All tin plate novelty penny toy. Marked "Made In Germany". Spring loaded. Action - Pull back the sprung lever underneath the frog and press the end into the sticky tar like substance under the head (unfortunately now not as sticky as it used to be). The lever is held for an unpredictable length of time so that the toy can be placed on the ground. The toy will then fly up into the air suddenly when the sticky substance looses its grip. In good condition (see photo) and in working order. Date - pre WWII, 1930's or older.
