Description The Funny Zig-Zag Copter is a toy helicopter that has a propeller, a rotor, two wheels and is activated by a wind-up key located on the left side. The helicopter comes in an array of colors (yellow, blue, red) with a sticker of a clown in the cockpit. On both sides of the helicopter is a sticker that reads “Funny Circus.”. The Wind-Up Circus Wagon consists of a four-wheeled carriage towed by a pony with decals on both sides that have a picture of a clown and the word “CIRCUS”, a kitten with moveable arms playing a saxophone that makes a toot-toot sound, a little bear playing cymbals in beat with the saxophone, a monkey riding a giraffe, and a wind-up turn-key that activates the wagon when the switch located on the back of the wagon is turned on.
