Description

The listing, What is it? Some sort of paddle toy? Never seen anything like it, estate find has ended.

This strange looking paddle has birds that peck the board when the ball and string on the bottom moves. Never seen anything like it. But thought maybe someone here knows what it is. It says the gift shop paper type tape on the back and at mount Rushmore, keystone South Dakota. Free shipping, size of a ping pong paddle. One credit start of what is it...lol.

OMG I had one of these when I was little! You hold the paddle and make the ball underneath swing to make all the chickens peck in order! Old school figit toy!

I notice when the ball did circles they all pecked. That is why I did not know if it was a toy, or just something the gift shop sold long ago, or what it was...but thanks for letting me know :)

They should have more creative toys like this, my kids missed out on so many cool things that I had. Now its all video game and the new game that is popular at the time.

Hello Friend, it's been a long time since I have been on here, I see you are still putting great items up as usual.
I was reading though the comments and thought I would give you some more information regarding this wonderful toy you have up for bid.
These were actually made as far back as the 1930-'s, and were made in 3 prominent areas: USSR, GERMANY, SWEDEN, and there have been some found in Britian as well but these were not as uniform, definitely looked more home made.
