I'm looking for a very specific (Fisher Price?) record player from my childhood.

It looked very much like the clamshell-type Fisher Price Record Player
of the late 70s/early 80s, but here's the thing: it had small glass lightbulbs and something like bike reflector tape along the inside of the top shell, and when you played a record, the lights flashed and reflected off the decals, throwing flashing rainbows around the room if you had the lights off. At least, that's how I remember it.
It was sized for 45s, but also played LPs (like the Fisher Price model). It may very well have been a Fisher Price model - I'm not sure. I probably got it in 1983 - no later than 1985.
I like the Fisher Price models, but I'm looking for this one in particular, and after months of searching, am about to give up.
