Sunny and hot
What I've always found interesting to early American toys and manufacturers is that there was that perhaps some "unwritten" code of honour, whereby different manufacturers would make similar-looking toys. There appears not to have been any lawsuits like we have today to round corners on cell phone patent infringements or screen size. It was (perhaps I might be wrong), a "live and let let" environment.
Another very interesting bit of information that I recently found is that cars way back were made of wooden parts. I'll of course need to investigate further, but here is an interesting link to a current manufacturer of replacement old car parts:
Today the Freitag Manufacturing Company is much lesser known than the other cast iron toy manufactures of the 1920's-1930's However, they made a nice collection of toys at the time. If you do a search on the Net, you'll find lots of nice examples of their toys.
