“We all know how very wonderful and endearing mechanical music boxes are. Whether you are a child or a grown adult, porcelain music boxes are the perfect gift. They are beautiful but they are something terrific that you can hold on to and treasure for a lifetime.
The options are almost endless when it comes to the different types of porcelain music boxes that are out there. Whether you are interested in sports, ballerinas, animals…anything you can think of you would be able to find in a music box.
However, no matter which type of porcelain music boxes you get, you are going to need to make sure that you know how to properly take care of them, so that they will last you and stay looking great.
One of the first and most important things to know is that you should never use any chemicals on your porcelain music boxes. This is really important because if you use chemicals you may end up tarnishing the finish, especially if it is an antique. Instead, you should purchase the specialty cleaners that are gentle and safe to use on porcelain and keep your music box in peak condition.
You should also dust your porcelain music boxes regularly with a very fluffy feather duster, because if you let dust sit too long on your music box it will end up tarnishing it and possibly permanently staining it.
Try to dust on a somewhat regular basis, at least once every couple of weeks, and more frequently if you have a very dusty home. To help this situation, you can keep your music box behind glass or in another sort of containment area where it will not be able to get so dusty.
If you take proper care of your music box it will last you for a lifetime, and will probably even be in good enough condition where you will be able to hand it down to your children. Kids love music boxes, especially if they have a theme that they adore.
There are some terrific retailers out there that you can visit if you are interested in finding a music box. The Disney music boxes are particularly popular and perfect for kids. Do they have a favorite Disney movie? Beauty and the Beast or Cinderella perhaps? If so you can find a music box of this theme and which they will absolutely adore.”
