CRAGSTAN ASTRONAUT BOY FACE - YONEZAWA - JAPAN

Tin friction crank action skirted astronaut. Currently dated to 1962. This is a friction inertia crank operated robot. The astronaut advances with shuffling motion as he makes a clicking noise. This toy has a fixed mouth. The blue Space Man variation has a moving mouth. Based on the Yonezawa skirted robot body.

Two versions of the astronaut are known: the one shown here has the boyish face (as used for the Yonezawa Space Man). The other has an older man's face.
