On Switch for a Musical Betty Jane Carter Doll?

We would just like to know how to play the music on a Betty Jane Carter (Goebel) musical doll? In this case, Tamara, from 1989. We realize she's not worth much, but knowing how to play the music rather completes her. We can't find a switch or string anywhere.

This is not your exact doll, but there is a photo showing how most were built--you have to click through the pix:

The winder was typically a small silver key on the butt.

They often broke off and some moms would stitch the hole shut.
Occasionally an angry parent would cut the music boxes out (when the child played it too much).

I wonder if that is what is going on with yours.

Post back with an update.

There may be a wind-up mechanism underneath
