This is a bagatelle toy called "The New Acroball Game" with a Clown background, it looks to be from around the 1950's - 1960's. There is some scuffing to the plastic top, but it does not affect the game at all. It has a tinplate base with a plastic front , the text on the game reads Marx Toys- Made in Great Britain and it measures approx 24 cm / 9.5 inches. It comes with a box which is quite faded and damaged, with tears and rips in the card as well as a missing flap on the bottom. The toy however is in good condition and great for display.

We describe our items as accurately as possible. Most of our items are 'pre-loved' and will show signs of wear which we will point out. We will not describe an item as mint unless it is. If for any reason you are unhappy with your item, please contact us and we will do our best to sort things out.
UK buyers can pay by Cheque, Postal Order or Paypal.
International bidders are welcome. Paypal payments in UK Pounds are preferred for non-UK buyers, though we can make arrangements for International Money Orders. If you wish to pay by International Money Order, please contact us before sending payment so that we can forward details of our agent.
Non-UK bidders are reminded that this auction is in UK Pounds (GBP - Sterling) not US Dollars or Euros. Delivery costs for UK, Europe and Worldwide are listed seperately. If you are unsure which applies, please ask before paying so as to avoid any confusion. Bidders outside the European Union (EU) should also be aware that they may be charged sales/import tax on items as they arrive into their destination country. This is at the discretion of the local customs office, and is beyond our control. Payment of any sales/import tax is the buyers responsibility. For more details please contact your local customs office.
Small items within the UK will normally be posted by Royal Mail First Class. Larger items will normally be sent by parcel post or courier. Please note that a signature may be required for larger items or items over £40. We aim to send most items within two working days of a payment clearing. If you require special or recorded delivery we will happily arrange this for an additional charge.
We do offer worldwide shipping. Small, lightweight items (under 2kg) can usually be sent via Royal Mail Small Packet Airmail. This service is not trackable/traceable. If you require your items to insured or have a tracking number during shipping please contact us before bidding, so that we can obtain a quote from a courier. Heavy or large items will also need to be sent by courier. This can be quite expensive, especially outside Europe, so please check with us before bidding.
We will combine shipping, so if you buy more than one item please ask for a combined invoice. Where possible we recycle packaging, or use materials that are environmentally friendly. Our boxes are sourced from a company that specialises in quality boxes that have either been supplied for recycling, or where too many boxes have been made on a production run.

We're now in our third year of selling on eBay as a business, though we've sold odd bits and pieces that we've collected, and things that the children have grown out of, since way back when eBay was new.
Most of the items we sell are vintage toys, teddy bears or dolls, though we do keep an eye out for other interesting items. We are regularly in the top 5 largest antique bear shops on eBay UK and usually have a good range of bears - old and new. These include vintage/antique bears from Chad Valley, Chiltern, Merrythought and Deans and newer artist bears from all over the world. Our vintage toys regularly include tinplate and clockwork toys from Japanese makes like Yone, TPS ALPS and others like Wells and Brimtoy. We also try and keep a stock of non-military lead/tin items from Britains, John Hill, Cherilea and Crescent. For those a bit younger (but not that much) we usually have toys, games and action figures from the likes of Palitoy, MB and Spears.
We pride ourselves on describing our items well, but if you are not happy with your purchase and think we have decribed it incorrectly, please contact us. We are happy to give a full refund on safe return of the item.
