We really liked the Music Box Attic check-out process. You can choose a gift wrap, greeting card and even request customized engraving. Ground shipping is very affordable at only $4.99.

While prices are very competitive for similar products found at other music box stores, Music Box Attic also has a number of very high-end music boxes that are hard to find anywhere else.

Music Boxes & Musical Gifts



From $39.95 to $4,850

Music Boxes & Musical Gifts, a division of Worldwide Gifts, is a Tennessee based company that started in 2005. They offer a rather extensive line of music boxes, jewelry, figurines, collectibles, repair services and more. What they don't provide is an up-to-date and professional website that offers an enjoyable shopping experience.

The navigation of music boxes, at this online store, is a true challenge. Customers are asked to read and select one of maybe 65 categories to view the related selection. The categories are very refined and the results are hard to read with little detail. While the company says they offer personalization services, we found that is true only on a limited number of items.

On a positive note, their selection of quality music boxes is large. Shoppers will find animal, Christmas, instrument, religious and many other types of music boxes. Music Boxes & Musical Gifts also provides repair services and repair parts. Some of the gift items allow customers to customize by choosing from a list of 19 different songs, as well as, added engraving.

The return policy provides the shopper 30 days to return an item in new condition for a store credit. For customer questions or issues, the company only offers a none toll free phone number and shorter business hours for assistance.

Shipping is expensive at Music Boxes & Musical Gifts. Their ground shipping starts at $16.99 for the Midwest and was overpriced compared to the other companies we reviewed.

Unfortunately, Music Boxes & Musical Gifts provides a diverse selection of music boxes but the website and customer policies rated very low during our analysis. If you're in the market for a music box, we suggest you shop from a higher ranked company.
