For this birthday post, I am showcasing a wonderful find that I can't part with! Meet Barky! ('woof')
I wasn't expecting to get so attached to the little guy, but he has a lot of character and makes me laugh. Barky is a Boston Terrier pup. Made by Fisher Price, this toy sold from 1958-1960. (Information from This Old Toy: "Barky at This Old Toy") I purchased him in a lot from eBay.
Barky is a wood pull toy with decals on the sides and across the top. He has two painted wooden eyes (which are slightly offset on this guy). It gives him kind of a crazy/curious look that is very cute. His ears and leash are plastic. I don't think the leash is original, but he did need something to pull him by, so I left it on him. Barky also used to have a plastic tongue sticking out, but is broken off on this one (I mean... it is in his mouth!)
Barky is stamped with the Fisher Price seal on his back. He is quite small and measures about five inches long from nose to tail.
