FOR SALE ☞ Father Tucks Rocking Animals -- 10 Animal Die Cut Paper Rocking Toys c. 1905
DESCRIPTION ☞ This is a really cool and rare antique ephemeral toy from the turn of the last century! 10 die cut animals that rock back and forth. Animals include: Cat, Dog, Tiger, Lion, Sheep, Donkey, Horse, Cow, Camel and Elephant. The Elephant is the largest, so we used that for measurements on this item. Each of the animals (except the camel) can fold out to stand and rock. Descriptions of the animals, including their latin names, are printed on reverse. Please see images and video.
DIMENSIONS ☞ The elephant, which is the largest of the animals measures approximately 9 inches in length by 7.5 inches tall.
CONDITION ☞ This piece is in decent condition for it's age and prior use as a child's toy! Most of the animals have pencil drawings on the reverse side as well as some writing in a child's hand. The camel is the only animal that does not stand up on it's own anymore, and he is also missing his nose. The cat has a torn ear, which is still with the set in a plastic baggie. The box is really only the front of the box, the sides and bottom have been removed. All of the animals have some kind of wear, including tape on small tears or fine creases in the paper cardboard. This set is not mint!
