Product Description:

This delightful toy was acquired at an estate sale in Antioch, Illinois. Handmade by a father for his youngest daughter in 1965 for Christmas just after the release of the movie The Sound of Music, this musical “bear-in-the-box” plays “These are Some of My Favorite Things” from that film.

The wooden box that contains the “jumping bear” is solidly constructed with a red-painted wood panel marked “B” in the front and with colorful lithographs of a child’s playthings glued to the side and top panels. The back panel contains the crank so that the music will play once the box is opened. Unlike a traditional jack-in-the-box, the bear-in-the-box only pops out when the front latch is manually opened; the music also starts playing at that moment.

Once opened, the bear-in-the-box jumps up. The bear has a wooden head painted light brown with facial details painted in black. His neck and arms are made of fabric, and he wears a red tie and green frock. The bear himself is in great condition.

This bear-in-the-box is in great vintage condition for a handmade item of 50 years of age. Scratches do appear on the wood panels as well as marks on the lithographs. But, the music still plays clearly, and all metal hinges are in good working order. Please review all photographs for condition issues.

The box is a cube measuring 4.75 inches, and when opened, the bear extends the toy to a height of 7.75 inches. The weight of the box is 1 pound, 1.4 ounces.

This playful bear-in-the-box that plays “These Are Some of My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music would make for a charming gift for any child. Because of its handmade beauty, this box would also be a great addition to any folk art collection.
