Description: The very first music box tv radio made by Fisher-Price was 1959's #148 Jack And Jill, a wide rectangular wooden box with a wooden carry handle on top supported by two short metal posts. The same music box body style was used with 6 other music boxes, including the #166 Farmer In The Dell TV Radio. The music box mechanism could be either Swiss or Japanese.
  • Wide rectangular wooden music box that plays, "The Farmer In The Dell" when wound. The top of the music box has a white wooden carry handle that is supported by 2 steel posts, and a spring antenna with a red wooden bead on the end. A round red wooden knob on the left front side is a pretend "channel selector". The front center of the music box has a squared yellow plastic "speaker" with a round knob in the center that winds the music box. Pictures of a farmer, his wife, a child, a nurse, a dog, a cat, a mouse, and a piece of cheese revolve past the "screen" on the front of the music box as the music plays "The Farmer In The Dell". The back of the music box has a litho picture of the same characters that revolve past the "screen" described above, and words to the song "The Farmer In The Dell". Measures 7-1/4" wide, 7-1/4" high (including antenna and bead), and 2" deep. *See "Variations" below.
