The frog is at least 40-45 years old. I was told by my uncle that it came from Okinawa Japan and its older than me. I have been playing with it since I was old enough to walk. My uncle passed it down to me, but I've never done any digging to find out about it. It is 3.5' in height, and the base of it is about 17" around. It says something on the front in a language I can't read, and a makers mark on the top by the foot that is too rusted to read. If anyone can tell me something I would GREATLY appreciate it!
