Toyella fell in love with this music ball the moment we saw it. It makes an ideal nursery accessory or Christening gift but will appeal to all ages.

A turn of the large elegantly shaped key magically produces one of Mozart‘s melodies from inside the solid oak ball. The 18-note chime is ‘Voi che sapete’ from ‘Marriage of Figaro’ and plays whether the ball is still on a shelf or rolling across the floor.

Listen to the melody: 'Voi che spate' by Mozart

Manufactured by big in Germany in a village on the edge of the Black Forest, the chime is mounted inside premium oak that has been fashioned into a perfect sphere. Children and adults alike will love to handle the finely finished music ball and listen to the sound of the melody within.

The only hole in the ball is where the wind-up key enters and although the mechanism remains totally hidden the music will always escape the boundaries of the oak case.

A 20mm diameter metal ring can sit unseen underneath the ball to allow it to rest still on a shelf or mantlepiece.

The New York Times selected Mozartkugel as ‘must-have’ while on show in the MoMA Stores.
