INCLUDED: One (1) FAIR+ condition MATTEL talking puppet. This has been stored for many decades, displays nicely and is 100% original.
This will make a nice place holder until a mint example can be located. The colorful body has some minor cleaning needed to get the white belly and paws bright. The blue fabric and face are vibrant. The voice string does extract and retract but does not catch to activate the recording. Three of the six whiskers have chew marks on the tips. Jerry is missing from Tom`s left paw.

I am not a PUPPET expert so I will defer to those who are. I will let the over sized images do the talking. OVERALL CONDITION IS MUCH BETTER THAN FAIR
