Wind-Up Seaplane Lido Toys
Vintage 1950's-60's Wind-Up Seaplane Lido Toys Airplane
This is a VERY RARE wind-up seaplane made by Lido Toys in the late 1950's or early 1960's. Lido was a small US firm started by two brothers named Seymour & Effrem Arenstein in 1947, and mainly manufactured army men. In their later years they produced airplanes, spaceships, and spacemen. It was sold to Bala Toys in 1964, which then went out of business in 1965. This toy seaplane is made of a soft plastic, making it very durable. The key is metal, and the mechanism still works very well. Measurments: 9" wingspan x 7½" in length. Cool kid's room decoration, or a nice addition to your wind-up toy collection.
CONDITION: VERY GOOD condition. The wind-up propeller mechanism still works great, with vivid blue and yellow colors. Floats are missing. Actual pictures shown, please view the photos and judge for yourself.
