Bakelite Crib Toy

A lovely find from ye olde overstuffed junk shop on St. Clair: it’s a Bakelite crib toy!  I have read about these ornaments whilst researching Bakelite jewellery but have never come across one in the wild before.

It was most likely made by the Tykie Toy Company, who manufactured crib toys in the ’30s and ’40s. I’ll be listing it in the Gracious Good Etsy shop, but am sorely tempted to keep her!
