(Linemar, c.1950s) A rare vintage Pluto acrobat wind-up toy. When the clockwork mechanism on the side of the frame is wound with the integral key, the trapeze moves back and forth, causing the figure to swing, somersault, and occasionally flip over the bar. The mechanism is in working order, but needs manual assistance to get started. This toy has many similarities to the Linemar Gym Toys Acrobat Pluto, but appears to be of earlier release and is assuredly much more scarce. Measuring 9.25"6" and 2.25" deep, the piece is in very good condition. The tail is absent. The figure exhibits some soiling and there is minor wear and tarnish to the frame.
