This TPS Toy Soldier riding a horse is a great find - no major paint wear to the l body or horse, he even has his pull along cannon which is often missing. He works , as long as he is on a surface that is not too slick. Soldier goes up and down, and wheels move him along , very nice key would toy from the 1960s. Marked TPS Japan on the side , TPS manufactured tin toys in the 1950s to 60s.
There weren’t that many made, only 12,000 worldwide, according to William Gallagher’s book on TPS toys. TPS began manufacturing this toy around 1960. He is in excellent condition and would be a great find for anyone collecting toys .
Size: 6 ¼ inches long from the back of the cannon to the horse’s nose; about 5 inches tall at the sword’s tip; 2 ¼ inches wide at the windup key.
He reminds me a bit of a nutcracker soldier,and was perhaps a toy issued at Christmas time?
