Jester in a Box - A charming toy for all ages.

The Jester in a box is a classic toy every family benefits in having. Turn the handle to create lilting music and when the tune finishes, a pleasantly smiling Jester pops out.

What then? Babies laugh with delighted surprise, toddlers want to take over turning the handle, older children come close for a better look and adults smile remembering the days they played with their own cherished Jack in the Box.

This Jester version is excellent. Made with remarkable attention to the details, you’ll appreciate the sturdy tin box with glossy, vibrant colors, the pleasantly sweet rendition of “Pop Goes the Weasel” which plays as the handle turns, the soft, darling little Jester that pops up and surprises everyone – yourself included. Just like an old fashioned music box, the melody sounds like lovely chimes.

A perfectly classy gift. A positively entertaining toy. Add a classic Jack in the Box toy to the family & it's sure to become a cherished possession.

    The recipient lives in another state and will be getting this for Christmas. If he's like my other grand children whom I've given jack-in-the-boxes to, he'll love it and want to play with it all the time. I had to "try" it several times myself before putting it down!

    Jack-In-The -Box
    Posted 3/10/2014 by Mike Dickinson

    Construction of the Jack In The Box is fine. No issues. It is difficult to get him back in his box, making it tough for a toddler. I have no problem with having to finish the tune for the mechanism to lock again. Our grandson seems to be more adept at pushing buttons as are on his other toys, so the crank is a new maneuver for him. After showing him the toy and getting it to open slowly and from a distance, I thought he would like it as he loves the "peek-a-boo" game. But when I start to turn the crank and play the tune, he will take it from me and put on the table and push it away. He seems to be warming up to it if I help him turn the crank with it open. We will be keeping the toy. We are sure as he learns to use it it will be played with more. Having to help him "load" it makes it an interactive toy with him and us. It is a vintage toy, just like we had as kids.

    Information about Jester in a Box
    Posted 11/26/2013 by Evelyn Walters

    The Jack in the Box is exactly what I wanted, made of metal and plays the traditional " Pop Goes The Weasel". I am very satisfied. It is an "old fashioned toy" but it delights my 3 year old grandson who has so many modern toys.

    No HD graphics necessary....touch pad activation..high tech programing or pages and pages of directions. Turn the crank....hear the tune...and watch your little grandchild laugh their head off when "Jack" does his thing. My grandchildren just love it!!! Give more 'old time' entertainment.
