    G.I. Joe Jouncing Jeep Toy with Box (Unique Art Manufacturing Co., 1940s). The G.I. Joe character first appeared immediately after World War II, but was a short-lived toy -- nothing like the doll produced almost twenty-five years later. The first incarnation was a smiling, silly-looking characterization of a soldier in a jeep. Manufactured by Unique Art, this wind-up lithographed tin toy features the original Joe comic military figure seated in a multi-colored jeep. The clockwork action causes the G. I. to bounce up and down as it moves forward. This toy is in good working order. The 7" x 8" Jeep is in immaculate condition, with very little wear. The paint is still glossy, and the bodies of Joe and the Jeep are in fantastic shape. The original box has little to no wear and is completely intact. The label colors still glow. A sterling example of this toy with its original box. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
