Description: This is an all-plastic music box with a toy clock on one side. The clock has 2 movable arms with an hour hand that moves to the next hour when child turns the minuite hand completely around the clock. This is one of the few toy clocks with an hour hand that moves correctly like a real clock enabling children to get a realistic idea of how to tell time.

The clock remained basically the same throughout it's production, but several little variations do exist: the music box mechanism can be either Swiss or Japanese, the bead on the antenna can was wood on older music boxes and plastic on the newer ones. Older music boxes have a red rim around the clock face cover and new ones do not. Older music boxes have a single arrow line on the music box wind-up know and newer music boxes have a double arrow. Pay special attention to these little differences to make sence of all the variations listed below.

Other Information:
  • FP107SWISSSET1971 - Complete set sold in original 7-3/8" long, 6-3/16" high, 2-1/4" deep box. WFL: 07-AG-26-4-C
  • This toy was originally designed to have a red painted rim around the plastic face of the clock, as shown in the top photo and described in "Variations" above. One night the manufacturing plant ran out of the red paint used to make the rim, yet produced the music clocks anyway. The next day the toy's designer saw that they toy was not made as it was designed, as the red rim covers the hinges that attach the clear face to the rest of the music box. When Henry Fisher (Fisher-Price President at the time) heard about the issue, he took one of each clock (one with the red rim and one without) and showed them to all of the workers in the office. He asked each worker if they could see any difference between the two clocks. No one was able to recognize the difference. From that day forward, the clocks were no longer made with the red rim around the clock's face.
  • The words to the song are printed on the back litho as follows:

Hickory Dickory Dock
The mouse ran up the clock;
The clock struck 1
The mouse ran down;
Hickory Dickory Dock.
