Rattle Fish, ca. 1949. Number 710 and number 710A (fish with wheels and rope).

One of the original plastic toys. The rattle was made from two mirror-image pieces. It was molded in many different colors, including swirled colors (made by mixing different colored plastic granules together before heating). The details, including the eyes, lips and fins were hand painted.
