Toys Through Time

An old clockwork toy   

This toy clockwork tiger is from the 1960s. It is made of metal and has a soft, fleecy, tiger skin coat and a blue fabric bow tie. 


Can you see the key? 


When wound, this tiger sways backwards and forwards and beats the drum, which makes a 'rat-a-tat' sound.


The tiger must have been very carefully looked after because it still has its original box.


If you book the Education Workshop Toys Through Time you will see this special toy.
