Mechanical rabbit
China
1975-1979
Museum no. B.117-1996

The body of the rabbit is made of lithographed tin plate and has an internal clockwork mechanism. The ears are white plastic and the legs are painted metal. The rabbit's dark pink eyes are loosely attached inside the head so that when the toy is wound and the rabbit hops, the eyes wobble. It was made in China probably for the local market rather than for export.
