Toy features great design, and 3.5x6.25x1.5" tall base has toy and company name on end opposite winding key and baseball game images on others. Top has dimensional baseball player w/period uniform and ball stand. When wound, actions include ball in bowl is raised up by center plunger, player goes back and then swings at the ball, sending it off for a distance. Toy works well.
