Any Coca Cola collectors here?

I got this recently and have not been able to find out anything about it. It winds at the bottom and spins to the tune of 'My Favorite Things'. I don't really think it's very old and probably not incredibly valuable but I'm just hoping to find out how recently it was made and if there are more like it and if so, where might I find them? Thanks in advance!

Hm. The song was written in the '50s. I don't know anything about Coke stuff but could someone have stuck the music thing onto an older Coke canister?

Nah. It was definitely made that way.

The canister is not very old, this was a hobby a few years back, take the musical movement and put it on any metal canister or tin box you had around to repurpose it....Last year, I saw vendors doing this at a craft show with newer metal lunch boxes..I received one last year as a joke gift, it was a Christmas canister that played When Irish Eyes are smiling..LOL

Don't know alot about antiques, at least not enough to give solid advice, but I have that Coke tin too. I think Dotz is right. Mine isn't very old.
I didn't spend much time searching eBay, your tin might be there, but here is one similar (its a cookie/fruitcake tin though)

Here is a link that might be useful: Bristolware Cookie Tin
