Monkey Calculator Tin Toy is an ingenious invention from another time.
This clever little toy was invented almost 100 years ago and was first made in the United States.
When it was first developed it was used as an educational aid. It makes maths so simple even a monkey could do it.
This is a fascinating toy and wonderful to see simple mechanics providing such a seemingly magic answer to a question.
To make the monkey answer a question just move its feet. The answer will appear between its hands...
It also has a little fold out stand.
