The card reads, "Up North in the Land of Ice and Snow : It's a 'Cold, Cold World' for the Eskimo! But since I'll get you Willy Nilly : Come on 'Thaw Out' : 'Don't Act so Chilly.'"

A mechanical Valentine. The head and arm of the male Eskimo can be moved, which in turn moves the woman's eyes and arms to reveal a heart clutched to her chest. The heart reads "There's a warm spot in my heart for you." A small tab at the bottom can be used to make the card stand.

Inscribed on the back in ink are the names of the two people the card was sent to, along with the date.
