Description: In 1939 Fisher-Price introduced a new toy movement design in their Donald Duck Drum Major. Though Fisher-Price had made several Donald Duck pull toys over the years, this is the first to have a moving arm and a baton that really twirls! The same design was used in 1939's #550 or #463-550 Donald Duck Drum Major with Cart. Why the cart and non-cart versions were both sold with the same model number is beyond us! Donald twirling a baton was used in several different toys from 1939 to 1948. Some of these toys have a cart, some have a wooden baton, some have paper lithograph baton, but they all look and move basically the same.
