Over the past eight centuries or so, the type of instrument here called "hurdy-gurdy" has been known by multiple names within many different languages. Furthermore, the English term "hurdy-gurdy" has been applied to all sorts of things, even to some having nothing to do with music. These factors have led to persistent confusions, the most common being that a hurdy-gurdy is a barrel-organ - a machine, stereotypically accompanied by a monkey with a tin cup, that produces repetitive music by the turning of a crank.
Thus this little boy's noise-maker ... and this hand-held sewing device, are ...
NOT hurdy gurdies, despite popular parlance.
