Monday Classic: The Little King

Based on the wonderful comic by Otto Soglow which debuted in The New Yorker in 1931.

This 3-3/4” micro-monarch was manufactured by Jaymar (Marx family) in the mid-40’s during the wartime heyday of wooden toys. Pull and release the string connected to his rubber band-powered wooden spool and away he goes.
