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 Mary Had A Little Lamb
are the only two music boxes in this shape and size. Designed for children ages 2 to 6 years old.
In 1964 the Hey, Diddle Diddle TV Music Box had paper lithographs on the sides with pictures of Mother Goose. In 1965 through 1970, the lithographs had pictures that depict the Hey, Diddle Diddle nursery rhyme (kiddie with a fiddle, cow jumping over a moon, etc.). Both of these music boxes were available with either Swiss or Japanese music movements.
