RARE 1950s THE JOLLY PEANUT VENDOR WALKING BEAR BATTERY OPERATED TIN TOY WITH BOX JAPAN TN NOMURA

WILL SHIP INTERNATIONALLY

 

This auction is for a fully functional battery operated highly lithographed tin The Jolly Peanut Vendor with Walking Bear & Rolling Cart, made by T.N. Nomura, Japan.  This toy has a ton of lithographing in a large variety of colors and many parts!  There is NOT any corrosion anywhere complete and with the original box.  The wheels have very little use and still have plenty of tread.  The bear looks great with very large eyes and is clean.  His shoes a brilliant red with almost zero wear.  The cart has some very minor wear from light use and expected from a rare toy of this vintage age.

This large tin toy was rug tested on 4-17-2012 and is fully operational and WORKS!  When switch is turned on, he does the correct 7 actions as follows: (1) Peanut cart moves forward, (2) The bear's feet alternately move forward as if he is pushing the cart, (3) Sound of peanuts popping is made as the popper pops the peanuts upward in the clear plastic enclosure, (4) Red light "glows" as if peanuts are actually cooking, (5) A whistling/squeaking sound is made, (6) Smoke comes out of the smokestack, (smokes very well), (7) The bear's left hand moves up and down as if pulling the cord on the smokestack. Very neat! All the plastic windows are intact with no cracks or breaks . Battery compartment is very clean as are the connections. The direction of the toy can changed by turning the wheel on the battery compartment door. This is a "MADE IN JAPAN"  and marked as such.

The box has great detail and color with natural patina.  Top edges have some rubs and lifting below and between the bottom left where it reads “POWERED MOTOR”, expected light superficial creasing, the left side has a tear on the bottom, front bottom side has creasing on the left hand side.  Please view photos and ask any questions – great display box and overall in good condition.

This would make a nice addition to any collector of B.O. toys, circus, friction, or battery operated tin toys.   This toy displays very, very well.

Approx. Measurements of toy:

                Length =  9” (head to front of cart) 5 ¼” (top of cart)

                Width =  5 ¾” (wheel to wheel) 4 ½” (top of cart)

                Height =  8” (bear) 7 ¼” (to light on cart)

Approx. Measurement of Box:

               Length =  8 ¼”

                Width =  9 ½”

                Depth =  5 ¼”
