Classic Fisher Price: Music Box Pocket Radio

Fisher Price made tons of wind up music playing items.
This one plays It's A Small World and was produced in the late 70s.
The song was popularized by the Disney created attraction for the 1964 World's Fair in New York. Afterward the attraction was moved to Disneyland. Copies have since been installed in all the Disney Theme Parks. However I would like to see them install it on their cruise ships.
Mary Poppins composers Robert and Richard Sherman wrote the song.
The graphics on the back seem to look like style of the ride but I have yet to find any Disney relationship concerning this toy.
It still plays although there is some wear to the bottom. Once again Fisher Price proves durable after nearly 40 years.
