Cragstan Great Astronaut is a big battery operated toy,with a lighted space scene in it's chest and a metalic antenna that functions as on/off switch.

Obviously related to the Alps TV Spaceman..


The box features a simple and plain design of the Astronaut and it hardly turns up in auctions.It almost doubles the market value of the toy,if located..
