Got this little box at a garage sale way back when.... I think I paid a quarter for it, because the lady just wanted to finish with the sale and go back inside...
It's fun to watch people try to figure it out...lol
I put some mints (wrapped) in the secret compartment, as a "prize" for whoever manages to open it.

    My Grandmother had a box just like this one.There must have been about 20 little movements to some of the movable secret sections and at the end you discovered where the noise of a baby crying was coming from.Geff.
