This cute little teddy bear is an old tape measure. The bear is covered with a plush fabric and it has tiny glass or plastic eyes and a little painted tin nose. Its arms and legs are jointed with metal connectors that show on the outside. It has a little ribbon tied around its neck. The tail is the tab for the white cloth tape measure. The tape measure has inch increments on both sides and it is marked Japan. I believe this is from the 1930's - 1940's. The teddy bear could be used a a prop for and old doll.
The little bear measures about 3 ¼” in length and overall it is in good condition with light wear. The plush is worn in a few places and is lightly soiled. The tape pulls out and retracts wells and has a slight amount of edge wear at the beginning.
