The musical handbell crackers are available for the Christmas holdidays. Order now for December 2016 Christmas delivery.


These fun and tuneful bells are QUALITY designed to provide your family with musical entertainment and laughter for many years to come. They are truly well-made in both construction and tone. If you decide to purchase the bell crackers - or have in the past - please keep in touch with this web page as we regularly update it with new music and other information. The Cracker Elves want you to get as much enjoyment out of these wonderful musical instruments as possible!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  These are full-sized handbells with full, clear tonal qualities - easy to ring and not similar to the mini-bells you will find in some commercially produced crackers which have received reviews for being "out of tune".  The bells we use in our crackers ring with clear tones and will last your family for many years of merry musical fun ahead.

:: 1 quality musical handbell
:: 1 Holiday activity pack with puzzles, trivia and games and jokes; puzzle pencil & eraser included.
:: 1 holiday candy

We make a very limited number of Musical Handbell crackers each year. Please order early in the year to ensure Christmas delivery.

ONE small FREE handbell music book is included with each order. You may copy this and/or download additional music from web sources or ask at your local library. We also have some music available for copying from the links below.

Due to the oversized (humungous!) cracker tubes to accomodate each handbell, shipping may cost more than our regular crackers - depending on your delivery destination. You will be billed separately If there are any additional shipping costs. Please order early to allow us to make up your handbells order and to ship them out to you at the most economical rate.
