This tin toy puppy from yesteryear has floppy ears and races across the floor when you push down on his tail to wind him up. Measures 6-1/2"X6-1/2"X3-1/4". Lots of fun with authentic lithograph color finish and original look. Made for collectors and nostalgia buffs, not a child's toy.
We know the heritage of these tin wind-up toys as we have warehoused them for about 25 years. They were produced on much older dies in China in the 1970’s by The Castle in Pennsylvania. There was only one production run and sales were rather unexciting. So, being the scavengers we are, we bought all they had and have been slowly selling them out of our Olney store for all these years ( when I have a unique item, I am a very patient merchandiser –they don’t eat anything as they say).
