This wonderful old toy is complete with wheels, propeller and Mickey. It was manufactured by the Sun Rubber Company during the 1930's or 40's. The air plane is 6 & 3/4 inches long and about 5 inches tall. This nice old toy might have a replacement propeller, because the propellers just didn't last, but this one looks original.
The Sun Rubber Company made a series of "solid rubber" Disney figures that started with the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf that were manufactured in 1933. By 1938, the line included Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Donald Duck. Production ceased during World War II so the company could contribute to the war effort.
After the War, in June 1946, Sun Rubber announced that it would produce a full line of Disney character toys which included Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Donald Duck, in toy stores across the country in time for Christmas . After a long strike by the United Rubber Workers the company went out of business in 1974.
