Pintacuda is a spin off from the pull string series. The propeller key gave Pintacuda a tropical 1950's racecar driver feeling, since its name is originated from an Italian ace from that period.
Pintacuda has legs in different heights, which allows him to hop peculiarly, as if it intends to take off in a hurry. The propeller key can be wound with just one finger, turning in a circular motion, or, by using both fingers as you would normally wind up a clock.
You can slightly change Pintacuda's behavior by bending the wire legs gently near the body or the knees. Pintacuda's center legs can be brought closer together, or the four outer legs can be raised in relation to the center legs. Every once in a while, a bit of spray lubricant will keep Pintacuda's engine in top shape.
Colors of feet and propeller key may vary.
