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.

From Vintage Toymaster
I've started to present Dinky Toys on this blog. They were, and still are one of the most popular miniature toys that were made. I was able to get permission from Vintage-Toymasters to write about them and their fine Dinky Toys available for sale on ebay. The reason for my having selected Vintage-Toymasters, is that they have a fabulous selection of older Dinky Toys available for sale.

A Brief History of Dinky Toys

Introducing Vintage-Toymasters Fine Selection of Dinky Toys
Dinky toys were originally made in Liverpool England. As Dinky Toys became more popular, these toys were also made in France. Most of the model toys were reproduced after British vehicles, although there were some modelled after then famous and popular American cars.
As you can see, Vintage-Toymasters certainly has a fine grouping of early Dinky Toys. They also present excellent photography with large-sized photos that always help to present the toys in their best manner. I haven;t added much narrative because I thought that these fine old toys tell the story much better.
