"I purchased these years ago and reviewed them because they were such a departure from the quality I expect from the Smithsonian. These were the epitome of cheap. The music boxes came nonworking, failing, and one working. The painting execution looked like what you'd expect of a child. The boxes looked poor as well; the plastic had cured in such a way that some of the sides were bowed. Returned them all."

"A simply magical stocking stuffer that needs no batteries to delight both young and old."

"Well, they're made in China, so they're not the best quality. The music box is, thankfully, wind-up, so it's at least acceptable, but the painting on them is not high-quality. I get the feeling they're way overpriced. Nevertheless, they are cute, and will make someone happy as a stocking stuffer."
