Description

This baggage cart was manufactured by Modern Toys in Japan during the 1950's. It is lithographed tin and is battery operated. The front has a 180 degree friction wheel that allows the toy to turn in circles. If it becomes blocked by an object, the driver's arms perform a mechanical motion, simulating that he is maneuvering the cart, and the cart will move around the object.
