Howerver, for you who have seen one of these amazing little pieces play, you know there is nothing like watching their synchronized movements to music! Send me videos .....

Home on the Range Enesco Musical
Home on the Range: It's strawberry season in the mouse kitchen, and the mice are whipping up a batch of pies. All figures move to the music:
Enesco: One mouse mixes eggs, balanced atop the egg beater. Another mouse rides a spoon, stirring batter which is flattened by a rolling pin with mouse on top. Next, berries are pressed through a grinder, and mice teeter-totter on a spatula as the head chef removes pastries from the glowing oven.

Another fascinating Small World of Music creation from Enesco artist Karen Hahn.

Working For Peanuts Enesco Musical
Workin' for Peanuts:
A Circus Wagon features the Circus Band from Old Mapleton-Oconomowoc, Wic. Everything you need for a circus: a panda, giraffe, elephant, mouse, dog, parrot, monkey, and a calliope circus wagon. Movement: The calliope pipes on both sides of the wagon move up and down as the music box pipes out the tune “Talk to the Animals.” The mouse in the rear seat turns back and forth as if to greet the circus audience; the circus wagon rolls to and fro; the lantern (battery powered) on the wagon glows; the panda, giraffe, and elephant turn their heads back and forth, all in beat to the music.
NOTE: The elephant should have a bunch of balloons tied to his trunk, but they are missing in this photo.

In The Good Old Summertime  Enesco Musical
In the Good Old Summertime
This is the only remaining Enesco music box we have. I was about to list it for sale on eBay and enjoying the charming scene of this mouse picnic when I noticed that the little mouse on the picnic cloth was missing his body.

continued --

I didn't have the heart to list it with a missing piece, thinking maybe someday I will find the little missing mouse.

I'm not quite sure of its Enesco title and inventory number, but I nicknamed it for the tune it plays, In the Good Old Summertime.

The canopy sways back and forth overhead to the music. Mmomma mouse reads to two attentive mice, while three playful mice scamper around the bonnet brim.
It's a perfect piece, trimmed in flowers and butterflies, with a doily canopy held in place by four hat pins, each pin with a unique design.
Another marvelous musical from Enesco! Its original price in gift stores, $179.95.


Q. I'm still looking for the missing mouse Top. Does anyone have this same Enesco musical?
