Vintage Nomura TN Japan Battery Operated Telephone Bear In Box Working


I am pleased to offer a vintage battery operated Telephone Bear in the original box.  This bear features actions including a ringing telephone, a lighted note pad, writing action, talking voice.  Side show on/off switch – turn switch on and Bear’s notepad lights up “Magic”, the telephone rings a few times, and the Bear’s arm moves the phone to his ear and his head stars moving and a loud “talking” sound begins.  He continues this same process again until turned off.  The piece is of tin construction with bright litho detailing throughout.  Funny markings on the sides of desk include “I May Look Busy, But I’m Only Confused!”.  The Bear is fur covered and is wearing a cloth suit.  The back of the toy is marked “Made In Japan”.  Includes the original box marked with the “TN” Nomura Japan logo on the lid.  Lid also shows the original F.A.O. Schwarz New York sticker on the side.  Toy measures 7 1/4″ X 5″ X 7″.  Uses two D batteries.

Item is in great working condition and displays very well.  There is only minimal scratching to the colorful litho and no wear to fur.  Box shows some shelf wear with torn edges and small areas of loss on lid but is still intact.  This piece would make a fine addition to any collection.

Please see pictures and email with any questions.  International winners will be emailed with shipping costs.
