Labeled "Old Fashioned Funny Action Monkey", this colorful wind-up tin toy was made in India for Shackman & Co. Inc., New York in the manner of the old tin wind-ups. It comes complete with its big key and cardboard box. The monkey is brightly lithographed and jointed at the arms and legs. When wound up, the arms move to flip the monkey head over heels, tumbling along across any flat surface, pivoting between its hands and its flat forehead. The box has the copyright 1984 and the foil sticker on the monkey says 1983.
Fully extended, the monkey is 6 3/4" long and it measures 3" across the shoulders. Mechanical condition is excellent. There is just a little scuffing of the paint and wear on the edges of the box.
