This vintage tin litho dog toy has stolen my heart! "Teenie Weenie" is a circa-1950s wired remote toy who looks like a colorful dachshund dog. She is wearing a bright blue coat with pink trim and yellow polka dots. The middle of her body is a long, flexible spring that stretches and bends as the toy moves -- like a real life version of "Slinky Dog" from Disney's Toy Story movies. Teenie Weenie was made in Japan by "Imports Inc."

The toy comes complete with its gorgeously illustrated original box -- such charming mid-century artwork. The box even contains a promotional letter from the toy company's mascot, advertising other mechanical toys from the same line.

"Teenie Weenie" is not just a fantastic vintage display piece, though -- she still runs perfectly! Pop some batteries into the handle at the end of the wired remote, and Teenie will scoot around your floor as if she just came off the assembly line.

So much whimsical nostalgic charm, you may just fall over when you open the box.

{{Dimensions}}

Teenie Weenie measures approximately 9.25 inches long when the spring is not extended. The box measures 9.75 inches long by 3.75 inches wide by 3 inches tall.

Toy and box together weigh 362 grams.


{{Condition}}

This toy is in great condition! The box displays very well; the colors are nice and rich, and the box has no rips and just a few scuffs. The cardboard has a little bit of "foxing," as shown in my photos. The toy itself also looks great; bright and shiny, with just a few minor scuffs. I have battery tested the toy, and it is in excellent running condition.


{{Shipping}}

I live in Canada, and will be shipping via Canada Post. I apologize for their high rates! I will refund any overcharge on shipping over $1 -- I'm not out to make money on shipping fees.

US BUYERS: Because of the toy's value, I will use Expedited mail for this package. It is more pricey but it includes coverage and a tracking number, and is usually pretty fast. I will charge a flat rate of $25 and cover any additional amount. The delivery estimate is 4 to 6 business days. Express and Priority mail are also available for an additional charge. I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases whenever possible!

CANADIAN BUYERS: Regular parcel post within Canada will be between $15 and $25, depending on your location. This price includes tracking and delivery confirmation, and I will chip in the cost of insurance against loss. Please contact me with your postal code for a more exact quote. I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases, and within Canada, you can probably get quite a big box full of goodies for not too much extra shipping money.

OVERSEAS: Air postage for this item will cost about $55 to most European countries. This service includes coverage against loss/nondelivery up to a value of $100 CAD; it does not include tracking. If you want tracking and/or full insurance (which I recommend), the shipping cost will be higher. Please contact me for a quote.
