Drumming Mickey Mouse Tin Battery Operated Toy 1950s by LineMar Japan
I am pleased to offer this Vintage c.1950s Battery Operated Drumming Mickey Mouse Toy!
What a an interesting Mickey Toy!
Made by LineMar (the Japanese division of Marx) this Mickey Mouse still works great. When you press the button on the remote control Mickey “walks” forwards while he plays on the drum and moves his head side-to-side. The eyes are light bulbs, however they do not light up.
The outside of his drum is tin, with a colorful red, blue and yellow litho design which features the LineMar trademark. The top of the drum is a paper head. Mickey’s drum folds down for storage, there is a metal clip on his stomach that the drum clips to when you would like him to play his drums. The drum sticks are wire spring with plastic round ends.
Mickey’s legs and feet are tin, they are still a nice and shiny black. The bottoms of his feet have rubber rollers. The wire for the remote is attached to Mickey’s back, the remote itself is tin and holds two “D” batteries (not included).
This is a fantastic vintage Mickey Mouse toy that you do not come across too often, and would be a wonderful addition to any collection!
Stands about 10 1/2″ tall.
