Description: The very first music box that Fisher-Price introduced was the #148 Jack and Jill TV Radio in 1959. In the years that followed, several other music boxes were introduced but they all had a wooden body and a small revolving "TV" screen. In 1964, Fisher-Price introduced a more realistic music box TV as the #196 "Hey Diddle Diddle" Double Screen TV Music Box. The #196 is a square plastic pretend TV with a large TV screen on the front that has scrolling colorful pictures plus a smaller screen on top to view smaller picture. Wind the music box and the pictures revolve in time to the music. The #196 must had been successful as a year later another Double Screen Color TV Music Box was introduced...this time playing Mary Had a Little Lamb. The #196 and #195 are the only two music boxes in this shape and size. Designed for children ages 2 to 6 years old.
Accessories:
  • Square yellow plastic music box TV with a square white wooden base and a white plastic front with a large clear plastic TV screen. The plastic screen protects colorful pictures that revolve past the screen when the music box is wound. The front bottom of the music box has a red plastic wind-up knob that cannot be over wound and two red clicking pretend channel and volume control knobs. The top of the music box has a small "peek-a-boo" window with a clear plastic cover that protects small colorful pictures that revolve past the screen. The music box has a red hard plastic hinged handle and a spring antenna with a bead on top. The music box plays, "Mary Had a Little Lamb" as pictures of the nursery rhyme revolve past the two TV screens.
