Animated Vintage Christmas Window Displays Mechanical 2007
This really takes me back. I've always loved watching the animated figures in the store windows during the holidays. Not many stores do that nowadays...but back in the 50s through the 70s, it was a holiday staple. This guy has approximately 80 of them in his collection..which is enormous! I could probably spend hours looking at them. At home I have 2 large animated figures and a small battery operated one. The large ones were purchased at a yard sale by my parents, and given to me for Christmas about 10 years ago. They had their original price tags and markdowns on the boxes. The tags stated that they originally sold for $120 each, then marked down to $60 each. My folks got both of them for $20 at the yard sale! They were so thrilled to give them to me, because they knew I loved that kind of stuff. Enjoy the animated magic!
