An early example of an exploding fort. It measures 14″ wide with the cannon being 7.5″ long. When the red target was hit on the fort all of the top would explode off. The cannon was replaced later with a tank which you can see is mentioned and shown on the box. The wheels are identical to the wheels on the larger Jacrim Tom Thumb cannon from just a few years before. From 1934 or 1935.
From my private collection.

PLEASE added photo of front cartoon box and lateral….THANKS
I have one of these as well, and mine also does contain a cannon but the box indicates a tank is doing the firing. I have a feeling that they simply never reprinted the box cover .
This is one of about 45 Keystone items I have collected over the years.
