Dad made and painted the face pieces on each side, so that each piece has two different images. They all fit inside "Scottie"! Dad painted our initals on the bottom - probably so we wouldn't fight over them! Heaven forbid we would mix up the things!
His little tail is the handle to open and close the storage area! Just the right size for little hands.
Lift out the bigger mouth pieces (there are 3) and you have all the eyes and ear pieces.
I love the dappled wiskers on the mouth pieces! Or the round rosie cheeks!
I spose we got these in the early 50's, as I was born in 1947 and G was born in 1949. I wonder what it cost to make! Certainly not a lot, but love and time into making them!
Dad was a great craftsman and made us girls a whole back yard play ground. Had years of neighborhood fun in our back yard! He also refinished the interior of our house. It was a slow process, as I remember we always had some part of the house a mess in construction or in a remodeling mode.
Nothing like treasuring old toys. I can't wait until the next time Renee comes home. We'll have to get Scottie out again for her little hands to play with. Some day, Scottie will be played with by great grandchildren too.
A nice day here in northern MN. A balmy 32 above zero!!!!!!!!!! Think I better get my walk done before I go to bell practice. Have a great one! Jo
