Based on the character created by Rube Goldberg the comic strip was published coast to coast from 1915 to 1934. The boxes One inner flap is detached but present, one end flap is reinforced with tape, toy has sun fading on one side.Strauss manufactured two versions of the toy. One with a flat top hat, and the other with a normal hat. The hair styles and heads were also different. It's a simple enough toy.
Hinged at the waist it mechanically moves it's upper body from side to side. Its arms hang down freely and swing to the movement of the torso. The movement is sufficient enough to make the toy vibrate, or "walk". All parts including arms, hat, and shoes are original.Best of all it works beautifully! The color illustrated box panels shows a happy, carefree Boob dancing a jig down the street. The side panels each have a different four segment comic strip. These give you a good idea of what the original strip looked like. The item "Vintage 1920s Strauss Boob McNutt Wind Up With Original Box / Excellent & Works" is in sale since Saturday, May 9, 2020.
