A jack-in-the-box is a children's toy that outwardly consists of a box with a crank. When the crank is turned, it plays a melody, often "Pop Goes the Weasel". At the end of the tune there is a "surprise", the lid pops open and a figure, usually a clown or jester, pops out of the box.

Why won't Mattel Jack-In-The-Box pop up or play the melody?

I have a Mattel Jack-In-The-Music Box that when the handle is spun there is no sound and he doesn't pop up.... I am really interested in fixing this! I Googled "repairs for Jack in the Boxes" and that gave me little help. This does happen to be really random, but I need help! Any advice?!

Info on this toy is slight. At about 7:40 on this video it shows a rubber belt. In my mind this would probably harden and crumble over age, but the video may give you some clues.

Do you feel any resistance as you turn the handle or does it seem to turn freely? If you aren't feeling resistance then the gears are most likely not touching.

As I turn the handle it spins perfectly fine, but the little guy won't pop up or play a melody.


How can I repair this Jack in the Box if the gears aren't touching?
