Description: In 1931, Fisher-Price introduced their very first 16 toys. Among these toys were 3 different Go 'n' Back toys from the Walky Balky toy line, the #350 Go 'n' Back Mule (mule), #355 Go 'n' Back Bruno (bear) and #360 Go 'n' Back Jumbo (elephant). The Walky Balky toys are propelled by a motor that makes the toys walk forward and back up unpredictably, just like real live animals. In 1935 another animal, Penelope The Penguin (and her baby) was added to the Walky Balky line. Wind her up and Penelope "walks" with her big sturdy legs as baby follow behind rolling on two small wheels.
