ABOUT THE ITEM

If you're seeking fantastic toys, you've hit the jackpot. The Tom Thumb toy typewriters were first manufactured in the 1930's but continued to be manufactured for many years. Found in different colors, shapes, and models, this little typewriter has been enchanting children for decades.

This specific Tom Thumb is a cool green color, with a removable lid. It is not currently in working condition but would make an excellent restoration project or an as-is display piece. Most of the keys stick but I believe with some oil and a new ribbon, this should be able to be made functional again. The carrying lid snaps down and fits perfectly. All of the pieces are present on the typewriter, and the logo is both unique (a lot of the other models offer a bland, letter-only version of the name) and vivid.

Charming, colorful, and featuring cool graphics, this typewriter is perfect for any writer, child, or vintage toy collector!
