Hear the bagpipes a callin’
Ah, dance with lil o’me
There be a stirrin’
In the moonlight be.

Take me by the hand ta twirl
Such a jig be done
Ta day T'was deep in magic's glow
How we had such fun.
Oh ye girls dancing of ever types;
Moving to the hypnotic pipes.

Difficult to find in such immaculate order, this wonderfully nostalgic toy plays after inflating the inner bag as you would a balloon. The build quality is high with the pipes all carved and hand painted and the condition is superb, with the beautiful box and original instructions all in tact.

Whether intending to use or just admire, this set of bagpipes ye won’t tire.
