Freaky 1920s Movable Valentine

I found this big, 8 1/4 inch German made valentine at a toy show a couple of weeks ago. Circa the 1920s, it features a great caricature of a girl with a sleek bobbed hairdo and a freakishly gigantic ear. The ear slides up and down, making her tongue move, appearing to seal her valentine's envelope.


  1. I wonder why they included that ear.

  2. Yep. There's just something...disturbing...about it, isn't there? Every time I look at it, it reminds me of the scene in "Blue Velvet" when Kyle MacLachlan finds the severed ear in the field...
