Welcome to Weird Mary's Shop! A collection of weird, interesting, and unique treasures! Enjoy! And, please come back soon!

Up for sale is a wooden music box figure. The flat wood character is a hand painted Wee Willie Winkie figure. On the back, the music box says Made in Switzerland. I have searched the internet, and cannot find one like this! Some call this figure Willie Winkle.
I found it at an estate sale on a closet shelf behind some Christmas decorations! The short song it plays sounds like a Lullaby. (about 2 min). The music box has a pull string on the back.
.
The figure stands 8" high, 5 1/2" wide. There is a partial red sticker or paint on the gold sack he is carrying (as shown in photo), but it looks like part of the design, so does not detract from the colorful figure. Wee Willie wears a blue jacket with light yellow stars, red pj pants, white and red dots shirt, he holds a lantern lamp and carries a gold sack. He has a white beard and eyebrows, and resembles a little elf with his nightcap on his head!

Wee Willie Winkie is from an old Nursery rhyme: "Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town, upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown, Rapping at the window, crying through the lock, Are the children all in bed, For now it's eight o'clock".

Please let me know if you have any questions, and I'll be happy to help. I want you to have a good experience shopping with me, and I'd love your positive feedback!
