Push Button Robot Action!

OMG, I played with this toy for untold hours as a kid. It is articulated at all the joints and when you push the bottom up it releases the tension and he goes crazy. The detail is fantastic and I especially like the separate red plastic pieces inlaid into his torso and attached to his head. The maker's mark reveals that it was made by Kohner Bros. and I sold a companion giraffe push-bottom toy on Ebay this summer. Circa 1967-69.
