb strap on the key side that could probably be removed and re-applied in order to make it playable by left-handers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprized
I was very pleased with this item. I had not expected such a nice tone from it. My 6 year old grandson was giving "concerts" the same night he opened his present. Amazingly, his "music" is quite nice to hear. This is definitely not another "noise making" toy. You will like it very much.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rockin' Accordion
I've had this accordion for about a year and a half, and every time I pull it out and play a tune, I have far too much fun. While I'd like to be able to play recognizable tunes other than the 3 that came with the accordion, improv is a buch o' fun, and just about anything you do will sound good. I am 18 years old, and it still entertains me, so I'm sure it will be even more fun for younger kids.

4-0 out of 5 stars Accordion Reviewed
This accordion doesn't look too classy in its construction and manufacture. However, the sound is strong and it does sound like an accordion. I'm just worried that the pleated section, which is constructed out of paper may puncture, although the creases are reinforced by some strong tape. As I have yet to give the item, I really don't know how long the same will last if played by a 3-4 year old. ... Read more

Editorial Review

"For moi?!" Miss Piggy, with her fondness for finery andher passion for performance, is the star of every show (of course!)with this playset. She can indulge her porcine fancy with 10 differentensembles that take her from the swashbuckling swine of MuppetTreasure Island to Cleopatra with equal ease. All her imaginativetrappings are made of MagiCloth, a lightweight, sturdy fabric that isattracted to magnets. It doesn't rip or wrinkle easily, and won't sendyour kid running for the scotch tape "because the scissors didn't goright." Just lay the chosen outfit over the Miss Piggy magnet, andvoila! She's dressed! Everything's cut out already: no tiny tabs tofold, and you don't even have to search for an envelope to keep thingsorganized--the packaging doubles as a carrying case. The set includes a6-by-9-inch magnet play mat on which Piggy can strut her stuff, be itbeach baby or blushing bride. A great choice for creative play, an easytake-along for car trips--and it sure dresses up the refrigerator door!--Julie Ubben ... Read more
