(Prager & Rueben, 1943-1945) A Raggy Doodle Paratrooper toy designed by aviatrix Elvy Kalep. Pat the Paratrooper was designed to "present modern military aviation and its wartime aspects ... to remove the more terrifying elements of these subjects from the minds of little children." Made of felt and wood, the figure is thrown high in the air, to float suspended by the parachute back to Earth. This example comes with its original box and instructions that give a fascinating insight into wartime life. Measuring 7"x5" with attached parachute, the figure is in fine to very fine condition, unused, with wear from aging to the tag and parachute only, including a spot of discoloration to the chute. The original box displays in very good condition, with the top flap missing.
