Description: In the 1932 Fisher-Price dealer catalogue, Fisher-Price announced that "Pushy Pig owes his life to two well-known toy buyers who told us he should be born". We do not know who these two "well-known toy buyers" are, but we do thank them for the birth of Pushy Pig. Pushy Pig is the very first push-toy made by Fisher-Price. Push toys proved to be a good idea as now over 7 decades later push toys are still being made by Fisher-Price. Pushy Pig is a happy little pig mounted on a hobby horse. When pushed, Piggy squeals with delight, his legs run fast, and the hobby horse throws his head back and forth. The size of Pushy Pig was slightly changed in 1934.
