As far as I know the first appearance of this design is as 'Le Cri Du Veau' in 'Joujoux En Papier' by Tom Tit, which was published in Paris by Paul Lechevalier in 1924.

The design also appears:

In 'Fun with Paperfolding' by William D Murray and Francis J Rigney, which was published by the Fleming H Revell Company, New York in 1928, as 'The Trumpet'. The author suggests that the sound may be amplified by attaching a paper cone around the stem of the Trumpet.

As 'La Chifla' (The Whistle) in the extended version of 'El Mundo de Papel' by Dr Nemesio Montero, which was published by G Miranda in Edicions Infancia in Valladolid in 1951.

As 'Un Cri d'Animal' in 'Au Pays des Mains Agiles', which was published by Editions Fleurus in Paris in 1949
