Ye Merrie Minstrel caroling Christmas bells are a set of electronic musical Christmas decorations produced by the Hong Kong company Capricorn Electronics Ltd.


The bells were popular Christmas decorations manufactured by Capricorn Electronics under the trade name ‘Ye Merrie Minstrel’ during the 1990s. The set featured 12 bells that could be strung up around a Christmas tree or other locations as a decoration.

Each bell was a different size, and featured a small electronic striker that would create a perfect tone note. The set was pre-programmed with the tunes of up to 47 different Christmas carols, which would be played by the striking bells.


The set originally retailed for around $100, but second-hand sets in good working condition can now be found on sites such as eBay for between $15 - $40.
