This wonderful vintage Tom Thumb toy typewriter works like a charm. The typewriter is beige metal and has everything you need--all the keys and shifts and space bar; a ribbon and ribbon reverse knob on the right; and a platen that moves easily and has a release knob for pushing it back when you reach the end of a line. This would be great for display or for use by a child.

The typewriter fits inside a brown plastic carrying case with handle, with Tom Thumb in raised letters on the top. I believe this dates to the late 1950s or 1960s.

The typewriter is in good condition. There is some paint loss on the black metal. The ribbon moves easily but is out of ink and needs replacing. The keys all work but do stick sometimes, and there's still a ding when you reach the end of the line. The case is in fair shape--it has a crack in the back near the hinge, but is still secure. It also has a few scuffs and is a little hard to latch.

Size: The typewriter is 10 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 4 inches (26.6 x 26.6 x 10 cm)
