Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a great choice. We received this as a gift for Christmas for our 18M old. I'm not sure why the age range is 18M+ as it's even difficult for our 4 year old to turn the dial to produce music. It will only play music for a couple minutes with the dial fully turned, which means our kids can't play with it independently. The music that it does produce doesn't even sound that great. I see the arm on this which is required to play music will break very shortly :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only ok I had the original as a child and Obviously the original is better. It looks the same and the music on the records is the same BUT, it isn't a music box. It's battery operated and made to sound like a music box. The updates are a little disappointing. My daughter loves it though. I'm grateful I still have my original!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from glad i bought I purchased this toy for my 2 year old a few months back and she loves it. I was very skeptical after reading some of the other reviews but decided to give it a try. True it may not be exactly identical to the original, however what can we really expect. At 2 years of age she does need some help working but that certainly isnt a deal breaker for us. All in all i recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO Disappointed My 15 month old loves this classic toy and enjoyed it a lot for 2 months until it BROKE. What a waste of $40. The arm is difficult to move off the record so I had to help him with that. It still turns but won't play music. He keeps asking me to fix it :(. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids love it! I almost didn't buy this based on all the negative reviews, but I'm so glad that I did. True, it has batteries, but my kids (ages 5, 3 and 1) absolutely love it!!! I can't believe how much my 5 and 3 year old love to change the records and sing along. It was by far the best Santa gift this year!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a bummer!! I was so excited to see this toy in an email I got this morning...I clicked on it right away to order one for my son. Then I saw the reviews. What a complete disappointment. I don't usually post messages like this but I'm hoping Fisher Price will see these and clue in not mess around with the classics. They may as well take it off the shelves...anyone who knows this original is NOT going to buy this imposter. Way to go Fisher Price. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh no! I wanted the classic! I was quite ready to buy this but read the reviews before I did so. Thank goodness I did. Why would Fisher Price change an obviously fantastic toy? The wind up version eliminated the need for batteries making it far more environmentally friendly. I'll try to find the original, wind up toy on Ebay. Thanks for the warning Amy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing electronic replica The original was a real wind-up music box and the records had dots to play the notes on the metal tines in the record 'head'. This version is electronic and needs 3AA batteries. The records only serve to tell the box which tinny-sounding file to play (no dots - the photos lie). Plus the head is hard to move off the record. I was so excited when I saw they'd reissued this toy that I got two, one for a gift and one for my own child. I will be sending them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been waiting for this to reappear! This was a family favourite at the cottage, growing up. Glad it's back in action! Kids will love changing the "records" and dancing around.
