DESCRIPTION: This is a NO-RESERVE sale for a nice ORIGINAL wooden PART from a Mickey Mouse toy from the 1930's. On this older piece, Mickey still has his "pie eyes". The piece is marked © Disney, Mc D. By M.B. Co. U.S.A. underneath his legs. I believe that "M.B." is Marks Brothers. This piece is made of a thin wood (like balsa wood) and the image is attached paper. His legs and arms are attached with metal rivets. With outstretched arms and legs, he measures approximately 5 3/4 inches and he's about 1 1/2 inches across. This is a piece of a toy that was originally attached to a wooden frame with string. By manipulating it (I believe, by squeezing the frame), you could make Mickey do somersaults and spins. This sale is for Mickey ONLY....the rest of the toy is not there. Nonetheless, this is a very early Mickey Mouse piece and displays really well. I'm not sure of its "official" name, but it is often called a Trapeze Toy or an Acrobat Toy. I've also seen it referenced as "Tumbling Mickey". You don't see these that often and since it displays well, it would make a nice inexpensive addition to any Disney collection.
Please note that I have a lot of other early Disney pieces, so if you are looking for something specific, please feel free to contact me.
CONDITION: As mentioned above, the "frame" piece of this toy is missing. Mickey has some light staining on him and some paper loss. He is also missing part of one foot and some digits on one hand. I URGE ALL BIDDERS TO PLEASE EXAMINE THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY TO ALSO MAKE YOUR OWN CONDITION DETERMINATION! (They are of the actual item you will receive.)
SHIPPING: $3.00. This item will be in a plastic sleeve, sandwiched between some light cardboard and mailed in an envelope via the U.S. Postal Service.
PAYMENT: Via PAYPAL only. Like everyone, I do very much appreciate rapid payment. Non-payment after 7 days after the sale ends will get you a "gentle reminder" via eBay messaging. Non-payment after 10 days after the end of the sale will, unfortunately, force me to initiate eBay non-payment action. I don't like doing it and I'm sure you don't like being on the receiving end.
MY PHILOSOPHY: I like buying stuff on eBay too and even though this isn't a business for me, I try very hard to describe and photograph items the way I'd like to see them described/photo'd if I was buying them. I encourage all potential buyers to contact me with ANY questions before bidding so I can make sure you are satisfied and informed before you bid, and PLEASE examine the photographs carefully.
THANKS for looking at this really nice early and original Mickey Mouse toy piece. It would make a great addition to any Walt Disney, Mickey Mouse, or toy collection. This is a NO-RESERVE auction, so if you bid, you may be the lucky winner. Please bid frequently and high. Good luck! THANK YOU!
