Antique Game, Jumpy Tinker with all pieces, ready to play. In addition to the classic construction sets made by the Toy Tinkers of Evanston, the Illinois company offered several games like Jumpy Tinker, a toss game that first appeared in 1918 and may have been continued into the late 1930's. The graphics are delightful, depicting a well dressed family having a friendly competition. Look at Dad in his smoking jacket! Son wearing a puffy necktie!
This is a skill and action game. Clip the wooden piece with numbered posts to both top and box bottom edges, then catapult the cardboard rings onto the posts or into the box. If the ring lands in the box, you score 1 or 2 points depending on location. If you ring a post, your score the number below the post.
A well known wooden toy reference site has an incomplete set from 1938 listed at 75-100 dollars, so I think this is a very good price for a complete set. The box is in Measures 11 by 5.25 inches by 1 inch deep. A great display item with dolls and toys as well as a real game to play!
