Animals On Sticks

In Antiques of American Childhood, Katharine Morrison McLinton writes
"These toys ... were illustrated in early prints and universally sold by street pedlars. Although the Jack was the most popular there were also monkeys on a stick, dancing skeleton, and numerous animals including deer and horses."
(End of quote)

Monkey on a Stick Toy

This is another version of our popular ONE- STICK ACROBATS. Agile and agreeable, these animals will amaze you with their ability to master the difficult art of acrobatics with a few simple shakes of your wrist. You will wonder how these charming beasts can perform such astounding feats of acrobatic dexterity. Shown here are the monkey and unicorn, but also available is a horse.
