Wind-up Santas in a small collection of antique Santa toys. This assortment of Santas do various things, such as shoe shine boots, read a book, totter and shake in a funny gait, ride behind the reindeer and answer the phone.

The ages of these pieces range from the 1920s through the 1960s (an estimate). There is one modern Santa, a Rucus Studio squeaker Santa by Scott Smith, is hanging out in the background.

Prices for these Santas can range for a few dollars for the plastic push-up in the front, up to $300. for the 1920s Santa walker.
