My boyfriend had been talking about this music box for a while. I bought it for him kinda skeptical, but I knew it would make him happy. When he played it for the first time I listened in awe. It has an absolutely gorgeous and strong sound, and there's no crackling or skipping, as most music boxes do! And the box itself does not open (to my knowledge) but its slightly more pink and much more glossy in person. Very pretty to sit on a bedside table, vanity, or dresser. It also has 4 legs on the bottom so it can stand on surfaces.
I already have the music box for "Zanarkand" from FFX, so I knew the overall quality and value for money was great. I wasn't disappointed this one is excellent too! As another reviewer has said, the only small thing to nitpick about, is that those melodies are rather short.
