A handmade, vinyl elephant for preschoolers’ play. And a plastic, roly-poly clown with a weird/vaguely familiar sound accompaniment. That sound we’ve heard before from other numerous roly-poly figures.
It’s so interesting to me that the roly-poly clown would be scary/threatening to a new generation. What is it about that benign plastic visage that is so difficult? Maybe it’s that it does nothing other than smile and makes a ding-dong sound? Maybe that is all it CAN do. For a generation used to extraordinary technology, this 50s children’s toy is supernaturally static.
