Click To Enlarge

We are pleased to offer a vintage 1960’s battery operated Flying Saucer with astronaut pilot made in Japan by Yoshia and imported into the U.S.by Cragstan.  The Flying Saucer works and it functions as designed.  This Japanese toy features bump-n-go action; it runs forward until it hits something then it reverses direction.  This tin space toy has a revolving spiral antenna that is working with two fixed angled antennas.  Once in motion the astronaut driving the flying saucer moves his arms back and forth when the spaceship contacts something, appearing as if he’s steering the spaceship around the obstacle he hit.  As this is happening a light behind the astronaut and below the semi-circular red and blue lenses flashes as the motor makes a high pitched screeching noise.  The battery box on this vintage tin space toy is clean and in near perfect condition.  The bright orange finish has some scattered scuffs and scratches.  The clear dome also has some scuffing on it.  The toy is marked JAPAN on the lid of the battery cover and KO in a diamond outline logo with the words MADE IN JAPAN under the logo on the back of the astronaut’s seat.  This vintage space toy measures 7 ½” in diameter.  What a great addition to any space toy collection! PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR BEST DESCRIPTION.
