Inscription on the front: PlaRola ORGAN-If you can breathe, you can PlaRola
Includes 3 music rolls (1 is already in place inside the instrument)
FUNCTIONING: To listen to music, the instrument has a simple mechanism - after inserting a roll of pierced paper inside, blow in the mouthpiece which is on the back part and simultaneously turn one of the two handles. There is one for playing music and another for rewinding the roll.
The principle is that the air comes out through the holes in the paper which allows the air to escape and in this way produce the sound.
