Mr. Bim of 1950s or early 60s.
This toy has a rubber face, hands, banana, ears, and shoes. The rubber is intact but needs cleaning. Suspenders have lost their elasticity but are there. One bell remains on the right suspender, red bow, yellow upper and brown limbs and lower body. The previous owners had to have been fairly heavy smokers.
Other very similar stuffed toys are called Zippy or Zip but I believe this is actually Mr. Bim.
NOTE: This item is being sold as a collectible and is not for use by children.
