Themusicboxman collects music boxes and musical toys from roughly 1945-1990, with an emphasis on Japanese music boxes, but also from many other Asian (excluding mostly China), European and American countries.

We hope that this collection on the Web will function as a kind of Virtual Museum (however incomplete) to show the many ways music boxes and musical toys were made in that period. The aim is to give a broad view of all kind of music boxes produced in 1945-1990, and leaving it to others, as there are, to collect only certain sub-collections in depth.

The Collection, as of December 2014, consists of:

5350 items, of which
approx. 4470 are Music Boxes (of which approx. 15% are Christmas boxes)
approx. 555 Musical Toys
approx. 260 Music Boxes For Sale
approx. 60 Musical Toys For Sale
In total 259 Sub-Collections.
