Antique Toys By Type

Long before the days of inexpensive and lite plastics and resins, toy makers used materials that were readily available at the time.  The most obvious material to make toys with was wood, but toy makers wanted more flexibility with the design.  Soon enough toys built with cast iron and tin would dominate the market and then eventually plastic.

There were no video games, computers or flashy toys.  Just simple toy trains, trucks, animals and of course television, comic and radio characters.

Toys came in many shapes and sizes including pull toys, wind-up toys, cowboy toys and toy trains to name just a few.  While today we may look back and see these toys as simple, they were built with care and detail and made the children of that time very happy.  These were not times when children had hundreds of toys gathered from birthday and Christmas.  Children may have had a few simple toys and especially during the Great Depression, buying a toy for a child was a stretch for many families and it just makes these antique toys even that much more special.
