Singing magnet (“You Are My Sunshine”). From my personal collection.

Not exactly sure where I picked this up, but I love it. When I’m in the kitchen making dinner — or breakfast, or just grabbing a snack — I like to push the “nose” on this thing. Yeah, the music is tinny and electronic and maybe a little grating, but it’s such a happy song! Makes me smile, every time. 🙂

Thanks! Brenda

I honestly don’t remember! I’m pretty good at tracking where the smileys come from (partly because so many come from my mother or my mother-in-law), but I have so many that the origin of this one slips my mind. I’m pretty sure it was a gift, though. Maybe.

would you be willing to sell that singing smiley magnet to me?

Well, the battery has died and the song is tortured and terrifying now (I might play it during Halloween!), though if I was brave and technical-minded enough, I could probably crack it open and replace the battery. Maybe. I’ll give it a shot and let you know.

Do you know where I might be able to find one of these? I need one! It’s something special my boyfriend got from his grandmother who passed away when he was little. When he moved from new york he lost it. I’d like to get another one for him!

A number of people have asked, and I’ve been looking, but I’ve not found one yet at a regular retail site. I assume you’ve tried ebay?

Seriously. I need this magnet so badly I will buy it off of you.

Samuel Snoek-Brown - March 27, 2015

I’m loathe to part with it, but what are you offering? I’ve disassembled it and the battery is easy enough to replace, but I’ve not put it back together.

How much would you like for it? Could you possibly email me?

Does the magnet have a name of a manufacturer or company on it?

Carol Wright had them…worth writing them.

Carol Wright gifts had them. If we ALL write, maybe they’ll stock them or tell us where WE can get them.

They’re so happy, you’ll stick with ’em! Brightly colored plastic magnets are a wonderful way to attach notes, shopping lists, memos, recipes and photos to the ‘fridge. The large magnet plays “You Are My Sunshine” when touched. Mama: 3″ round. Babies: 1 1/2″ round. Set of 5.
