engeln offered a unique approach for the app icon that stood ahead of most competitors due to its clever idea and clear messaging. She was willing to explore the design in different ways based on suggestions and converted them into a simply beautiful image that will grab attention and curiosity. Also due to her perfect English, the designers' communication is on point.
Great Job! Thanks

The app icon should give the general idea that we're dealing with a music box app (musical box), it should contain or resemble either a musical box or typical elements of a music box (pins, teeth, comb, cylinder etc.), just google pictures to look up 'little musical box' if you're not sure what exactly it means.
I don't want to set boundaries for your creativity, just come up with your idea and I will gladly provide feedback. The color/color palette is up to you, the app can easily be adjusted if your icon is awesome.
Just so you know a little more about the app (This does not need to be reflected in the icon!): The app provides unique functionality in that it doesn't just play back a recording, but it performs typical music box arrangements of lullabies/traditionals/classical/children's songs in real time emulating the sound and behaviour of a real music box while the user can adjust the musical key, the tempo and lots of other parameters.
As an update: Please no dancers.
Update 2: Please avoid common symbolism as musical notes etc. (sorry to everyone who included those, I thought I had mentioned it here but I must have overlooked it.)
If you're not sure where to start, here's some inspiration. You can try to show a music box in whole in a simplistic way or just concentrate on parts of it in a more abstract and iconic way. This is just a google search showing some of the parts of a music box. Make sure all elements in your design are visible in small sizes as well.
