Description: The short-lived Change-A-Tune Carousel is similar to the #111 Merry-Go-Round (1972-1977), except this carousel has 3 swinging chairs and a record player on the side. The record player used 3 newly designed records (marked A, B, and C) that were interchangeable with the records that came with the #995 Music Box Record Players. The wind-up crank on the side of the base serves both functions in this case--moving the carousel and playing the record on the turntable at the same time. The accessory Little People figures fit in the carousel seat and the accessory records store neatly under the carousel base.
Accessories: Please remember that the following accessories are the accessories that are pictured in the Fisher-Price catalogues. These should be used as guidelines only, as other variations may exist:
  • B170 - Carousel Base - Green plastic base with a white record turntable and a round white carousel floor. The side of the white base has a yellow hand crank that winds the music box mechanism to play records. The turntable has a blue needle arm on top, and an open gap under the turntable to store accessory records. The carousel floor has a round striped pole in the center that supports a round yellow plastic carousel canopy roof. 3 yellow upside-down U-shaped brackets hang down from the canopy roof to hold 3 carousel chairs. The chairs (red, purple/maginta, and blue) have a round hole for Original Little People figures to sit in.
  • 3 records - *See "Variations" below for colors:
    • Record A - plays "Do-Re-Mi" & "Blue Danube".
    • Record B - plays "Music Box Dancer" & "Barbara Allen".
    • Record C - plays "Under The Double Eagle" & "Round The Village".
  • 3 Little People Figures. All figures have a Plastic Body and a Plastic Head:
