Thats a funny little cubist styled camera ! I also have some of Herbert George`s colourful boxes, some Mark VII and some Savoy`s, but never seen this work of art. I clean them with a spray for plastic car parts. Yours looks well polished

Camerapedia tells me that this was also marketed as the Official Cub Scout Camera.
It is an interesting piece of design historica. My guess is that the designer of this toy camera was aiming for a press camera look - just the thing for a budding 12 year old gunning for his photography badge.
Although I am not a toy camera collector, I think that this might well have caught my eye in the flea market too. As you say Doug, a nice piece of mid-century design.
