Something new again, this time it is a true Marx item. A nodder. This little plastic guy is about 3 inches in height total when his head is fully up. As with most nodders it is all a matter of balance, with the fulcrum being a small loop in the back of his neck attached to the collar of his jacket. The overall design of these is pretty odd, makes it look like he's just thrown out his back.
Marx made several of these, mostly of the standard characters like Mickey, but for whatever reason they made two Alice characters including this Mad Hatter. Stay tuned for the other in a future post.
This item is currently available in the Wonderland Bazaar.
