Made of stamped metal, this turtle toy dates back to at least 1956. It has an articulated head and tail which combines with a magnetic stick (this is the one grandpa always used, but I don't know if it's original) which causes the turtle to "bite" it.

I spent countless hours playing with this toy as a child - trying to see how close I could get before I got bit.
