I happened across a couple of these cute little Musical Jolly Chimps from Daishin made in Japan. These were featured on a recent Pawn Stars show. These are the chimp that bangs cymbals together and push button on head and he grins showing teeth while screeching and his eye balls bulge out. Very cute piece. I have 2 of them and both need to hold button on head down constantly to get him grinning and I know originally one only needed to tap his head and not needing to hold the button down. Any idea how one can fix this, or is this normal that they simply get old and won't work right. These were from the late 50's and early 60's.

I'm new to this forum and have no idea how to post a photo with a thread so any help along those lines and I could post some photos.
