Jack-in-the-box

A jack-in-the-box.

Monster Box is based off a jack-in-the-box. It is a children's toy that outwardly consists of a box with a crank. When the crank is turned, it plays a tune,, and when it ends, there is a "surprise": the lid pops open and a figure, usually a clown or jester, pops out of the box. Some jack-in-the-boxes open at random times when cranked, making the startle even more effective. A jack-in-the-box is called a "diable en boîte" (literally "boxed devil").
