Meet Rover the Poodle Bell Ringer! This adorable battery operated vintage toy is a bright pink puppy with her original box. She is pictured here with her friend "Balloon Bunny" (available in a separate listing, linked below). I recently picked up a small army of these vintage battery-operated animal toys: little mechanical dogs, cats, bears, and more, in every shape and size and color of the rainbow. Rover, with her festive polka-dotted dress and bubblegum-pink fur, is particularly charming and decorative. Rover the Poodle was made by “Amico Imports”/ “Y Japan”, according to the box.

Rover's pink fur is a synthetic plush, but the white fur that decorates her head, ears and legs appears to be genuine fur -- it is very soft. My guess, from the downy texture, is that it's rabbit fur.

Rover is not much of a bell ringer at present, despite the claims on the box. She was supposed to move forward, ring the bell in her hand, and make barking noises: she currently does none of those things, though she seems to have a working motor (see condition notes below). Still a great decorative piece, and possibly a good candidate for repair!

{{Dimensions}}

The poodle toy is approximately 10.5 inches tall. The box measures 12 1/8” long by 6 1/8” wide by 4” tall. Box and toy together weigh 514 grams.


{{Condition}}

The poodle toy is in excellent display condition -- she has nice fresh bright fur, and looks almost like new. The box top has some wear and soiling consistent with my photos. I've battery tested the toy, and I can hear the motor running steadily inside, but I can’t seem to get it moving. Seems like a good candidate for repair (or just for decorative enjoyment).
