Queen Buzzy Bee
Who fondly remembers toys such as this?
This wooden Queen Buzzy Bee pull toy consists of a wooden bee set on wheels with plastic wings and two coiled metal antennae. Pulling the bee forwards activates a noisemaker mechanism and rotates its wings.
It was use by the Harpole family in Saint Paul between 1965 - 1968.
