hurdy gurdy

In Fun

By: Cole Gullison This is a vintage soothing music box to help a baby to sleep. The name of this music box is a Hurdy Gurdy. It was made by Creative Playthings toy company, which was established in 1945. It was worth $20.00 when it was produced and now sells for $80.00.It was my great aunts and then my other great aunt and then was passed down to my mom and then it was my brother. It plays a song named swan lake. It is a hand cranked player. The way it plays is as you crank it a metal cylinder with little studs on it press down and let go of a strip of metal and depending on the metal length and thickness, it will play different songs.
