He's got his key. He's got his original box. He's got the excited terrified look of a boy about to go downhill on his sled.
This vintage LUCKY SLEDGE windup toy is made of hand-painted celluloid (the boy) and tin (the sled). This was made in Occupied Japan (1946 to 1949) by Kenkosha Toys Industrial Co. Ltd. of Japan. (Someone obviously didn't hear the word 'sled' correctly and turned it into 'sledge'.)
The toy measures about 4 1/2 inches across by 3 1/2 inches high.
You wind him up (careful not to overwind), set him down, and off he goes into the make-believe snow.
This original vintage toy is old warehouse stock that was never opened till we just made sure it's functioning well. It is.
The graphics on the box are great...still colorful with box secured with original staples. Just a minor bump to the lid and a bit of age rust to the key but overall, both toy and box are in excellent vintage condition. You'd be a lucky person to own this Lucky Sledge.
