Balancing Tecumseh Toy
Our Toymaker often laughs at the fact that the only thing worse for the Mighty Chief Tecumseh to think about than being on the same toy with a British General would be to be on the same toy as a "Long Knife". Especially Harrison! However, maybe he would not object to this toy. He is on his horse leaping into the wilderness, and just look where he is. Right "On Top" of the British General!
We think that you will love looking at the way that Tecumseh balances himself on the edge of that cliff.
