This blog discusses old toys from the early 1920's to the end of the 1950's. All kinds of topics are discussed.
The time span was the greatest period for "hands-on" toys, where a young child could actually go outside and play for hours at a time.
You can see the elegance but simple design of these toys. It was a time when huge machines, and people made and finished toys by hand.
The era has long passed, but many of the toys are still around, and that is what I would like to share.

Classic Tin Toy Company - Toy Parts

The Classic Tin Toy Company
While I was writing the post for the Orkin toy ship company, I came across toy parts for the Orkins. The search had come up with the Classic Tin Toy Company. When I started to sell toys onE-Bay, I figured that I could buy the damaged or missing part toys and fix them up. So periodically, I'd buy those "scrappers",buy parts, paint them up and sell them. Not everyone likes "restored" toys, and although I did make a mall profit, the effort wasn't worth the time.
However, I did meet some very nice you parts sellers and stores, and one of them is the Classic Tin Toy Company. I already wrote a post on the many fine toy parts sellers on the Net ,so just do a search on this blog and you'll find that post.
What I like about the Classic Tin Toy Company website is their very nice page design. It's colourful, and I like the graphic numerical designs in back of the toys. Also, you can actually see photographs of the parts that you need to purchase.
