Vintage Pepsi Mechanical Bear Battery Operated Toy Alps Japan!

I understand that these bears were produced under license. Unfortunately, in his present state he isn't working and the inner base of the battery compartment is rusty and there may have well been a battery leek. There is also something tiny that rattles within him. Someone with the right knowledge may be able to repair him. I honestly couldn't say. Therefore, as he currently sits, I am selling him on appearance and subject matter as opposed to functionality.
