Description: Fisher-Price introduced its very first music box "TV Radio" in 1959 with the #148 Jack And Jill TV Radio. The creative music box not only plays a beautiful tune, but it also displays colorful pictures that depicts the song that it plays. To add to the realism, the music box has two knobs on the front, one of which makes the antenna move up or down. Sadly, the retractable antenna and control knob were omitted by Easter 1960. This music box was available with either a Swiss or Japanese music box mechanism. Small details on the music box changed over the years, such as the print on the wind-up knob, the words printed on the top, etc., so be sure to pay special attention to these things!

Other Information:

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and
broke his crown,
And Jill came
tumbling after.
