|This is the
#415 Pop-Up Kritter called Lop-Ear Looie made by Fisher Price in 1934
ONLY. This one is in really beautiful condition. The only
imperfections I can find on Looie are a couple of areas of paint fading
on his nose and one eye. He is otherwise perfect. Looie
stands on a red guitar shaped paddle which, strangely, has four holes
drilled in it. This toy uses only two of those holes for its
strings. My guess is that it was assembled this way at the Fisher
Price Factory in 1934, and that they used one of the red paddles
originally meant for the Tailspin Tabby Kritter. But your guess
is as good as mine. Clearly, this toy has not been restrung.
The strings and metal rings are definitely originals. The
paddle has a bit of paint wear...but not bad at all. The stamping
on the paddle is somewhat faded. I can't make out the copyright
number, but I can see that the copyright date is 1926, which is correct
for this toy. Lop-Ear Looie is in perfect working condition.
