A very hard to find example of a classic Christmas toy. This is a "MADE IN JAPAN" toy produced by the "Y" Yonewaza Co. It is a circa 1955 store display automation used to promote the sale of the many smaller sized versions.
It measures approx 19 inches tall. The box measures approx 21 x 12 x 8 inches. It is listed on page 115.
The box is original and complete. It is in very good - excellent condition still retaining nice coloring.
It does have a number of clear taped repairs and a small piece of the lid corner that has been repaired. The box bottom is perfect and comes with two of the original packaging inserts. This is a very nice example to display in any Kris Kringle, Saint Nicklaus, Belsnickle or Father Christmas themed toy collection or as a center piece of gifts and toys by your Christmas Tree.
