Vintage Thingy Thursday


This is my dancing bear. I know nothing about it! Don't know if it's European or American. Someone gave it to my mom, when she was down sizing I grab this guy. I remember it was high on shelf, so we wouldn't play with it. It has a wonderful fabric on it. No eyes. But the best part is I have the key to him. And he still winds up!

Where do I keep it? High on a shelf so know one can play with it. LOL

I had a dancing monkey. It slapped together cymbals. Very noisy. My Mom always hid it! :)

Great vintage toy...and with the key! I had a dog that did back flips. How my grandma would laugh when it did that!

The pyrex dish was $4. And I'm sure that I was in the right place at the right time :)

I remember this sitting on the shelf. Mom would get so angry if you pulled it down and tried to wind it. "you'll break it!". I would always wonder what was in that bottle he was drinking. LOL
