(1910) Bing Tripple Trapple
|This is a very early Tripple Trapple Bear circa 1910 called Trupple|
|He still goes along but his back legs are stiff.|
|He is rare and hard to find.|
|He has black boot button eyes.|
|His nose is good, so good in fact, I am not sure if it has been re-done.|
|He is quite large at 11 inches long and 8 inches high.|
|He is bald with no mohair but this adds to his charm.|
|He is stuffed with straw.|
|He is intact but could do with some stitching at the back of his legs, and needs the material pulling round the metal and stitching.|
He has lots of character.
By 1910 this was quite an old fashioned toy. The mechanical walking animals like this had been produced since the late 19th century. Can you imagine a child in 1908-10, before the First World War, who would be lucky enough to have a moving toy bear like this? Amazing!
