Vintage 1950's Mid Century Modern Kid's Fish Rattles by Ideal

We have an adorable pair of mid century, 1950's, fish rattle toys for auction on Ebay.  Both are made of plastic.  The green one has no maker mark, we can still hear the rattle inside, it has no chips, but it has some age crazing.  The blue fish has the maker's mark of "Ideal", was made in USA, we can hear the rattle inside and there is something heavier inside, perhaps a weight for when it was used in a bathtub? The blue fish's surface color and paint is really, really nice, there is a small crack starting on one side of the head.  These would look great in a child's room.
