The Brownie Chiquita, ca 1959, is a simple plastic box camera for size 127 roll film.  This model is really a Brownie Bullet camera with a different name, and a Spanish rather than English front plate.  The original box is also in Spanish.  But curiously, the instruction book is in English, and for the Bullet camera.  It does not mention the name Chiquita.  I half-seriously wonder if the reason this example appears to have no use, is because of the English language manual?  This theory may sound silly given the camera is so simple to use.  But if the camera is so easy to use, why print an instruction book at all?  Well, I said I was half-serious!

This is a nice example of an uncommon Brownie model.
