Uncle Sam Kicking the Kaiser Phonograph Dancing Toy by the National Toy Company


The phonograph was the major center of entertainment in the 1900ís.  To add to the amazement of the phonograph, toys were added for the interest of the audience.

The National Toy Company conceived of a phonograph toy named Ragtime Rastus.  He was patented on March 16, 1915.  Other figures pertinent to the times were soon added such as the animated duo of "Uncle Sam and Kaiser Bill" in 1916.

Their feet lightly tap on a wooden platform upon which Uncle Sam and the Kaiser are suspended by a stiff piece of wire.  The mechanism that makes them dance is below the platform that fits over the spindle of the record turntable.  As the spindle turns, the wire that supported the figures is rapidly raised and lowered, giving the dancers their lifelike action.  A small wooden adapter ring couples the device to the turntable spindle. The imprint "National Toy Co." and patent dates are found on the underside of the platform. The figures have some areas where paint has flaked off as seen in the photos.

These dance figures sold from $1.25 to $3.00.  You could purchase combinations consisting of one mechanism and various sets of figures for a greater savings.  They all came in the same box with different designations of the item stamped on the top of the box.

Uncle Sam & Kaiser Bill are all Original. Mechanical Platform is Original. Sold Complete as Shown.

$785.00 including shipping in USA

The shipping box is of heavier construction and in good condition. II is an item that very scarce and rarely found with these phonograph toys.
