Vintage T.A. Mechanical Hungry Chicks “Non-Inflammable” Acetiloid/Plastic Japanese Windup Toy
Our example of this vintage acetiloid/plastic mechanical hungry chicks manufactured in Japan by T.A. This mechanical wind-up toy has two (2) actions. The three (3) chicks bob up and down and the canopy with hanging flowers spins. The three (3) little bells in the center ring as it spins. The toy is in two (2) pieces with the canopy fitting onto a metal spindle in the middle of the base.
This piece is in good all original condition with no restorations, repairs, or touch ups. It has a dedicated windup key and works with some encouragement. The acetiloid/plastic is mussed a bit around where the key is wound. The original box that comes with this is in excellent condition. This piece shows the usual patina, chips, dust, scuffs, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. It is approximately 6 ½” in height and 3″ diameter at its widest. This would be a great addition to any celluloid/plastic collection. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
