This piece is a tin, lithographed, windup “Kinderspielplatz” babies on playground toy that was manufactured by Johann Hofler/Jean Hofler & Co. of Nuremberg. Germany.
When wound with a key, this working example has two babies on a merry-go-round that goes around in a circle, one baby swings on a swing, and two babies go up and down on a seesaw with a ball that goes back and forth between them. The babies are made of a rubber or plastic and are original. The clockwork mechanism works well. The ball is not the original and is a clay marble that is similar in size to the original ball. The key is not original and is a Schuco key that works with this.
