Tiny Music Box is an Item in Bloodborne.

tiny_music_box.jpg "A small music box received from a young Yharnam girl.

Plays a song shared by her mother and father.

Inside the lid is a small scrap of paper, perhaps an old message. Two names can be made out, however faintly, Viola and Gascoigne."

Tiny Music Box Usage

  • When used in the fight against Father Gascoigne, it is possible to trigger the beast phase of the fight before he gets to one-third health. Human Gascoigne also staggers, when he hears the box's music.
  • Using the box during the Beast Phase will also stagger him, giving you a chance to use your Molotov Cocktails.
  • When used in the fight against Mergo's Wet Nurse, it will make her sidestep.



  • Gascoigne's daughter will give you the music box.
  • She gives you the music box after or before you defeat Father Gascoigne.
  • She will NOT give you the box after you defeat Vicar Amelia
  • Using the music box when you have Gascoigne summoned will cause him to chuckle. He only does this the first time he hears it.
  • After Gascoigne is defeated, a red brooch can be returned to his daughter which will complete the quest. Refusing to give her the brooch will also result in this quest-line's completion.


  • The song heard is a short clip from the Mergo's Wet Nurse boss theme.
  • It is possible to obtain a box in every ng+ which will permanently take up a storage space as it carries over every time you go on a new ng+ level and cannot be discarded sold etc. (As of Patch 1.07, the music box must be re-acquired per playthrough)

      This page should have the audio clip from the Music Box and provide a link if possible to audio of the Winter Lanterns' singing and the Wet Nurse theme.

        If you activate this item in chalice dungeon rooms where there is a big bell, it will actually ring the bell just like it would if you were to hit the bell.

          POSSIBLE LATE GAME SPOILERS05 Jul 2016 14:54  

          I heard using the tiny music box after defeating Mergo's Wet Nurse whilst the baby is crying will instead make it laugh. Has anyone done this to confirm/deny the occurrence? <br/>Could tie in to the music box playing a similar tune to Mergo's Wet Nurse theme.

              Mergo's lullaby?05 Jul 2016 14:54  

              I wonder if there's a lore connection between the music box and Mergo...I don't buy that it is just a coincidence.

                Is the music box a consumable?05 Jul 2016 14:54  

                That is to say if you fail to kill him in one life will it be used up after a certain number of uses?

                  As you know you can summon him with a beckoning bell before you fight the cleric beast. If you use the music box he laughs. I tried taking him to his daughter, but nothing happened :( <br/>-Dyralvex
