      The poor thing looks like its had a rough life, but also like most of it is still there except for its generator...those are commonly missing as they can be funtoys for other purposes by themselves, but even those can still be found?! Looks like it'll be a great project to rescue, if that's your plan?! :-) Is there legible info on the remains of its paper label to give you more clues about it?
