Description

This lithographed tin toy was manufactured by Unique Art Manufacturing Company in the 1930's. It is part of the Sky Ranger line, which included various versions of wind-up aircrafts that rotate around a tower. When this Sky Ranger's spring action and clockwork mechanisms are activated through the airplane's propeller, the plane takes off leaving the ground and rotating the zeppelin through the connecting bar. As the toy winds down, the airplane returns to its base, simulating landing. This toy still has its original box.
