Tick Tock Sand Toy

Description:
What a great specimen of a tin toy. This even includes the original box.

This is one of those toys that you sit and watch but when you do, you are actually learning something.

Gravity causes the sand to flow out the bottom of the funnel and hit the shovel. When the shovel is full, gravity causes the shovel to pivot and tip where gravity then empties the shovel. The shovel pivots back and the process starts all over again.

Each time the mechanism pivots, the attached pendulum swings and a ball bearing inside a box rolls to the other side and provides the famous "tick" "tock" sound.
