This is a beautiful jewlery box; one of the best I've seen. Good musical jewelry boxes are difficult to find these days, especially for a child.

I hemmed and hawed over buying this and one of the ones made of re-enforced cardboard or plastic, but my decision became easy when I saw some of the 'cheaply' made ones at a couple of toy stores nearby. This Lenox product was an excellent buy: metal, nice velour innards, sturdy ballerina and hinges. I'm considering buying one for my teen daughter and engraving her name on it.

My niece (5 yrs old) had received 4 ballerina jewelry boxes for Christmas, so she wasn't as thrilled with getting another when she unwrapped the one from me. My sister was thrilled though. She said she will keep the box for my niece until the others (plastic and paper) break, which won't take too long. LOL

I bought three of these boxes for my grandchildren although I was concerned by some reviews suggesting that the ballerina mechanism was faulty. One of my grandchildren has wanted a music box for a long time and kept reminding me so I thought I'd give her one and I thought I'd better buy one for her sisters too. I gave my grandchildren the boxes the day before I left for overseas and of course, what happened was the child who really wanted a music box received the one with a ballerina that didn't work. She was in tears until her father (an engineer) managed to fix it. However, I doubt that the mechanism will last so I wouldn't recommend these boxes. I would have thought that, given the adverse feedback about the mechanism, the company would have taken action to fix the problem.

I was considering buying this for my daughter but I had trouble deciding because I couldn't see the top of the box in any pictures here. I looked online and saw that the top is a silver heart like in the front. I went ahead and bought this and I was not disappointed. It's looks very fine and I really like it. I am planning to have my daughter's name engraved on it.

I was a little wary reading the reviews almost expecting a broken box, but....it arrived and was absolutely exquisite for $30. Everything worked and the balleria turned without a hitch. I rated this 4 stars because I noted that as soon as I opened it, it smelled of paint. I recommend that if you decide to order this, pull it out, and let it air out. Make sure it works and looks perfect before giving it as a gift. That would be my intuition anyway with ANY product without even reading the previous reviews...I don't know why people don't inspect their purchases before giving them as a gift.

It is a sturdy metal box; I'm confident that it will probably last for a few years at least.

FYI I ordered this on Amazon due to the quick ship option, though Lenox is offering the same box for the same price, but longer shipping time. Also, the box is fully customizable by engravable name via Lenox and not Amazon.

The box is still beautiful without the engraving, and I am still quite happy with it!

This is a gorgeous jewelry box. I was searching for one for my new granddaughter, and am so glad that I chose this one by Lenox. My grandson couldn't stop staring at the dancing ballerina! Everyone loved it. It's definitely a keeper! Highly recommend this product. Outstanding craftsmanship and quality.

Lenox Childhood Memories Ballerina Jewelry BoxI got this for Mackenzie's 7th birthday and she loved it; I even got a sweet letter thanking me for it!
I looked at hundreds of jewelry boxes and finally I found this one. I am so glad I waited until I found this perfect one. The quality is fantastic. I believe it is something that a girl could keep her entire life. It has plenty of room for your treasures and it looks stunning while holding them!
I highly recommend this jewelry box.

Ordered 2 boxes for my granddaughters. One arrived broken. I returned that box and ordered another. Second box's ballerina had the same problem. Ballerina stops turning while music continues to play. Then the music stops and nothing works.
The paint smell when you open the box is overpowering and unattractive. Even after I left the box open for hours, it still smelled.
Two out of three boxes arrived broken. Doesn't Lenox have any quality control?
I give up. I'm ordering a game for her DS.

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter. I wanted her to have her first ballerina jewelry box because I remember my first one. She LOVED it. The storage is perfect for her. She loves the ballerina. I love the pink inside and the outside of the box is beautiful. I wish it would have the option of engraving, but even without it, it's a perfect little girl's jewelry box.

I bought this for my 5 year old niece for her birthday. When it arrived I thought it was beautiful (and it was). When my daughter gets older I would like to have a jewelry box like this for her. It's worth the money. The reason I'm only rating this as a 2 star is because when I unwrapped it, I realized it didn't wind up and play music like it should. Also, I wasn't given the option by amazon to exchange it for a new one. I didn't have enough time to order a new one so I had to get my niece something else. It was disappointing. This is the only time I have had to return something I have ordered from Amazon. I hope I won't have to do it again!
