Vintage Yonezawa Japan Battery Operated Moon Explorer

What a find! The best example of this toy we have seen!

Working perfectly - press one button and the astronaut emerges from the space vehicle with a camera as the engine lights spin. Press the second button and the vehicle moves forward with spinning radar and engine lights, accompanied by the classic "beep" sound.

In great condition with a bright glossy finish and only one small melt mark on the cockpit glass and one on the remote. These toys frequently have many, many melt marks due to a chemical reaction between the wire and plastic portions - this one is the exception. The wire is as supple and flexible as the day it was made..

The box is in very good condition with a repaired cover tear and some minor dings.

Made in Japan by Yonezawa for Cragstan, and circa the 1960's.
