This listing is for a fully functional BATTERY OPERATED FISHING POLAR BEAR w/box as shown. This is not a reproduction toy. It is in very good working order. Tin litho, plastic, fur, straw hat and clothing are very nice & clean.
Battery compartment & base are excellent. The 6 correct actions of this toy are as follows: (1) Eyes light up, (2) Right arm drops fishing pole in. Hole and raises up with a fish, (3) Head moves back and forth 3 or 4 times in approval, (4) Bear starts making a laughing sound, (5) Left arm lifts and.Removes fish from pole, (6) Electro-magnet in left hand drops fish in basket. (fish slide back into ice hole) Process is repeated. A very cute toy to watch. One original tin litho fish is included.
It is listed & pictured on page 76. It is a 1950's era toy made by the Alps Co.The original box is in mint condition. It is undamaged with no repairs. Also includes the original instruction card and packaging inserts. Displays very well with the toy. Would make a nice addition to any toy collection or a great gift idea for any sportsman, hunter or fisherman.
