The Zilotone, made by the Wolverine Supply & Manufacturing Co. in the 1930s, features a man playing a xylophone.

A disc made of metal is inserted in the toy, and the clockwork is wound up. When switched on, the musician moves back and forth while hitting the keys with a mallet. These toys came with metal song discs.
