Vintage Wind Up USSR Sputnik Tin Toy

About 4.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide, this iconic tin sputnik toy was made in the USSR in the 1950's. When wound the space capsule orbits the earth (with the USSR prominantly displayed, and emits the classic sputnik signals through a side grill.

The On/Off switch is a bit sticky and requires one or two thows to the off position to engage. The toy is in excellent condition and does not appear to have been played with.

The lithography is terrific with imagery of Soviet fairytales and folklore. Included are Doctor Aibolit (based on Dr. Doolittle), and Buratino (Based on Pinocchio).

A scarce toy complete with a rare box. The box has minor dings and a taped seam, but is the best example we have seen over the years. Includes a non-original key.
