The Educated Monkey, a must have for any tin toy collector, a mathematical toy calculator first created back in 1916 by William Robertson. When the monkeys feet are moved to point at two numbers, the monkeys hands move to indicate the answer, this works by a system or sliding and articulated movements that work together to make calculations. A perfect gift for any tin toy collector or fan of retro kitsch items. In 1909 Consul was well known throughout England and Europe as a trained monkey who rode a bicycle and ate with a knife and fork, so when film producer Charles Urban made a movie of Consuls first visit to the USA, William Robertson was left inspired.
