Description: This toy features a large wooden cart in the shape of a duck with brightly colored Granny duck lithographs on the sides. When the cart is pulled, the toy makes a "click-click" sound while granny turns her head from side to side. In 1939 only, this toy was also sold as #545 Granny Duck with no clicker and a non-movable head. Although the #545 has a different part number (for ordering purposes) both carts are marked "#540" making it a bit confusing for collectors. Granny Duck was changed in 1941 with a different bonnet and face.
Accessories:
  • 1939-1940 - FPT4276 - Wooden cart in the shape of a duck that rolls on 4 red wooden wheels. The cart has a red square front and back panel.

The head has paper lithographs on both sides of a granny duck wearing a blue bonnet with flowers on top. When the cart is pulled, it makes a "click-click" sound an granny turns her head from side to side. Marked "540" above a black and yellow Fisher-Price logo on the side. *See "Variations" below.
