Made by Kanto Japan 70 years ago. When wound, monkey on back goes up and down while the cycle rolls forward in a bit of a circle. The rubber driving wheel is slick due to age so, use it on a not so slick surface. Nice lithography with some overall wear and scratching. A small dent in front of the cycle.
Drivers head is split a little, some litho loss here and there. It is complete, has the built in key. It is a little over 6 inches long. A toy that is not easy to to find especially working.
