Description: Tumbling Tim is a very unusual push toy and the fact that he was only made for one year makes him very hard to find. Tumbling Tim is a colorful clown that turns flips as he is pushed. He has a big round belly, and arms and legs that flop as he performs spectacular stunt. When Tim rolls forward on his belly, his head attached by a durable steel spring folds backwards, and he completes the roll on his nose. As Tim rolls, a hidden clapper rings a bell twice with each revolution. Tim is pushed via 18" long push stick.
