This is a charming little shop filled with music boxes, Christmas ornaments and other decorative items! The shopkeeper/owner was so friendly and helpful since we were staying nearby she gave us restaurant recommendations. It's full of really unique and beautiful items. I highly recommend to stop in and check it out. Very close to Notre Dame and the Siene.

On a recent trip to Paris we happened upon this enchanting shop. I highly recommend this to all travelers to Paris. It is a magical little shop crammed full of sweet toys, there is something to catch your eye in every square inch! Also the items in the shop are all natural materials, no plastics in here! You can find a very unique perhaps even one of a kind item in this shop to bring home. The shopkeeper/owner was an absolute doll. I chose a music box for my son easily but asked her to choose ones for my teenage daughters who did not come on this trip. I asked her to choose songs that were Parisian. She was more than delighted to choose two songs that were composed in Paris. Even calling up the songs on YouTube for me so I could show my daughters the songs being performed. Visiting this shop was a delight and and experience we will remember!!

I read the reviews online before visiting but the experience was much better than I expected. This tiny shop somehow managed to fit so many different kinds of wonderful music boxes. The shop owner was more than helpful in picking out a gift to bring back. She was so patient and let me play with so many different musical boxes so that I could choose the right one for myself. Only thing was, I am a student so I don’t have much to spend, and this is a true music box collection store so the prices are more than what was in my budget. Nevertheless after hearing that she was still so nice and understood my predicament. I bought a small one in the end for around 17 euros but I’ll be sure to come back next time when I start earning and happen to be in Paris.

My husband and I visited the Latin quarter in February and we stumbled upon this treasure of a shop, near the Norte Dame. My advice is to save your money from the regular old souvenir stores and stop into this magical little find. I love my little music box (Clair de Lune). Friendly personal local owner who was happy to help and speak to us, thank you again. Perfect presents for kids, wives, girlfriends, moms, etc....

This is one of the most beautiful and unique shops in Paris. It’s very fun to look at all the amazing, unbelievable assortment of music boxes, ornaments, etc. The owner, Saadia, is a very kind and thoughtful person. And she is multilingual. She took the time to tell us about the easiest and best way navigate our way around Paris. Meeting her was a highlight of our trip to France.

I visited the shop with my friends after i had searched for a toy shop in Paris and i think it is a must-see for those who want to buy souvenirs or gifts or original toys. It is very close to the Notre Dame and easy to find. You should see every corner of the store and you will spend hours there. You will find a marvelous world of collection toys. And the store owner is a very lovely and helpful woman as well. 🎪🛍

It´s a very small place but full of joy! There are toys for the old, the young, for everybody really! So interesting, cute, cozy! All the products are hand made, from many artisans all over Europe, the owner is especially nice and entertaining too. So, if you are near Notre Dame, St Michel or really...if you are in Paris, this is an amazing gift shop for you or your loved ones, for souvenirs too!

A hidden gem in the Paris streets for music boxes lovers and enthusiastic folks. A very rich exhibition of all kinds of tiny music devices in a vast variety of original forms and colors. The shop is located nearby Notre Dame on the west bank. Easy to find and easy to get to. The owner will charmingly welcome you and will be happy to search for any specific melody, tour you around the numerous variety of pieces in the shop while also offering a nice chat at the same time. Lovely. We had a great time and carried with us some nice memories from that visit.

Last Sunday afternoon, November 10, 2019 my mother and I visited this store for the very first time. I wanted to get wonderful Parisian music boxes for myself and my best friend. I read reviews on this store and so when I planned my very first trip to Paris I knew I had to come here! When we arrived at the store it looked like it was half closed since the metal door was halfway up. The hours listed it as open and so I knocked on the door like crazy. I flew all the way from New Jersey to visit this store and I really wanted to see it. The owner saw me begging her to open the door. She was about to go on her dinner break until I showed up. She was so nice to open the store and let us in. When I entered inside I was amazed! Beautiful music boxes, ornaments and more! I was looking for a music box for myself that played "la vie en rose". She pulled out a brand new wooden music box that was made in northern France, near the border of Switzerland. It was so beautiful and played the song! She also helped me find a music box for my best friend who also just got married. We got her a music box with a photo of a couple holding hands and the song that played was "What a wonderful world "! The owner was so nice to my mom and I, explained and showed us so many nice things! She was so sweet and amazing! She even gave us a Christmas ornament to take home to the USA! The store owner was so sweet, helpful and kind. I'm so grateful for her beautiful heart. The music box I bought is so special that I'm going to pass it down to my children and grandchildren one day. When I return to Paris one day I will definitely visit this store again. Thank you again for everything!

While walking back to our apartment I noticed this tiny shop selling music boxes. When I stepped inside the sheer magnitude of charming music bores, small exquisite ornaments and various trinkets, all high quality. The real treasure was the shop owner who was so sweet and kind to this tourist. I purchased almost all my souvenirs from this tiny shop, knowing I was taking home quality gifts to my loved ones. Of course there was more than a few for me. Definitely worth visiting.
