Rare & unusual "Monzini" foosball game. Apparently a period copy-cat of the famous "Bonzini", this manufacturer cast their name in the chest of every hand-painted player. Same solid construction as the Bonzini with linoleum playing field and chromed telescoping control rods. Excellent overall condition. Circa late 1960's.

This adorable stuffed donkey has the softest mohair fur & a very goofy face. With articulating arms & legs, vinyl pads on the bottoms of his feet & a red vinyl mouth, he is quite an original. There are a few small areas where fur has been loved off along the seams and one ear is loose, but he is very clean & in overall good shape. I think he may have had another stripe of red yarn along his head, but he is still a cutie...

This adorable wooden pull-toy circa 1930's features two painted wood elephants playing ball over a fence. Their trucks lift up & down when a lever underneath moves - unfortunately just pulling the toy does not make them move anymore. Normal wear from age & use, the striped celluloid ball between them is cracked has a hole on one side. Still quite a charmer! Measures approx. 15" long x 5" wide x 8" tall.
