Vintage Ideal toy from the 1960's, Clancy the Great, the roller skating monkey. Marked "Ideal" on the bottom, the hard-plastic toy is brightly colored and operates when his hat is placed in his hand. Two prongs in the hand make the connection when the holes in the hat fit over them. Non-working condition. Uses 3 "D" batteries.
Clancy stands 20 inches tall and is 12 inches wide due to arms. He is 11 inches deep due to the extended left arm.
CONDITION: Although I could get a slight hum from the motor when batteries were inserted, I could not get this toy to operate. In addition, although it is not very clean now, I took over 2 hours removing the worst of the dirt. With a little more cleaning, he will be a great display piece for a vintage toy collection. If you are REALLY good at restoration, you will be able to get him to skate and will make quite a bit if you decide to resell him.
Low beginning auction price reflects the sweat equity that a buyer will need to put into his restoration.
Ships by Parcel Post due to size and weight. International buyers should be aware that this will need to ship by Priority Mail International, which is quite expensive.
The items I sell are bargains I pick up at auctions, estate sales, and garage sales in central Indiana. Because most items are antique or vintage, they will necessarily have some signs of wear. I always try to note flaws, and items should arrive as described. Please note that I cannot guarantee certain items (books especially) will be free of smoke odors, because earlier generations were not concerned about this.
In most cases I wash vintage linens unless they are in original packaging which is to be preserved.
Every item I sell is guaranteed to be as described. Returns accepted up to 30 days from date of purchase. I will refund shipping back as well.
Please contact me if you have any questions or problems. My goal is to make sure that you are a satisfied customer.
