I think the teapot is:

Record(s) - i.e. Vinyl records and World Records

First Hint:

Drop a vinyl record, it'll likely break, they are easy to chip, etc.
It is hard to break a world record, you need to be an elite athlete (for example)

Second Hint:

A vinyl contains music
Records can be attached to anything, even dumb things.

Third Hint:

There are manyold formats similar to the vinyl records, maybe stretch, but like the Piano roll
(Note: I guess I misread this one since my answer isn't correct) Records are a historically kept, much longer than most technology still in use.

Final Hint:

The CD is a more modern vinyl.
Siblings fight over "records," causing fights? (This one is definitely a stretch)
