#11 The Moonship Express top is a Cracker Jack prize, circa 1958.
There are 8 in that series, and can be seen here -> Carey Cloud Tops

Neato - and it's in my favorite time period (the fifties) and by Carey Cloud! Thanks, Luke. I guess I'm pretty lucky to have one of these but now that means I have to find the other seven.
The hunt is on!

Number 4 is a Canadian Cracker Jack top, #5 and #6 belong to a set of farm animals that Cracker Jack used, #7 was a real find! There are a set of 12 of these 3-D scenes and they are hard to find! You already know about #11, #12 and #13 are also Cracker Jack. I think #13 is just a sloppy molding job. Nice group!

Wow! Exciting info, Cyndy. A Canadian prize, a rare 3D prize, and five more additions to my collection counting the Moonship Express top Luke identified! It doesn't get much better than that.

I stand corrected! The top I said was Canadian may very well be from the US. Another collector with a lot more information than I have, emailed me that those larger tops were used by Cracker Jack in the US. It is hard to tell with certainty what prizes were used in Canada, unless they are marked as such, as apparently no records have surfaced. I'm sorry for the error.
