This is very old! Is it rare? What is the value of something like this? Any information would be very helpful to me.

Thank you :)

    "The Educated Monkey" toy was originally patented June 27, 1916 by William H. Robertson. Just my opinion, but to my eyes yours doesn't look original and it has been reproduced.

    Here is a great page that illustrates the 1916 version:

    Here is a photo of the reproduction and comprehensive information about the original toy:

    Here is the original U. S. patent:

    Hi!
    It is orginal. It has that patent date on it. I tried to take a photo of the date with my camera but it would not focus. :)
