It was first produced in the UK between 1935-36 and was originally called Robot light/signal.

Around the same time, more, real traffic light systems were being introduced and ironically, the world's first traffic light system was installed outside the Houses of Parliament).

 
A spiked version of the Traffic Light was produced later in the 1970’s.

Standard Fireworks then dropped the spike and reduced the physical size in the late 1970’s.
