Fisher Price Egg Truck

The Egg Truck is one of the oddest of the old Fisher Price Easter toys. Dating from 1947, it features a farmer duck with delicate felt arms driving a strangely designed truck as he delivers his load of eggs to market. Disturbing cannibalistic theme aside, the 12 1/2 inch Egg Truck made a very practical Easter basket, as parents could load up the truck bed with candy and treats. The Egg Truck is very hard to find today, as it wasn't made for very long, and the duck's felt arms were damaged quite easily.
