Christmas Music Boxes
Music Boxes for Christmas Décor
Christmas music boxes are always a magical part of Christmas season and Christmas décor, and the fantastic and compelling sounds, and in many cases, figures related to them, are a major attraction for those captivated by the two working together.
Below I've included some photos of Christmas music boxes, which have figures set in place as well as animated figures moving to the music. You have everything from fantastic nativity scenes to Christmas music boxes based on the works of Thomas Kinkade.
There's not one of the music boxes below I don't like, and every one would have a place in my home if I just could make some more room from the overflowing Christmas decorations I already have.
Christmas music boxes are a wonderful addition to any Christmas decoration display, and including them will definitely add to the already great decorations you probably already have.

Thomas Kinkade Winter Wonderland Music Box
Below is the second of the Thomas Kinkade Christmas music boxes, and while it has a somewhat similar look as the one above, it's very different when you take in the detail, and the box itself, where the one below includes the image on the back of the opened cover. Very nice!
