Man! Where the heck did all those come from? Try selling them on ebay,
I bet that music box enthusists will snap 'em up like unattended $20
bills. Are they cylinders, or flat like records?

Here are a few uses for them:
(assuming they are cylinders)

Build a music box

Sell them as "novelty back massagers"

Use them as hair curlers

Mount one and claim it came from Roswell

Use to make strange looking cookies

Paint them green and sell as "Genuine Petrified Cactus"

Use as a weapon

Cut into slices and make bumpy wheels

Have fun, and good luck selling or using them! :-)

Hi,

Such disks move very well on eBay. You might want to have a look there
and see what the prices have been.

Is the polyphone the same gizmo that ice cream trucks used to use?  I recall
as recently as ten or so years ago seeing a similar device (as shown on
Ebay) on the floor of an ice cream truck as I was buying a frozen treat.

(Speaking of which, what do the ice cream vendors use today?  The music
still sounds the same.)

My guess is a tape loop, or even a CD player set on
"repeat"...hell for all you know it could be an MP-3 player....but if
they still manufacture Polyphones, I'd love to find out where to get
one with the Mister Softee music (don't start with the Viagra jokes).

As for some other companies, I've heard what sounds like the stuff
that comes out of those musical greeting cards...I think it's MIDI?
And still others use a little rack of bells tied to a string that the
driver pulls as he drives down the street.
