Finds & Treasures: Totoro Music Box

Anime is not usually my thing, but My Neighbor Totoro is one of my favorite animated movies.  The loveable, fuzzy creatures and plot all about family love stuck with me all these years.  I hadn't watched it since I was a kid and kept meaning to revisit it until last month.  Some sad news in my life gave my boyfriend an idea to watch it.  It made me feel loads better and he got to see it for the first time.

Fast forward to Christmas and what did he get me?  A moving music box thing of Totoro!  Wind it up for the theme song while the pulley mechanism moves Totoro's umbrella and some characters around in the clear cylinder.  I guess you could call it a music box, but it doesn't hold anything.  (There are other versions of it in other Studio Ghibli projects, too if you search Amazon or eBay.)

The music box sits on my desk under my lamp (next with Mjolnir, naturally).
Do you have a music box, or did you have one as a kid?  Have you watched My Neighbor Totoro?  (My god, if you haven't GET ON THAT!)  Let me know in the comments!
