Description: Dizzy Donkey is one of the Fisher-Price patented Pop-Up Kritters (Patented October 5, 1926-No. 1,601,983) that are made of bead and string construction allowing the Kritter to spring to life when the strings are pulled tightly, squirm and sway around as the strings are loosened, and laying flat when the strings are loosened all the way. Pop-Up Kritters are mounted on a paddle and the control strings have metal loops on the end to allow easy maneuvering. The Pop-Up Kritters had become so popular that the 1935 Fisher-Price dealer catalogue boasts that one store sold over 1,000 Kritters in one day without any special promotion.
