    This is a wonderful ferris wheel toy that my son was given after his grandparents passed. Like new, it came in the original box. I don't believe it was ever played with. It is very cool!

      Can you post a picture of the other side, please? AND the original box! Who made it?

      Oh - J. Chein. Sweet. 1930s-1950's the produced tin0 litho toys. ( i can see the mark.)

      From the Wiki: (KEEP the box & keep the kids away!)

      "In 1926, Julius Chein was killed in a horse-riding accident in Central Park. Control of the company passed to Chein's widow who then turned the management of it over to her brother, Samuel Hoffman, who was already the founder and CEO of the rival Mohawk Toy Company. Under Hoffman's direction, J. Chein & Company expanded and prospered, producing many increasingly complicated mechanical toys. They had particular success with circus and amusement park-themed toys such as roller coasters, Ferris wheels and carousels. These toys command high interest from collectors today and are considered prime examples from the "golden age of toys".

      Sure - I'll take a pic of the other side and the box this weekend. I have a great video of it playing, but I don't think I can post video here. I plan on displaying it in my son's room. Thanks for the comments and the info!

      You can post a link to a YouTube video! Or to a facebook page, I think. I'd love to see it in action.

      This is beautiful, brings back amusement park memories

      I'll see what I can come up with for the video. It really is fun to watch...and listen to! The box is plain brown with the company name and toy printed on it. I'll take some photos :-)

      It looks great, but you can take a screenshot closer in detail.
      And video whenever possible.
      It would be great
