Manufactured in the 1950’s by KO,Japan. The fabulous Space Whale Ship is one of the most desired tin wind-up toys ever to be manufactured. Measuring 9″ long and 8″ wide from whisker to whisker, the toy moves along swaying up and down as if he were in water. Then all of a sudden the big mouth opens wide and then closes as quickly as it opened. The wind-up mechanism is controlled by the antenna. A Beautiful Toy.
