    When the music plays, the mice on top by the machine moves one way and the ones under the machine moves the oposit way. Yes it is so cute. I almost never find any good deals and this is the closest to an old machine that I will ever get. Not a real one tho I did see a nice feather weight in an antique store not too long ago, but did not have the funds to make the purchase. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    It is darling. I can see why you had to buy it. It would be there very long.

    Very cute and don't worry about the SS checks, that is just a threat to scare old people.

    I wish I could be sure of that. It's all I have to depend on and after having heart surgery in March,,, I still have a few medical bills to pay. But that is about it. Us seniors and disabled people have worked hard for this as they took money out of every paycheck when we were working. It is so spooky. Any way, This little machine will make me smile when ever I look at it. It is sitting in my china cabinet now. I think I will fix me up a dish of ice cream and then take a shower and go to bed. Every one enjoy the rest of your day, Huggies, Fay... Oh the figurine is heavey too.
