Little Bugs Music Box

This wooden music box provides simple pleasure: wind it up and watch two small ladybugs whirl to the lilting tune, via a magnet underneath their little stage. Bright and folksy, this toy has none of the bells and whistles of the typical preschool toy, and yet little kids tend to want to wind it up again and again for an encore. A cheerful, back-to-basics way to pass the time and a great way to ward off a grumpy morning. (Schylling, $13.62)
