A vintage 1960s Rosko Japan Hy-Que Speak No Evil mechanical steel and plastic battery operated monkey toy. This famous 17" tall toy has brightly lithographed metal parts and soft rubber hands and head with fur. The clothing is intact and in excellent shape as is the metalwork (it rates a visual C9 to us). The mechanism doesn't work, however the face does light up. The battery tray is clean with only minor stains and it is free of corrosion...
a fantastic robot meccano ,from the blue and gold period i found the old notice they mention from 1948 to 1954. these were in the Windows of the meccano sellers .i love the "tribal esthetic"of the head height 80cm.all the mechanism is Inside in brass with an electric wire .would be great to find an engine actually agreed to motorize him again you can see one on you tube they used to turn the head left and right and walk like skating with his big feet http://youtu.be/t920mBFbXVk
1938 Ferdinand & Matador Toy
A Vintage Marx Tin Wind-up, the Walt Disney 1938 Ferdinand the Bull and Matador. Winds up and works, though a bit stiff. Nice example.
Just wind him up and watch him go. This monkey has its original key and when wound he strums his guitar and moves his head. He sits on a tin stump that is mounted on a wooden base. This toy was made in Japan and dates c. 1949. There are 2 minor creases in his hat, otherwise, very fine condition. He is 7 1/2 inches tall.
Offered is a vintage, 1930's, Wyandotte, Mechanical Duck Shooting Gallery Tin Game. The game measures 11" high x 14" wide and features a large fixed wind-up key in front.
The game works by turning the wind-up key and flipping the start lever. The ducks are supposed to move across the shooting gallery as the center target wheel turns. Ducks are attached to an elastic fabric band that turns on wheels...
I remeber these as a small child, every home should have one.
This Gorham sterling yo-yo is 2 1/4" in diameter by 1 3/8". . It is hallmarked Gorham sterling cover 30 steel body. Circa 1930s. There are a few dings in the sterling. Definitely for the person who has everything. There are the letters the letters "R" and "G ?" on the top. It's so faint you can hardly read it.

Just adorable! On the back of the toy, a lone boy is seen drawing pictures and practicing spelling at a portable chalk board...
