Not something I would do often but it has been done. The reason I picked this up was the state of the litho paint is really amazing. The xylophone table and legs are very nice as is the tin base it sets on. The one blue key is indeed missing paint as are the ones next to it.But since that's the play surface it's not bothered me. The ears flop as they should Mickey does rock back and fourth when playing. The paint on Mickey is also very nice. I do not note any rust areas on this. All the tin tabs are bent and tight.
The on off switch does operate as it should also. The tail is gone to time that's the down side here. I just think that the state of the paint outweighs the missing tale and that s the reason I bought it. It's has been well kept and cared for. Let me know any questions you may have Thanks!
