I don't use one. Is that bad?

I have posted this on a few on-line forums but haven’t gotten any feedback yet. I might be the only one on earth that’s intrigued by this little thing, LOL. It isn’t metal or worth anything so maybe no one here will care! Anyway, I was hoping someone might be able to tell me about this toy/ charm anyway. I know nothing about it except that I’ve had it for years…maybe since the 70s? To me it looks a bit like a Maurice Sendak character but that probably won’t be of much assistance to anyone. It was purchased in the USA, is solid plastic and I can find no manufacture marking on it anywhere or date. I only have 1 but I'm showing you a picture here of its front and back. Also the sign or whatever he is holding has snapped off but I digitally reattached it in Photoshop to make it easier to identify. The penny is obviously there just for scale. Thanks for any help!

Wow,I have no idea. It might have been a Cracker Jack toy from the 60s or 70s. I used to eat the stuff as a kid, but most of the prizes i got back then as a kid just disappeared.Sure my mom threw the stuff out as junk.That is the only thing i can think it to be.Maybe it had a little sign that said Make Love not War or Eat Crackerjacks,just don't know.
