Oswald the Lucky Rabbit - The Only 3 Merchandise Items during Walt Disney's Period

Q: I am searching for information concerning a spring wind-up doll named Oswald after the cartoon character of the 1920s. I understand he was before Mickey. Any information and possible value would be appreciated. Do you have one in the Archives?

A [Dave Smith]: There were only three Oswald the Lucky Rabbit merchandise items made during the period that Walt Disney was making the Oswald cartoons — a stencil set, a pinback button and a candy bar. Other items would have been made later, during the period that Walter Lantz produced the cartoons. We do not have any information on them.
