Clockwork monster novelty with a spinning tail

This little monster runs wild when you wind it up and put it down on the floor. It rolls around at random and needs plenty of space because you will never know where it will go. It will do an excellent job of surprising and scaring your family and friends. Made in Germany is written on the eyes. Over the years Davenports sold many versions of this novelty under the name ‘Bogey Bogey’. See the Davenport advertisement illustrated. However, this one is rather different in that it has a spring loaded clip on the back so that, presumably, you can clip it to someone’s cloths, creating additional mayhem.
