Looking for a small DC Motor

Hi all, I’m trying to fix up an old electromechanical toy.

Here are the specifications as per a helpful YouTube video:

This one from Lee’s looks like the correct one, but I’m not sure:

Any suggestions?

There are many dozens of motors like that at VHS. I’m not sure of the exact size, but I have both taken-from and added-to the stash over the years, including some that looked very similar (still in their Radio Shack packaging, I think).

You’ll find several shoeboxes on the far side of the electronics benches with smaller motors. And at least one on the larger electronics parts shelf with larger motors.

Please reuse the old stock if you can find something suitable! And take a second one to keep as a spare.
