Are toys which are not designated specifically for noise or music making, but do so in the process of being used, considered Muktzah?

  • Example: A toy train which makes sounds when moving.

If the toys are battery operated they are MM”I. If they are mechanical, then if they make music they are MM”I[1]. If they do not make music, just noise, they are not Muktzah.[2]

[1] As even children may not to play with such items. [Piskeiy Teshuvos 338 footnote 2]

[2] This applies according to all. [Mishneh Halachos 6/74 in name of Rav SZ”A rules they are not Muktzah, as since they are not Muktzah for children they are not Muktzah for adults.
