Recording Jeep and Airport Jeep Friction toys from Japan *sold*
Recording Jeep and Airport Jeep Friction toys from Japan
Fresh from our toy shows, we get to showcase some great and classic Japanese Jeeps. Our tin jeeps are friction and have great actions when rolling– The International Airport Jeep has a waving hand driver that “leads” planes down the runway. Then our Reel to Reel recorder Jeep must tackle imagination more than reality. It is a semi-military jeep that just looks cool with moving reels on the back.
Condition on both toys is very good to excellent. The front wheels on the Airport jeep at first appear loose, but likely cant to the side for sudden turns; the fifth wheel underneath pops down at times for erratic turns. Light scratching as shown on both from light play wear.
Japan has always been known for imaginative and colorful tin lithography. Each of these designs are classic and sure to appreciate in time. Their actions are less common, likely from the 1950’s, and the colors are eye popping on a display.
