The original MY-3 version has a music box in each draw, but MY-3-2 does not have any music boxes.


MY-3: "This product is composed of 3 drawers. When they are apart, you can't open at all. You need 3 drawers to open. How do you open? When you open the drawer, you can listen to the music box. (Excuse me to change the surface design.)" -Karakuri Creation Group

MY-3-2: "This is a remade version of the '3 Brothers'. This work is composed of 3 drawers. All 3 drawers are needed to open one drawer. Small pins are set to pile up the drawers in order. The mechanism is the same as the MY-3. But, the MY-3-2 doesn’t have music boxes." -Karakuri Creation Group
