Wind-up tinplate space toy''Sputnik''. One of the most beautiful Soviet space toys. It was made in 1959 at the Leningrad Metalware Plant (Leningrad, USSR). Very well preserved complete set with all paper inserts "as from a store of 1959". This toy will be 59 years old this coming March.
Let's talk about how it works. Red cosmic capsule (reminiscent of Sputnik-3) circling around the eastern hemisphere of the Earth. The movement is accompanied by "sounds of transmitted radio signals". There is a handle of stopper mechanism on the top.
Beautiful design of a toy and a box too. On different sides of the tinplate toy we can see fantastical fairy-tale characters on the background of the cosmic space. On the sides of the paper box we can see aircrafts of different eras, from balloons to spacecraft projects of the future.
