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 1932 Fisher-Price introduced 2 more toys to the line, the #365 Puppy Bak-Up and the #375 Bruno Bak-Up. The names of the #350 and #360 Walky Balky toys were change from "Go 'n' Back" to "Bak-Up" and patent numbers were assigned. The name changed, but the motor and action did not chance. Wind his key and Bruno pushes his wheel barrow across the floor and backs up.
