Up for sale is an adorable little toy wooden kitten made by Twistum Toys. Each of the wooden pieces comprising his body move freely. Most of the paint is still intact but has peeling and cracking from age. The cat is about 5" long and 3 1/4" tall. So sweet, would be a great toy for your French or German doll.

This is some of the information I found in an online article: Twistum toys were patented June 29, 1920. In the hopes of cashing in on the popularity of the Schoenhut Circus Animals, the Twistum Toy Factory made high quality, acrobatic toy animals at a lower cost than Schoenhut. Twistums are made of large wood and wood composition bead-like sections that are molded under high heat and pressure. They are practically unbreakable. They are then painted with bright gloss enamels in a wealth of color combinations. They have hand-painted features and "Modern Art designs," which the company advertised as making Twistums world famous.
