I love this wee fellow - he is uber cute. rom Japan. He is in excellent vintage condition with no damages of any kind and is fully working. Sadly, his old box is no longer present - but he is too nice to store in the box - and he is priced accordingly. This is a very good price taking into account his age and fine condition. All his features are present - often his nows and his little red tongue are missing.
He dates to the 1950s and was made by Alps, Japan. He is made from lithographed tinplate with a plush fabric finish and cotton clothes. All lovely and clean and not shabby in any way.
He is 7 inches in height.
He has his original key and when you turn it he moves about flipping over the pages of his little metal bay book which he holds in one hand.
He is a light golden-brown furry bear wearing French blue felt overalls with red cloth straps. His shoes are red tin litho and have Made in Japan on the backs. Cubby is holding his tin litho book in one hand and turns the page with his other tin litho hand. The book he is reading is about animals. The pages are: Cat, Dog, Duck, Hen, Rat, Fox, Pony, Pig, and Calf.

I am delighted with the Cubby Bear and so is my uncle who has been looking for a this Bear for some time. Valerie’s personal touch of keeping you posted at each stage was much appreciated, too as it was lovely to know about the Cubby Bear and how much the it has meant to her. Thank you!
