The Teddy Camera is a stamped-metal box camera, made c.1924 by the Teddy Camera Company of Newark, NJ.
The camera came with a set of sensitized cards, and made 2" x 3½" prints, developed on-the-spot within a tubular developing tank which attached to the bottom.
My example is a bit banged up, and doesn't have the developing tank, but as a collector, you take what you can get with a camera as hard-to-find as this one is. I figured I might have a better chance of finding one locally, since I live in New Jersey, but not so much. This one came from Iowa.
The image on the right is an ad from the October 1925 issue of Popular Mechanics.
As you can imagine, this red and gold beauty is now among my favorite possessions!

    I give this a very enthusiastic 'love' - rare camera and very cool. The tank is very rare; I've only seen one tank over the years.
