This circa 1956 game was manufactured by GAMA in West Germany. It features a tin “mousetrap”, decorated with images of cats and kittens taunting and teasing the trapped mice inside. The mousetrap features a swinging door and clear top. Inside the trap one is to place the included wind-up tin gray mouse. The mouse is wound-up with the accompanying key, and it runs around inside the trap or until it runs out through the trap door to be “caught” by the cat. The game comes with the original box, which has miraculously survived since the 1950’s however it does show some battle scars. Nice to have in any event!
Toy is in good vintage condition, with minor wear commensurate with age and type of use. Wind up mouse includes original winding key and is in running condition, although it could use a light tune-up. Box has wear and tears commensurate with age.
