 "I think I remember the king saying that he would love to have some music in the castle. I think that is what the second gift might be about…what could it be?"

After a few more minutes, Toby remembered something else. 
"Wait!" he said. "The king also told me that he might need a cage for this gift, too." 

Can you think of something that belongs in a cage and makes music?
