"There was a musical box that emitted a faintly sinister, tinkling tune when wound, and they all found themselves becoming curiously weak and sleepy until Ginny had the sense to slam the lid shut."
—The powers of this music box[src]

An enchanted music box, when opened, would emit a sinister music that would cause all who were listening to suddenly become sleepy.[1]

History

In August of 1995, when cleaning 12 Grimmauld Place, the Weasleys, Harry Potter and Hermione Granger found the box, opened it, and suddenly felt sleepy, and would have fallen asleep had Ginny Weasley not had the sense to close the box.[1]
