Vintage 1950's-60's Tin Litho Wind-up Square Dancing Twins Music Box Mattel Orig:
UP FOR sale IS THIS OLD, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE 1950'S -60'S Tin Type / Lithograph Toy "SQUARE DANCING TWINS & MUSIC BOX" WITH ITS ORIGINAL BOX, MADE BY "MATTEL".
THIS TOY IS IN GOOD CONDITION, THE LITHO IS VERY BRIGHT,AS IS THE CONDITION OF THE FIGURES AND THE CLOTHES THEY ARE WEARING. (THERE DOESAPPEAR TO BE A SMALL "SCRATCH" ON THE WOMAN'S FACE WHERE HER "ROUGE" IS, BUT DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE INTEGRITY. IT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN JUST "BOXED UP", AND NOT USED VERY MUCH. WHEN YOU TURN THE CRANK IT PLAYS A "SQUARE DANCE" TUNE, AND THE DANCERS ARE SUPPOSED TO TWIRL WHILE THE FLOOR SPINS. IT DOES PLAY THE TUNE WHEN CRANKED, BUT THE FIGURES DONT MOVE, NOR DOES THE FLOOR. I AM NOT A TOY EXPERT, BUT AM CERTAIN CAN BE FIXED, AND PROBABLY EASILY, AS THERE REALLY IS NOT MUCH TO THIS TOY. I AM SELLING IT "AS IS", BUT AM VERY CONFIDENT THAT ANY COLLECTOR OF "TIN", "LITHO", OR "TOYS" WILL RECOGNIZE THIS AS A VERY GOOD PIECE, WORTHY OF REPAIR, AND BECAUSE IT STILL HAS ITS ORIGINAL BOX..EVEN MORE SO. GOOD LUCK!
When you crank this toyit is supposed to play asquare dance tune and the dancers twirl while the floor spins.
The dolls, their clothes, the lithographs and the tin are all in very good condition.
At this time the tune plays clearly butthe dancers and floor only move intermittently. Internal adjustment is needed to make this toy work properly.
