Hope You Develop a Liking for Me (Camera Valentine)

Hope You Develop a Liking for Me (Camera Valentine)
"I shall be candid with you, Valentine. You're so snappy. Hope you develop a liking for me."

A mechanical valentine. Moving the boy's head alternately displays "Valentine," "You're so snappy," and a girl's face in the lens of the camera, and the final position also reveals a heart with the message, "Hope you develop a liking for me."

I suspect that this card dates to the 1960s, when the television show Candid Camera was at the height of its popularity.
