Earlier this month I introduced you to a tiny set of Yogi Bear cartoon characters that I had found in an old train case; but there was one other tiny character in that old piece of luggage and it’s time to give him a nod!
Donald Duck was hiding there, too, and he’s nodding “YES” to say that it’s time for him to get a little attention.
Just like Yogi and his friends, the Donald Duck nodder is about 2” tall. He is made of plastic and is painted with primary colors. His markings include “Walt Disney Production” in a small circle on his side…..the other side says “Made in
Donald Duck is much like the bobblehead figures of today with his head bobbing/nodding up and down. Instead of being a toy or collectible figure, I think Donald was probably marketed as a birthday cake topper along with his buddies Mickey Mouse and Goofy.
