Licensed by King Features Syndicate, and made in the U.S.A. for Mattel, this is a colorful, tin lithograph jack in the box, music box, featuring Popeye the sailor, and his friends. It plays, "Popeye the Sailor Man" when you turn the metal crank that has the original, wood knob. When the music stops, the lid opens and Popeye jumps out. It's in overall excellent condition, with no scratches, dents, or other damage to the colorful images, but there is some wear to the top, and rim of Popeye's plastic hat. Popeye isn't exactly centered, and I suspect this wear is a result of that.. He's kind of floppy when he's out, too. I suspect that would be an easy fix, but don't want to disturb the otherwise perfect cloth covering over the spring to get inside. Popeye has his original, and often missing, corn cob pipe. It measures 5&1/2 inches tall, and 5 inches square. Nice to have, and displays well, is the original box. it is complete, and looks great, but does have some wear. The previous owner put a piece of something lightweight, but solid,probably a block of Styrofoam) inside so the box keeps its perfectly square shape, and then covered it in clear shrink wrap. It looks good, so I am leaving it in place.

I currently have several tin toys, including other Popeye and Olive Oyl toys, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type, "tin toy", or, "Popeye", in the California Girls search box at the top of this page.
