Vintage Tin Wind Up Clockwork Drumming Panda Toy, Unopened In Box! 1970s - 1980s

5 1/4" Long x 4 1/2" Tall x 3 1/2" Wide

Tin toys are highly sought after and collectible and this one is one of the very popular ones. I went deep into this one to find out its provenance. I found a large number of these were found in an abandoned Tin Toy store fittingly named "The Last Wound-Up" that was located on Manhattan's Upper West Side in the early 1980s. This place drew huge crowds and the guy who ran it I guess was quite the character. he actually wrote,” The Tin Commandments ”: 1. Don’t postpone joy. 2. Toy with your future and spring to life. 3. He who winds up first will never wind up last. 4. Wind-ups spring eternal. 5. Those who hate toys hate themselves. 6. Those who hate themselves hate others. 7. Toys don’t hate. 8. Today is the only day. Invest in NOW. 9. Youth has nothing to do with age. 10. Buy toys, not medicine".

Two really great articles can be found here and here.

The one I tested worked perfectly but I am selling it as a collectible display only because I don't know if it will work on your floor or for how long as vintage wind-up toys are easy to over-crank.
