This old wind up toy dog is called Terrier although his rabbit fur makes him look more like a poodle. It has plastic eyes, a tin nose and stitched moth where a little flannel cover ball dangles. When he his wound up using the attached key he hops around in a circle like a bunny. His tin belly is stamped; Japan. This toy comes in its original box which has nice colorful graphics of a terrier dog with a ball tied around its neck. It also has Made in Japan with the Alps logo on the front of the box. I believe this is from the 1950’s or 1960’s.

The dog measures about 4 ¾” long by about 4” high and is in very nice working condition with minimal wear. The box is in fairly nice condition with good color however there is a 2" cut in on the lid across the ball and 25c has been written with a felt marker on the front left hand corner. One corner of the lid is also torn. It measures about 5” by 4 ½” by 2 ¼”.
