Black Tin Cat On Wheels Vintage Japanese Wind-Up Toy

Sale price $38.00 Regular price $42.00

I really love this old tin cat on wheels toy, which is not just a great object, but a super fun one: pull down on the tail to wind it up (this requires holding the body with the other hand as the pressure pressure builds), then release and off it goes rolling, fast! It's also nice that it can sit up on its tail, head and two paws raised as if begging you for a treat! I'm not sure the maker of this one, but it is stamped "Made in Japan" on its bell, and I believe dates to the 1950s or so.

It is in great condition and works exactly as it should. There is wear and scratches to the paint here and there. 7 1/2" long x 3 1/4" wide x 5" tall (with tail).
