Item of the Day: Vintage Donald Duck Holgate Puzzle

Baby boomer vintage toys don't get cuter than this!   This wooden frame tray puzzle for a small child was made by the Holgate toy company.  I love vintage Holgate toys.  It's an interesting company, founded in 1929, with many toys designed by Jarvis Rockwell, the brother of artist Norman Rockwell.   This sweet puzzle features the Walt Disney character Donald Duck.  The puzzle has 12 pieces, is perfect for a preschool age child, and would look so cute on display!   Donald Duck puzzle at Birdhouse Books
