When son Dan was a kid, we’d wind up the Fisher-Price Happy Birthday music box and let it play for each person in the family. It took the place of the traditional crank one Mom played when my sister and I were little.
She also played it over the phone to us when we were grown. After each time she played the tune forward, she’d wind it backward just for fun. She eventually wore out the thing.
But yes, I can still hear the tune forward and backward.
Sis Gloria’s note: “Give to me by Grpa/Grma Neal 1952?”
“Quit working June 4, 2010.” It must have given up while Mom was playing it for me.
