This listing is for a fully functional, BATTERY OPERATED SHOOTING BEAR w/box as shown. This is not a reproduction toy. It is in excellent - mint condition. The actions of this toy are as follow: When batteries are inserted in the remote, and the button on the switch is pressed and held, both the bear's eyes light up, he starts walking forward, he stops, he raises up his rifle/shotgun, his head raises up slightly with the gun, his left eye goes out while his right eye stays on as if he is sighting down the barrel, a shot is then heard....
He lowers his weapon and smoke comes out of the barrel. Very cool to see in action. All the functions work well. Remote battery compartment is clean with original battery direction card. I believe that some versions might have had a red baseball cap on them.
I don't think this one did as there is no glue residue on top of his head. It is listed on page 157. It is a 1950's era toy made by the SAN Marusan Co. The original box is in excellent - near mint condition with only one clear tape repair on the inside of the lid.
