This old wind up toy bears the Alps Trade Mark – Made in Japan on the bottom. The funny puppy with a cute face appears to be dressed in a green turtleneck sweater and yellow pants. In one hand he appears to have a pipe and in the other is perhaps a blue book. A little red head is on the top of his head. When wound the pups head moves up and down and his hard rubber tail spins which seems to cause him to rotate….kind of like a dog chasing his tail! The bottom is cardboard. I believe this is from the 1960’s. This will come with a key although it is not the original key.
You can see the action on Facebook, just search for us on Facebook (Ogee’s Antiques) or look for a link to our Facebook page under "Our Favorite Links" on our Ruby Lane Home Page.
He measures about 5 ½” in the short position and about 6 ¼” tall in the tallest position. Overall the plastic has minor scuff wear but the hat has more and seems a little rough. It is in good working condition.
