Vintage Japanese Child’s Toy & Darning Mushroom (Each)

R65.00R160.00

I was super lucky to get my hands on this vintage Japanese noise maker – tin toys are super collectible (and super pricey!), and being made in Japan our toy would be ever more sought after! He’s also in pretty decent nick, with only minor wear to his paintwork, and is still completely functional – crank his handle, and he issues a few notes – so not a great musical genius, but for some reason still a very pleasing sound!

The darning mushroom is obviously completely unrelated – it may look like a toy, but it’s definitely not, being designed instead to help you fix your socks (back when people had the time to do crazy things like darn their socks!). But it’s a very pleasing looking item, and actually wouldn’t look out of place in a child’s bedroom, even if just as display piece….

Dimensions: Japanese noise maker – 20.5cm tall (incl. crank) x 5cm in diameter; Darning mushroom – 10cm long x 7cm in diameter
