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.

Another Fine Vintage Tractor from Mr. Michael Hadshian
Wednesday, October 19, 2016 Sunny with Clouds, 13 Celsius 56 Fahrenheit
WHen I first had asked Mr. Michale Hadshian if I could use his photos and descriptions, he mentioned that he would have other tractors for sale next week on ebay. Sure enough, I received an e-mail from Michael today, informing me that the other tractors were now listed for sale. When I looked, there were 22 bids for this particular tractor that you see below!
Arcade Oliver Row Crop 70 Tractor
Length: 5 1/2" 139.7 mm
When a toy is photographed well, it most certainly looks that much better to the viewer.
That's all there is for today.
I let the photos "speak for themselves" and the tractor.
