Elephant 50s Vintage Battery Operated Toy Works Lights
Here's a neat 1950's era battery operated toy... a drummer elephant. Online resources say his name is Mambo. He is in working order. He drums... and you can hear it, not just see the action... he hits the drums and cybol with his sticks. There's lots of action! His eyes light up, his head moves, his trunk moves, his arms move and his foot moves to hit the bass drum. Multiple parts are made differently... body is a furry material (probably mohair) over metal understructure and workings, felt hat & tongue, glass eyes, tin litho base and drum set, skins in base drum are plastic coated paper. Jingle bell at end of trunk. Battery compartment is clean. A cymbol on a floor mounted pole is missing. Tear in paper on back of base drum. His right eye is the original glass eye light bulb. His left appears to have been replaced long ago with a tiny light bulb that someone has painted black in an attempt to match the other one. He's 8.75" high, 8" front to back, 4.75" side to side. A great vintage toy in very good condition with exceptions noted above. His fur is in great shape... no rips or tears, and the metal is in very good condition too... no rust or fading... still bright and fun to look at.
