Vintage kids toys are made with great colors & this 1980s learning toy not only educates but also is a fun display item!
This toy was owned by my nephew in the 80s then once he grew out of it my other claimed it. My Mom was an elementary teacher and worked in a library doing the kids programs – these toys were incorporated in to fun teaching program displays or to share during story time.
This toy is great as it takes zero batteries & can be easily transported. It has a handle & can sit on a table or lap in the car. It educates thru colors, numbers & dexterity features. In addition it has the happy faces of cute little creatures and pets popping up to have fun talking about animals, movies & sounds!
Each door pops open when the coordinating button is pressed. Simply press to click/ lock pop ups back downward again!
In respect to each button/ 'door' you would use:
#1 push button – kitty with milk litho
#2 flip switch – puppy with doghouse/ dog bone litho
#3 rocker slide – chicken with eggs litho
#4 turn dial – bunny with a carrot litho
The back is stamped:
1984 SHELCORE INC
MADE IN CHINA
Measures: 11 x 6 x 3 3/4"
For complete transparency this toy has some scuffs on the base and tinting to the artwork/ lithos as seen in the photos. The 'white' or cream colored plastic has taken on a darker tint which Im unsure if I want to attempt to brighten – I can leave that up to the new owner 🙂
It's extremely clean [my Mom is a neat freak which is a wonderful thing to pass on to your kids 🙂 ] and has been kept safe stored wrapped in a storage box. There are no cracks, chips or ruin of any sort.
Comes from a smoke & pet free home!
